Re: Recommended brand of Sway bar links 1996 850

Thks for all the quick replies. To GlennG2759, I looked up some reviews about the Mevotech and one site said that they don't have the hex socket to prevent them from turning during installation or removal. How do you hold them to prevent them from rotating during installation or removal? Thks, Dwight

96 850 door lock manual pull

The top portion of the manual lock 'pull' on our 96 850 broke off. What is left is just even with the top edge of the door window frame. Is this 'pull' screwed onto the metal rod portion of the lock? i.e. Can I just remove one at a pick a part or possibly make my own replacement... I would remove/un...

Re: Horning activates by itself

Did the repair of the insulators. After the repair, moved the car out of and then back into the driveway. As I turned the steering wheel when backing out, the horn again sounded by itself. I pressed briskly on the air bag and the honking stopped. I also replaced the clockspring mechanism because the...

Re: Horn Problem 1995 Volvo 850

I replaced the crappy factory insulators (with a kit I bought online) inside the steering wheel after our 96 850 had it's horn go on by itself. It still has the same problem, at least for a short drive into and out of the driveway after the 'repair'. I hit sharply onto the air bag/horn 'switch' and ...

Horning activates by itself

96 850 with about 126,000 km. The horn is coming on my itself. I guess the is a problem inside the steering wheel with the horn wire shorting or ? When the ignition is shut off, the horn no longer sounds. I have had to just disconnect the connectors at the horns. I guess I have to remove the air bag...

97 850 T5 wouldn't start no spark solved, now fuel relay mystery

Well it turned out to be the battery. Took to Canadian Tire and they said it only had 100cca, supposed to be 600cca. Installed new battery and after a bit of cranking and short bursts of starting it finally ran continuously and properly. However, today I replaced the old/plugged PCV system. What a b...

Re: 97 850 T5 won't start; no spark?

When I turned the ignition to the on position to again measure the voltage at the coil red wire it me...

Re: 97 850 T5 won't start; no spark?

Original ignition switch. The connector which plugs into the coil wire has some greenish corrosion inside it but I cleaned it with some degreaser but not Deoxit connector cleaner. But shouldn't 11.6 volts be enough to generate a good enough spark? Why does the coil wire No.1 blue read approx. 5.5 vo...
