Jimmy -- Correct about the pressure. That's why I zip tied it at both ends.

'07 S80 3.2 - Dumping Windshield Washer Fluid - Fixed

So , the Mrs.' sedan had turned the process of filling the washer fluid reservoir into an instant shoe wash station. Diagnosis required removing the front bumper cover -- pretty simple, but the Vida instructions are wrong. They call for removing three fasteners to the aft of the splash shield which ...

Re: Seats. The seating surfaces are leather, coated with a rubberized dye/paint. Other surfaces vinyl. Baby wipes with an old fashioned shoeshine action work a treat on the steering wheel. Magic eraser on the door panels, but not on any glossy surface. My "book" is called MVS. Never bought any kind ...

Baby wipes will work pretty well on the steering wheel.

Re: Starbucks,s Awesome 2004 XC70 buy!

Pete's correct on the springs. Lesjofors. And I should care more about the umlaut over the second "o" than I do, since I actually speak Swedish, but I can't figure it out on the phone, so. . .

Re: ...try, try again.

+1 on the Volvo plugs and Zimmerman rotor, Akebono pad combo for brakes. Works well for me and I'm in a hilly area. For ATF, use the correct spec. fluid. Toyota ATF (of the proper spec) is compatible and way less expensive than the Volvo stuff. I would suggest a transmission drain and fill. You are ...

Re: ...try, try again.

Sometimes you just have to kiss a lot of frogs. In my area I'll bet the XCs outsold the Vs 3:1. High soccer mom concentration. Specific model, I would argue, is less important than service history and condition. Find a good one that's been cared for and it can be a treat. Your maintenance costs on A...

Re: ...try, try again.

As my very British grandfather used to say:"T'was patience and per-sevrance, t'made the Bishop of His Reverence."

You might be better off. You don't need either AWD or the turbo of the XC if you're going to be using the car in Atlanta.
