Re: Rebuilt Calipers - Pins, What's the issue? 30648017

I tried spraying pins with silicone spray, don't think that's going to work. It has its place, probably not on the pins :\

Re: 96 850 interior light problem

Are you able to get to the cut points on the wires to reconnect them? I'd try that first. A female-female crimp connector would probably work, after stripping off a little insulation.

Re: Door lock problems

Do any of these failures result in not being able to open the door at all?

Re: Rebuilt Calipers - Pins, What's the issue? 30648017

Next time I check my pins I'm going to clean them up and spray them with silicone lubricant. It works great on all rubber parts and has no viscosity at all or temperature sensitivity.

Re: 1993 850 GLT Automatic..replacing Rear Main Seal...what else while at it?

Have you checked with a Volvo dealership on the part numbers? Kline Volvo in St. Paul has been really helpful to me when I've asked them to look up something. 651-481-9600. I'm assuming it has an automatic trans, so you might consider changing the transmission cooling lines to/from the radiator. May...

Re: How can I replace an 850 lower control arm bushing?

I was set to go on the LCA bushing replacement, but when I got up close discovered it wasn't as bad as I thought—it was last spring when I had it in for alignment. Just for the lark of it, I decided to unbalance the front tire pressures a bit to see if that would reduce the pull. It does! Not comple...

Re: What's best repair for small (beebee?) hole in headlight lense?

There is a new lens (maybe) available, shows on computer inventory but vendor not sure if it can be found. If so, $90, but it would be new. Plus shipping, ouch. I paid $90.00 for a whole 5 speed transmission for that car (okay, that was 2008, but still). Now, getting it ready for winter again; last ...

What's best repair for small (beebee?) hole in headlight lense?

Parking on the alley has its advantages, as in no close front/rear parking hits or scrapes from curb parking. Unfortunately, vandalism can be a problem. I've been pretty lucky, though have had a couple of windshields taken out, which were fully insured. Now, though, my dear '93 850 has a small hole ...

Re: How can I replace an 850 lower control arm bushing?

We have rain coming in the next couple of days. Hope to pull the LCA this weekend weather permitting and will size everything up. If the replacement bushing is a go, I'll try to get it done and take some pics.
