Re: XC70 2004 stolen, 240 totaled.. what now?

Ask yourself:
How much room do I need inside?
How important is fuel economy?
How many miles do you drive per year?
How much HP do you need? (Is turbo necessary?)
Do you REALLY need AWD?

Volvo has probably built, sometime in the last 15 years, a model that fills the bill.

Re: Air Conditioning Issues 02 V70XC

Check for voltage at the compressor disconnect when the car is shut off. If there is voltage present then there must be a relay hanging up somewhere that’s draining the battery.

Re: 2004 S60 non turbo timing belt hex key window

As you rotate the engine the pointer on the tensioner will move back and forth a bit especially if it’s a new belt that’s been folded over in the packaging.

The 6th and 7th characters in the VIN give you the engine family code. You want yours to match the donor car.

Re: Removing Clean Tape On Roof Trim

Also now that the rails are stripped I am toying wit the idea with vinyl wrapping them. We also had an ice white S80 that we recently sold. It had the same peeling problem and I had considered a vinyl wrap as a solution. I don’t know why it wouldn’t work. Some how or another those trim pieces can b...

Re: S60 Brakes Stuck occasionally - 2007 S60 2.5T

Jimmy57, So might that add some validity to my theory about the push rod between the booster and the MC? If the rod is too long it would start pushing the piston forward when you snug up the bolts. I always make sure I can mount the MC up to the front face of the booster without feeling the rod push...

Re: S60 Brakes Stuck occasionally - 2007 S60 2.5T

If the booster and/or MS were ever replaced the installer may have not have carefully matched the push rod length to the original configuration. I’m not really sure if a too-long rod would cause your problem but it was interesting that loosening the MS helped. I would be inclined to try shortening t...

Re: 2006 V70 R -- heater core hoses

What is it that leaks oil so badly that you have to protect the hoses from it? Will the new engine put an end to the leaking?

Re: Approx cost of windshield replacement

I had mine replaced about four years ago after I cracked it with my elbow when removing the shift lever. It took the guy all of about 25 minutes start to finish. At the time it was about $140 for a Pilkington without rain sensor. If you have a rain sensor you’ll pay a bit more.

Re: Car locks itself. Wiring or Module? Topic is solved

If your old DDM has a little white sticker with two or three numbers on it then you want to match those numbers to the sticker on the replacement DDM. I replaced mine a couple years ago with a junkyard part and as I recall I was able to match two of the three numbers. I also made sure the replacemen...
