Re: Transmission fluid change

"Better" is going to be mostly based on opinions and not analysis. So my opinion for a 60k transmission would be drain and fill and every 30k after that.

Re: Remote start

Given its a 2003 Volvo it probably not a hot target for car thieves. I had plans once to carefully remove the rfid chip from the key and glue it near the ignition antenna inside the plastic steering cover. This would basically bypass the immobilizer. My fob case needed to be replaced so when moving ...

Re: Access to Front Passenger Seat Belt on ‘03 S60?

Not sure about the manual seats, but the automatic seats the plastic on the side of the seat rotate up from the back. The hard part is the b Pilar plastic. Be very careful and best do it on a warm day so the plastics not so brittle. I've removed the b-pillar plastic a few times and it's trial and er...

Re: My Impact Wrench Is Not Strong Enough

I have an air impact gun, and recently added harbor freights new high flow disconnects. For $5 it's a pretty significant improvement. I never had issue before but after a lot fewer hammer hits before the bolt wizs off.

Re: General fluid replacement question

I didn't response to what good fluid looks like, once they looks bad it's overdue or the system has a problem. Follow the maintenance schedule, if you don't know the history, it less the $100 for all fluids. What schedule and brands will be a debated topic. I've had 2 Volvos for over 17 years, '02 S...

Re: Air conditioning issues Topic is solved

Re: Removing Clean Tape On Roof Trim

The paint is Magic Blue #467 which has a metallic sparkle so I was really worried about the finish, but after wet sanding the clear and polishing it sparkled! Looks good! Did you wet sand both the base coat and the clear? What papers did you use? I might try some mirror hoods to match factory. Than...
