Re: Large lower radiator hose?

You have a few good options for parts. That one should just be "intercooler hose" or maybe with the keyword "lower". FCP seems to have some decent looking aftermarket options. FCP Euro is a pretty solid company and a site sponsor, they've always done right by me, even when they've messed up an order...

Re: Large lower radiator hose?

You're fine. The posting here is a little more "slow firing" than a social media site, but the idea is to provide helpful and in-depth resources. So you may not always get a response right away, but give it time. As far as the hose, you can't beat the Volvo OEM. A little pricier, but if you plan on ...

Re: Large lower radiator hose?

It isn't abnormal for their to be a bit of a coating of oil inside the piping. If there is a lot to the point where there is a noticeable leak or pooling, that could indicate an issue with the turbo or PCV system. If those hoses are original, I recommend replacing them with new Genuine ones.

Re: Large lower radiator hose?

Bottom center? Are you sure you're not looking at the intercooler? Your T5 will have a sandwich of condenser-intercooler-radiator.

Please take and upload a picture of what you're looking at so we can help better.

Re: Recommended phone holder?

My recommendation is no phone holder. The use of a phone when driving, in any capacity, is a threat to your life and the life of others. Hang up and drive. I agree in principle, but a lot of people, myself included, really like using our devices for GPS nav which is pretty hands-off for the most pa...

Re: Hissing sound coming from PS pump.

I've found that when I flush/replace fluid, I end up removing a bunch of gunk in the power steering pump reservoir. I believe there's a screen in there. If you aren't seeing any leaks, which is a good thing, it might mean that your pump is having to work a little harder than it should. Maybe there'...

Re: 13t boost questions

Highly recommend Glowshift. They look great and if you hook it up right will dim with the headlight switch.

Re: 13t boost questions

FWIW, I just picked up a rebuilt & balanced 16T off eBay for $300. I'm going to be doing a similar upgrade to my old beast (2000 V70XC 2.4 LPT): -16T -Blue injectors -Tune probably from Hilton Tuning or VAST, looking for like a Stage 1.5 -do88 intercooler -Mototec downpipe & cat Already have TME dua...

Speaker wiring 2000 XC

Hello, I've perused a bit but couldn't quite find what I was looking for (some dead links too). A couple years ago, both my passenger front dash and door speakers went out. I replaced the head unit (HU) and all the speakers but found those two stayed dead. How are those two wired together? My HU onl...
