Re: Roof Hatch Guide Rail - melted goo on end cap

Vidualize highway tar. As if it was used on the plastic end cap & then shoved into the rail. Except its got a large glob on side of the rail itself. But the factory would clean off excess if it was used to glue the end cap to the rail. If this glob was meant to be there, I would think it would be co...

Roof Hatch Guide Rail - melted goo on end cap

Bought a new OEM roof hatch guide rail, r.h. PN 9159880 Both ends of the metal rail have plastic end caps. On the rear side, there is black goo all over. It seems to have melted the plastic storage bag as well. Seems like an overdose of solvent used to glue the cap to the rail? Should I return this ...

Re: 850 Window SLIDING BLOCK will NOT fit onto ball headed pin

I finally found a C clamp that would fit into the little access hole. Found a video doing a later model car with a HUGE access hole, & the guy said you do need to use pliers to squeeze it. Also, don't lose the clip down the inside of the door. Tie a long twist tie (the kind used to wrap vegetables) ...

Re: 1996 850 need pewter grey paint for plastic (exterior mirror)

What kind of primer for the already-painted plastic housing? Not the filler type for bare metal or Bondo. Do I need to sand the plastic, or use a chemical to soften it?

1996 850 need pewter grey paint for plastic (exterior mirror)

Yard only had a black mirror (hard shell portion) so I want to repaint it. Where's a source of the right paint? Any particular issues with priming the already painted plastic of the exterior mirror housing? Also the "arm" portion, and the mirror side bezel, are a softer plastic and grey (weird...won...

Re: Front door window track R&R (problem with Volvo part)

FYI easier to use the rivet to fasten the Guide, instead of messing with the old bolt fragment : Blind Rivet PN 975586
Be sure to order this rivet, its a different size from some other rivets.

850 Window SLIDING BLOCK will NOT fit onto ball headed pin

The only way to get the ball-headed pin (on the Scissors Arm) "into" the hole in the replacement Sliding Block is to squeeze it with slip joint pliers. But I cannot get the jaw of the pliers behind the Window Rail. When tried just sqeezing the Sliding Block onto the Ball, without having the Sliding ...
