Re: 96 850 GLT Climate Control Problem

Thanks for the info.

I used a worm gear clamp to fix the motor by the glove box a couple years back. No problem since.

So blower works fine, just won't direct the air correctly?

Yes, the blower runs fine.

Air doesn't come out of the dash. Goes to the windshield OK

96 850 GLT Climate Control Problem

Every time I start the car now, I'm getting the flashing lights on the climate control unit. I know that means it's objecting to something. I'm thinking it's complaining about stuck/inoperative flaps. When I set the dial to direct air to come out of the dashboard, I don't get any flow. In the past, ...

Re: Scared to loosen 18 year old thermostat bolts!

I can't say my memory serves me well on the size. I have a full set of Torx bits, so it may be a T-40, I just typed the wrong size. Just for the record. Did this job earlier in the year, but had the same concern about the bolts. I PB blasted the bolts everyday for about a week. Bought the correct s...

Re: Driver Side Windshield Wiper Arm

I know we all have to find the path to Volvo enlightenment that is right for us. But for those still wrestling with this issue, if you own or can borrow a Dremel tool, it's super easy to relieve about 1mm or less from those two nubs shown at the right of Erik's photo. The result is a totally clean ...

96 850 GLT Transmission Fluid

When I replace the CV boot on the driver side, the transmission fluid that leaked out when the axle was removed was a lot more brown than it appears on the dip stick. So I'll do a few drain and fills. With about 254k on it, any reason not to switch a synthetic? Is it ok to have synthetic/non-synthet...

Thanks

I gripped it right behind the tie rod ball and used a pipe wrench to loosen it.

Re: 1996 850 Tie Rod Replacement Topic is solved

IMG_0746.JPG OK, the CV boot replacement went without a hitch. Hardest part was getting the axle out of the bearing. The axle popped out of the transmission on the first tap using the 5/8" Craftsman chisel. Now I'm on to the tie rods. On the inner tie rod, there are no flats for a wrench. I guess I...
