Re: '98 V70 Frozen front brake caliper

Always keep the factory caliper slide pins even if your caliper is frozen rusted to hell etc. The factory pins are stainless and last forever - just sand them if they get pitted. The rebuilts tend to use the silver cheese metal slide pins.

Neil is right - it's just locked out.

Re: S70 P0133 after SAS Diode Install

Seems unlikely to be related to the SAS delete. I think you are on the rigbht track - vacuum leak, connector, MAF; something that makes it run lean. You'll get a chance to stare at this one when you do the PCV: how is the vacuum elbow at the passenger side of the intake manifold? I'd replace any/all...

Re: 07 XC70 rear window defogger

Finished this job today, thanks folks for the input. I used the Permatex conductive paint product. Found the nicks with a voltmeter while the grid was turned on. Each line had a separate nick, that's why 4 of them were out. Three nicks in a cluster on the driver's side were probably all due to the s...

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

This week I finished the front end and a few other items on the new-to-us 07 XC70. Replaced struts, spring seats, strut mounts, bump stops, front brake lines. Also three engine mounts (torque bottom, torque top, front engine mount under crank pulley). Fixed the leaking oil filter - it had an afterma...

That's interesting - your car has that? Just curious since there didn't seem to be anything in the manual about it.

Re: Fuel filler door locking delay programming

From the 01 owner's manual: > Keys Turn the key once to unlock the driver's door and the fuel filler door. > Using the remote control Press the LOCK button once to lock all doors, fuel filler door and tailgate. Press the UNLOCK button once to unlock the driver's door only. Press this button again (w...

Re: Donor car compatability Topic is solved

My recollection is that final drive ratios are different between GLT and T5 ("turbo") slush boxes, that's why I wrote that. But Maybe I am conflating a GLT/T5 difference that doesn't exist with the final drive ratio difference between the NA and turbo versions.

Backpedaling!

07 XC70 rear window defogger

Looks like there are four lines "burnt out" across the middle, see pic.

Anyone fixed this before on a P2 wagon, any tips?

Re: Donor car compatability Topic is solved

Engine internals and turbo - slightly different. Transmission - different. Everything else - the same. All sensors, mechanical parts, body parts, interior etc. are the same. If it were me I'd gab a ton of stuff. Brake calipers, the standard engine sensors (MAF, TPS, ECT, CPS) as these are known to g...
