Re: Active Bending Lights Replacement [2014 XC90]

So I manage to replace my left Xenon headlight bulb and a few weeks later the right bulb goes out. Maybe they have built-in self-destruct timers. After installing new Philips White Vision bulbs the light is not impressive at all. I have noticed that the projector lens inside the headlight is 'foggy'...

Battery Recommendations for 2014 Volvo XC90

Our 2014 Volvo XC90 has the original 12V 90AH 800A that came with the vehicle. Recently, the cabin lights were left on, and the battery was dead. Now the battery doesn't seem to want to hold a charge. I'm guessing 5 years is the expected life of the battery. The battery claims no maintenance so I ha...

Re: Active Bending Lights Replacement [2014 XC90]

Thanks. So I ended up replacing my headlight with a Philips Ultimate White D1S bulb. It wasn't bad but I wasn't absolutely certain about when the bulb was installed properly. I'm pretty sure I installed it ok but it seemed like it there is a chance for misalignment. I'm not very impressed with the a...

Active Bending Lights Replacement [2014 XC90]

The driver's side headlight on our 2014 XC90 failed recently. I understand these are referred to as 'Active Bending Lights'. According to the manual you need to go to a dealer to have these replaced due to the high voltages involved. The owner's manual doesn't even provide the part number for the ac...

Re: Sources for Catalytic Converter [1997 Volvo 850 GLT]

I did manage to find a few catalytic converters for my 850 on partsgeek with the note "Not legal for sale or use in California and New York" or "Not Legal In NY For Vehicles With California Emissions." Most have this note. If the catalytic converter is illegal in NY maybe those 'delete' videos on yo...

Do you mean FCP Euro ID: 202466 or Part #: DEC-VO93523? This part doesn't come up when I set to my car (found via Google search) and I didn't see fitment info so I contacted FTP and individual told me they don't carry a cat for my car.

Thanks.

Sources for Catalytic Converter [1997 Volvo 850 GLT]

I'm looking for a catalytic converter for my 1997 Volvo 850 GLT (LPT). My current muffler/catalytic pipes have been welded a few times and one of the welds recently split open (the one where muffler/cat pipe come together just behind flat support plate). Spot where pipe is welded to back of cat stil...

Intercooler hose to throttle body [1997Volvo850GLT]

I have a 1997 Volvo 850 GLT that has developed a problem where it stalls when I come to a quick stop. My indie suggested there might be a large leak in one of the hoses. Initially I did not find anything but poking around I discovered that the hose coming off the throttle body (and also connects to ...

Re: 1997 Volvo 850 GLT Coolant Question

The little details matter. That's why I usually try to look at a couple tutorials/videos before I try a job. I don't recall seeing anything on depressing the foam but it seemed to give an extra inch. I thought it was a hard insulation covering until I leaned my arm against it during the heater core ...

Re: 1997 Volvo 850 GLT Coolant Question

Funny thing is my 850 comes 'standard' with a large green bin in the trunk containing a 5qt jug of oil, funnel, transmission fluid (power steering?), brake fluid, distilled water, mixed coolant, coolant, washer fluid, air guage and pump, jumper cables. This is just in case I run into a stranded moto...
