99 S70t5 Make radio antenna shorter?

My antenna decided to hit a gate coming down or the other way around but I bought a new one. My question is because the stock antenna goes up so high is it possible to make this one go up only half the way by cutting the plastic wire? Also which way does the plastic teeth face? I didn't pay attentio...

Thanks guys. The other question I have is can you put the factory R kit on it? I notice the 2007's have a different rear bumper and I never see the 07's with the kit. I love the look of the exhaust poking out of that rear valence.

Re: 2009 Volvo S60 AC blows hot after smoke coming from radi

You definitely busted an a/c hose. When the smoke came out it was refrigerant from the hose. The hose or fitting wherever it may be that broke sent the refrigerant out which can be mistaken for coolant. The reason the A/C is blowing hot is because there is no refrigerant.

Re: 1995 850 GLT Coolant Leak passenger side AFTER REPAIRS!

Also a crack in the coolant bottle could cause this, as it expands it closes this, then the car sits, it cools, the crack opens and coolant leaks out. Always check the least complicated things first. Sounds like you need a new coolant bottle and cap, and to go from there.

Still flashes today, sometimes the flashing stops, however the car drives fine. Should I be expecting...

Some people say it doesn't. Just wondering if anyone has any input? I have purchased both the cheap one as well as a behr...

Thanks. The fluid is good. Haven't issues shifting all week, so I think it is a solenoid in the tranny. As fas as the axles go, I think I will need two new front ones. A shop quoted me 530.00 for everything. Thinking I might go ahead and do that. Thanks for the help guys.
