Re: Need advise about 4C service Required Message

I own a 2005 V70R and had a leak on my front passenger side 4C shock so I replaced both fronts. After I got the service message i replaced both rears at 120K miles. I still get the same message. I figure the next step is to replace the electronic module. Are there any suggestions on what to do? Coul...

Re: Rear Shocks. Can't access upper mount bolts. Misaligned

I just did this 2 weekends ago on my 05 V70R. Undo the one bolt with the banana shape washer and take the whole unit out from the bottom. I followed the Robert DIY video and used the ratchet strap on it. Thank God you don't have the Monroe electronic suspension shocks. Getting at the passenger side ...

SRS-Airbag Service Urgent light after replacing passenger side window

I took the 2008 C30 to the dealer to have them replace the passenger side window that someone tried to break. After picking it up I noticed the SRS-Airbag Service Urgent light came on after few miles. I saw the dealer had made a note that they couldn't turn it off. Could replacing the window cause t...

Re: Coolant Hose Blew off Thermostat? 2009 XC90 3.2 AWD, 99k miles

It was a 2.4T. My daughter’s 2001 V70 kept blowing off the top radiator hose. The dealer did a pressure test on the cylinders and it turns out the cylinder was leaking through the head gasket into the coolant building up pressure and blowing the hose off. Kurt, was that engine a 2.5 or a 3.2?

Re: Purchasing a 2007 V70R

I bought a 2005 V70R in June 2018. It had 101K miles. I paid $7,100. After a week I had to replace the radiator so I had the timing belt, serpintine belt and water pump replaced. I replaced the control arms, the front 4C struts and the top motor mount myself. I have done 3 drain and fills to date. T...
