Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

Nice! That master cylinder is a ton of fun to install... Did you decide on yanking the whole thing out the top or dropping the trans from underneath? Yanking the whole thing out the top. I dropped my Escape's out the bottom of the car using an engine support bar, but with the addition of having to ...

Took it to Swedish Imports and they diagnosed it as a bad axle seal. $260 later it was still peeing fluid on the ground and the flashing arrow o...

Re: 2003 S70 seat leather question (Pass to driver skin swap)

I've got a 2000 S70 passenger seat skin on my 1998 drivers seat. No problems, one hole on the outer bolster from where the lumbar knob should be but it doesn't bother me.
