Re: Volvo Driveshafts

Last summer I changed the oil, noticed a bit of grease on the ground, didn't pay attention but now I see that the boot must have been torn for a while. No clicking from the joint so maybe a new boot would be good for now. Last time I tried to do a boot I made a mess of the joint trying to get it off...

Volvo Driveshafts

Raxles is no longer providing rebuilds for Volvos. Any suggestions for a good re-builder of Volvo cv joints.

I couldn’t break the top of the spring from it’s seat. Not sure why, but I ran out of time and put it back together

Re: 2008, c70, Coil spring broken (2)

Turns out that all four springs are broken. I did the front ones today, does anyone have guidelines for pulling the rears, I’ve never done rear coil springs before. Can’t seem to find any instructions on the web.

2008, c70, Coil spring broken (2)

I have a 2008 Volvo C70 that I recently brought to my independent mechanic for a four wheel alignment. They said they could not do the alignment because I have two broken springs, one in the front, and one in the rear. This vehicle has 50,000 miles, and I was surprised to have any broken springs, ne...

Re: 2000 S70, code 1550, after strut replacement

I checked the connections, and all looked good, and I do not believe that I stressed the wiring when I removed the sensors. I did the resistance check and got 2.6 M-ohms on both sensors, nowhere near the 900-1380 ohms mentioned above. Does it seem strange that both sensors would fail at the same tim...

During the repairs I removed the ABS wheel sensor but never unpluggged any connectors. Not sure what to check...

2000, S70 GLT SE, Brake Issue

I have what appeared to me to be similar to a master cylinder going bad. The pedal travel would sometimes change and be lower to the floor before I feel the brakes start working. Pump a bit and they grab where they normally do. The issue was intermittent, but eventually it became constant. The syste...
