Re: How leery would you be of 4C if the car otherwise checks out?

Basic rear coil spring + shock suspension does not last. It was not doing what I hoped it would do even when it was installed new. I take the car to longer semi-offroad trips, like from Boston to Trans-Taiga road in northern Quebec, 3500 mi, 900 mi is bad gravel - regular suspension didn't do it wel...

Mating headrest monitors with aftermarket player

So I bought a couple of nice stock RSE (rear seat entertainment) headrests with monitors from 2007 XC70 and put them into my 2005 XC70. I don't have the rest of RSE system, but have Kenwood 2DIN head unit with RCA video output. The monitors didn't turn on on their own, they are controlled by the DVD...

Re: How leery would you be of 4C if the car otherwise checks out?

I just replaced regular rear suspension that I replaced just 2 years ago (all original Volvo parts) with new Nivomats and regret I didn't do it earlier. What a pleasant ride I've got now!.. The tricky thing with these P2 Volvos is you can't really find a comparable replacement. Once you agree that "...

Re: Air bags didn’t deploy

When I had a side impact last November all airbags deployed on that side. Not others.

Deploying front airbag can actually kill you if safety belt does not keep you in place.

Re: Load rating for roof and roof rack

Roof weight limit is 100 kg. Static load (no road motion) is probably more, but you are on your own here.

Re: Front LCA Rear bush by Bilstein/Febi

Febi does not last. Lemforder has several levels of quality, look for part numbers with 1 at the end. I had Lemforders in LCA for quite a bit of miles (~35-40k), they were like new when I pulled them out for suspension refresh all around with Volvo parts. Meyle struts died in my V70 in like 6 months...

Re: 2002 V70 2.4T power steering leak

What hydraulic fluid you use? Original/Pentosin? Also when the last time it was changed? I remember PS was noisy on wife's now sold 02 V70. The car's steering system was filled with ATF instead of the right fluid. The noise went away as soon as I flushed the system with 2 liters of Pentosin CHF202. ...

Re: VVT hubs install / adjust

Nice DIY, thanks for sharing. That said, this job is not for me... only 50 easy steps :shock: It's not that bad, plus he sheds light on a few gotchas, so you don't have to spend time working around them. Critical question is tools. I'm not talking about camshaft locking and alignment tool, but good...

Re: Can I just take a moment to say "Wow"??

MY02 V70 were the most comfortable seats ever. MY05 XC70 are a bit more stiff, however they fit by wrecked spine better.

Re: VVT hubs install / adjust

The instructions in VIDA say <10 degree cam angle calibration is acceptable. At least it did two days ago when I did the very same check on my car. I read in VIDA 2011C for MY05 anything above 8 degrees VVT would not be able to compensate (bent valves). Full engine power is achievable with less tha...
