Re: alternator pulley Topic is solved

My guess is the Volvo shop installed the "X" and not "N". In other words, BOSCH AL0805___ is available as BOSCH AL0805 N and BOSCH AL0805 X . "N" is new with new VR, Nachi or NTN bearing. "X" is usually rebuilt in a very cost-cutting approach (Chinese VR, Chinese bearing etc.). I guess, Volvo put X...

Re: alternator pulley Topic is solved

vtl , - I used to rebuild my BMW, Volvo Bosch alternators all the time, so very familiar with it. I used only Bosch Voltage Regulator, Nachi bearing etc. - However, pricing for Genuine Bosch alternators have come down and very competitive. For ex, the BOSCH AL0805N is about $240 (serach ebay and yo...

Re: alternator pulley Topic is solved

- My 2007 V70 with 104K runs fine, zero issues, but I am wondering... - Does anyone know the lifespan of alternator decoupler pulley? - How do you diagnose a bad alternator decoupler pulley? Volvo alternator rule of thumb: 10 years since manufactured - rebuild yourself. Good quality bearings, volta...

Re: Adding myself A/C anyone is good at this?

Read evaporator and cabin temperatures, they are available via VIDA/DiCE. It also can show a pressure on high side. That way you can actually see the icing: pressure is high, evap temp is high too. A/C compressor kicks in when evaporator temperature reaches 7 degrees Celsius.

Re: Looking for a trustworthy shop in MA that doesn't jerk around girls

First place (in Ashland) is not a tire shop, they even build dirt karts - welding the frame, rebuild engines, transmissions - and go to competitions.

I did an engine+ tranny swap over weekend in my small garage, why "friend won't cut it"? ;)

Other great guy, who I know, literally lives in his shop, he does car repairs at least 18 hours a day :) He's a bit closer to you: 16 Park Avenue in Arlington. Getting in and out can pose a risk of scratching a bumper, but still manageable ;)

Re: Looking for a trustworthy shop in MA that doesn't jerk around girls

I can recommend Jeff: http://a-1automotiveservice.com/ They are a great bunch of old school autotech guys, the ones who love cars and love talking to right customers. Don't do repairs there (everything is DIY), just new tires mounting, wheel balancing and alignment. Whatever I mumble, Jeff listens t...

Re: Purchase 01 XC70 AWD?

Buy it. First: drain the ATF and replace with Amsoil Signature Series ATF. Drive it a few weeks then do it again. Amsoil ATF solved all my trans issues, the same issues that inspired other Volvo owners to replace their transmissions. I would never use Amsoil ATF again in this transmission, it has w...
