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

That looks great! Did you use any solvent to clean up the trim? Thanks! After scraping I did some light sanding with sandpaper and a Dremel sanding drum where needed. Then I cleaned up the flakes and dust with a shopvac followed by a dusting with a rag with isopropyl alcohol to give the tape the be...

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

I thought about attempting a similar project. But my idea was to tape off the area around the rails and spray it with generic flex seal (rubberized coating).Thinking one to two light, even coats will leave it looking pretty close to original. I considered that option, too. Some have suggested using...

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

My wagon has never been garaged, and 21+ years of weather has taken its toll on the roof moldings, which were peeling. My wagon is a flat-top without a roof rack, so the moldings get full effect of the weather. I found replacement moldings in the Genuine Classic Parts (Sweden) catalog, the price was...

Re: Volvo Announces Free Towing for Life on All Its Cars of Every Age

Vehicles will be towed to the nearest Volvo dealer for repair.
I have a 21 year old car that Volvo doesn't even sell many parts for any more. What could possibly go wrong?

Re: Any clever tip to fix the trim panel under the steering wheel on an S70?

Mine has been broken too many times to count. When I last removed it to get better clearance to replace the clutch and brake pedal covers (for the second time), I discovered that it had been stuck up with Volvo Magic Black Goo (comes in rolls, I think it's called body seam filler or something.) So I...

Re: Driver door speaker cutting out intermittently

My 2 front door speakers were cutting in and out intermittently. Both of them, leading to my confusion. It wasn't the radio or the wiring, it was the 2 front speakers. 20 years was about it for them. If you have another speaker around, suggest testing with it. https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forum...

Re: GCP Genuine Classic Parts Volvo Original Parts (SE) Topic is solved

Update -- I went ahead and ordered from them and the parts -- unavailable in the US system -- arrived yesterday. Roughly a week -- which is about the same as from my usual online US Volvo parts dealer. Tracking the package, the FEDEX box spent most of the shipping time sitting in Koln Germany. The c...

Re: My Volvo Speaker says 4 ohm, why does everyone say 8 ohm?

On the V70: The 2 dash tweeters (3533623) are labeled 8 Ohm The 2 front door speakers (3533621 and 3533620) are 4 Ohm The 2 rear door speakers (3533622) are 8 Ohm The 2 rear D pillar speakers (9128772 and 9128773) are 8 Ohm It seems to me that using 4 Ohm replacement speakers for the rear doors woul...

Re: My Volvo Speaker says 4 ohm, why does everyone say 8 ohm?

Lee (thank you!) wrote up the "S70 speakers demystified" DIY https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=57976 and used 4 Ohmx 6 1/2 inch speakers in the rear doors so I'll consider this evidence that the change works. The factory PN 3533622 rear door speakers are NLA from Volvo so...

Thanks for the quick response! But in the DIY, https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=57976 "S70 speakers demystified", Lee used Blaupunkt GTx 803 SC 8-inch speakers (which according to specs are 4 Ohm) for the rear deck, and used Kenwood KFC-G1620 6 1/2 inch 4 Ohm speakers fo...
