Re: OEM Exhaust rusted after four years. Recommendations?

From the photos, it looks as if you started with galvanized steel with ungalvanized (obviously) welds that burned off the galvanization in the areas adjacent to the welds. That's how it came from Volvo. The pipes and welds rusted, as did the inside metal grate of the final muffler. Seems like terri...

Re: Which website sells Volvo clips, bolts, and other tiny parts?

In this instance, I'm trying to replace the U nuts and screws which hold the cooling fan to the radiator. My local hardware stores have large inventories from Midwest Fasteners . These easily help me find most parts, but not these. So I tried the very comprehensive McMaster-Carr . I think I found th...

Re: Which website sells Volvo clips, bolts, and other tiny parts?

For my 2002 Mercedes, there's a parts website like Volvo Parts Web Store with full diagrams and obscure parts. But they never have the nuts, bolts, fasteners, and other tiny parts available. But the dealership can get them. That's why I wonder if Volvo is the same, that the parts are still out there...

Which website sells Volvo clips, bolts, and other tiny parts?

Hello, each time I work on my 2000 V70, I have to remove rusty clips, bolts, and other tiny parts. I'd love to buy replacements, but they aren't available at even the most comprehensive online parts store - Volvo Parts Web Store . I can try a dealership, but that's tedious. Which website has parts d...

Re: H7 (Low Beam) replacement bulb?

I bought Philips H7 Vision for my 2000 V70. I swear the low beams are much dimmer than the OEM Volvo blubs. My battery is fully charged, my grounding wires are good. Still, I find it really hard to see with my low beams on. I will be paying more for premium bulbs or maybe even OEM in the future.

Re: No start, no crank, no click. Engine ground failure.

But are the cable ends too corroded, thus needing replacement?

Re: No start, no crank, no click. Engine ground failure.

What do you all think about the ends of my negative battery terminal? They have some corrosion in the wires and rust where they connect. But they feel solid when I press on them. Are these bad enough for me to proactively replace the cable?

Re: No start, no crank, no click. Engine ground failure.

The grounding straps at the back of the engine are my problem. When I removed my center strap for measurement, it crumbled in my hands. Replacing these grounding straps is good preventative maintenance on these 20 year old cars. The braided copper ground straps at the back of the engine are part # 9...

Re: B+ terminal repair - main fuse box

I'd like to inspect my B+ cable end inside the fuse box. However, I can't pull it up off the post. I assume it's held at the bottom of the fuse box using a grommet. What's the trick to lifting it up for inspection?
