Re: Need rear trailing arm bushing procedure w/ photos Volvo 850

The threads on the actual trailing arm inboard, the long bolt that goes into the arm through the 3 bolt hole bushing housing.

Re: Need rear trailing arm bushing procedure w/ photos Volvo 850

What happens if a trailing arm gets stripped
Asking cuz i cant get it to tighten
On a Canadian 95 with 500,000km, suspect there is some rust/corrosion
I plan on dropping the rear and thread chasing, or new threads i guess?

Re: 96 yellow wagon t5r, ask price?

Indeed, the build date is 1995-07 so a 1996. Well. 1995 is what it is registered as
I have noticed them sell between 8-15k
But a wagon hasn’t sold in a while.
Guess not $30k, but it seems they should be worth more than $8

Re: 2005 XC90 P0304 and 305

Hooked threaded compression test device (with Schrader one way valve removed) applied (light) air pressure. Over 20 psi you will rotate the engine. Checked exhaust, intake, and oil ports. A few of the...

Re: 2005 XC90 P0304 and 305

Judging only by oem whom uses different metal (i dont have either to compare) on pictures on the net, for cylinder top sealing surface. If the head gasket is not one of the more important pieces. Hoping for someone who has experience with these heads and gaskets. Sometimes oem is not better, i doubt...
