Re: Had new tires put on my 03 XC70. Now it's swaying down the road.

Took it to a mechanic who test drove it and said it needs shocks and struts, cost $1900. Please don't fall for this. Please don't fall for salesmen. They just want to make money and sell their salad. I stopped long ago to listen mechanics blindly First thing, make sure you have a decent 35psi of pr...

Re: How do I counterhold IPD Hd endlinks Topic is solved

The lower nut won't come off because it has a tiny T25 torx, the torx bit will shear well before the nut will start turning. As above, dremel/grinder and off it comes. The upper nut may work with the torx (If replacing only struts) - it has bigger torx T40 but it won't be easy - one small trick is t...

Re: Rear Quarter Window Replacement

It is a good start to do it first at the junk yard - no stress and can repeat it several times for trickier jobs

Re: Question about IPD control arms?

I really wish to know the answer as well. I pressed in genuine Lemforder bushings - the small rear ones, and it got very soft in less than 1 year. Now, those were individually sold and 'might' be different than the ones Lemforder puts in their full control arms. As for the Ipd HD it may be too soon ...

Re: 05' V70, almost dead battery, alarm going off, what to do? Topic is solved

If the battery was flat, unlocking the door with the key has set the alarm. The alarm system will detect if one door is opened while the car battery is disconnected or flat, and will trigger the siren. For how long was the car parked ? If you happen to park it for longer periods (2-3 weeks or more),...

Re: questions about estimate for broken front coil spring

The quick struts seem to have some negative reviews Do you really want to replace the struts as well ? If they ride fine on your roads, I wouldn't touch them. I would recommend replacing all old springs. Here's are the replacement springs - just find the correct ones https://www.fcpeuro.com/products...

Re: What did you put off doing to your P2 Volvo today....... Now Sticky!

Very windy in Montreal as well, almost seen snowflakes. Was driving inside the city and all of a sudden one of these large recycling bins on wheels run across the street like nobody's business - too bad I didn't had a camera https://www.ctvnews.ca/polopoly_fs/1.4161638.1541204139!/httpImage/image.jp...

Maybe not missing parts, just the spring seat has completely failed This is a cracked but not completely failed one www.youtube.com/watch?v=kj4JmZS2yM4 Use only Sachs or Rein/CRP spring seat - can order from a local store (autolectra.com sells these in Montreal), or from Eeuroparts - they have a shi...
