Re: '98 V70 Serpentine Belt Tensioner Shredding Timing Cover?

- Use INA pulleys only. - The TB cover might have been installed incorrectly, the cover has tabs that need to be in the correct holes (shown in your photos). Throw away that Meyle thing (along with other Meyle parts installed). As above, Ina or Volvo, same for the timing belt, Gates Ina or Volvo. H...

Re: S60 ignition coils

Spark plugs also only Volvo ones

Re: AWD best in reverse? 2003 V70 2.5T AWD

I remember driving a RWD back in the days, when I couldn't climb a hill, I would get a better chance climbing in reverse. Without having been there, I'd place a bet on a combination of rear tires with more thread/less wear and, as already mentioned, a less slippery surface when you went backwards. Y...

Re: Old School Mechanic Please

Try to detail the problem here, you may find someone who had a similar issue, but it is true that for many problems (such as an engine stall) it is really hard to figure out from a distance. May also look on local.google.com for a knowledgeable independent Volvo mechanic, the site has user rating. L...

Re: 06 XC70 brake lifespan?

I tend to agree 20000 miles is suspect when it comes to the disks - although it doesn't sound like the disk is completely worn from Neil's description (just my interpretation). I also know the garages are very willing to replace the disks, with many saying new pads requires new disks (which, of cour...

Re: 06 XC70 brake lifespan?

As above, did the dealer also remove and clean the caliper sliding pins and use the correct Volvo grease? It is important, along with - at this mileage - replacing the brake fluid. Remember that bringing an old car to the main dealer is expensive not only because of the parts, but also because they ...
