Re: 850 Odometer Fix

You might want to swap out the large light bulbs while you are in there. I used a drill with about 1/4 inch thick of masking tape wrapped around a wooden pencil. It took me at least 1 hour to go 30K miles. The rubber eraser doesn't work as the rubber crumbles and mucks up the gears. The drill runs i...

Re: 1995 850T oil cooler lines - dummy

I see what I did wrong :o I was trying to get at the 10mm bolt from straight up. I need to slide my creeper to the driver's side more and go in at an angle. What a pain. I guess I'm getting too old for this kind of workout. Working upside down and backwards leaves a lot to be desired. Especially whe...

Re: 850 Odometer Fix

Been there, done that. I prefer lifting the entire dash so I don't have a problem with the fitting at the right side of the center console. There are a lot of steps, but none very difficult. You will need some small torx tools, a T10 and T8? First, get the correct odometer reading from the instrumen...

1995 850T oil cooler lines

The top oil cooler line started leaking so I ordered OE lines. I have replaced the same lines on a 1998 V70R, so I figured an afternoon of cursing would be enough to keep oil off the garage floor. It took an hour to get the stupid 10mm bolt out that holds the lines to the block. That is when I reali...

Re: Using the engine to dry the carpet after heater core replacement.

If you lived in Arizona, it would dry in a day. But in FL, where the humidity is 90-95%, it will take forever to dry. The rear carpet will also have to be removed, washed and dried. But I would wait until after the rain stops, in about 4 days. Meanwhile, get a full tank of gas, pack up the family an...

Re: Strut

Either a spring failed or the top strut mount broke. Open the hood to check the latter. But, considering the age of the car, I would lean towards a broken spring. If this is the case, you will need new springs on both sides.

Re: 1998 v70xc - CEL, EFI-436, driving fine . . .

The 'air leak' has to be between the intake manifold and the air mass meter. It has nothing to do with air pressure in the engine (PCV) or the breather box. It is easy enough to check for air leaks. Check all of the small vacuum lines that go to the intake manifold, especially the small one next to ...

Re: Quick Q regarding SIPS airbags Topic is solved

Easy swap. The outside seat rail, where the seatbelt attaches, can be unbolted from the 850 seat and mounted on the S/V70 seat. 15 minute operation, making sure that the fore/aft position is the same.

850 seat skin replacement

I am just wondering if anyone tried to replace 850 seat skins with some from a newer Volvo, like a 2005 V70 or from an S80? I replaced the 1995 seat with a 1998 seat, but the seat bottom is getting thin. I would love to replace the entire seat, realizing that the side air bag would not deploy. The P...

Re: 96 850GLT dash vents ECC

And this: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=60660

Without knowing what the codes are, you are not going to fix it.
And it is pin 6, not 5, that is for the ECC.
