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: 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...

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.

Stop by an auto parts store and ask to use theirs. Most chains let you do it for free.

Re: OEM Tool kit screwdriver: Why?

There are no flat screws in the 850/s70 and only 1 Phillips head on the entire 850's, none on the S70's. Why would you think that a pin has a function?

Re: Brake switch

Words are free. Use more of them.
There are no 1999 850's.
