Correct Removal of Driver Side Door Handle Blank Out Buttons?

On my 1991 Volvo 940 Turbo, I'm having a beast of a time removing one of the driver's side door handle "blank buttons" so I can get something out behind the A pillar trim. It's very loose and I can see the white clip and solitary screw holding it on, but it just won't budge, hard as I dare pry. Are ...

Re: Idle Issues The Same Before and After Fuel Pump/Filter Installed

Thanks for all the thoughtful input, everyone. Just to clarify, since I bought the 940, I have only been doing preventative and baseline maintenance. I haven't had the chance to drive it any more than on and off the trailer when I brought it home. So it was definitely a pig in the poke. Anyway, I to...

Idle Issues The Same Before and After Fuel Pump/Filter Installed

Just to start from the top, I've got a 1991 Volvo 940 with the B230FT. I just got done replacing the fuel filter and feed pump, some other deferred maintenance. It now starts to start on the first crank, instead of the 2nd, and idles more smoothly. I went through and manually confirmed no obvious va...

How do I loosen the power steering belt on a 1991 Volvo 940?

I'm working on replacing the water pump on my 940. The only bolt I located that appears to be for adjustment is a 13mm above the pump with a threaded shaft on the other side. The worthless Chilton that came with has no useful information and I'm unable to find anything online. Are there any pictures...

Re: How to reattach carpeted door panel insert on 1991 Volvo 940?

That's the right idea, but not the exact same part. I know I probably should do it, but I'm thinking I might pry out the white anchor tabs, attach them to the grooves in the plastic backing of the carpet insert and push the whole thing into place.

How to reattach carpeted door panel insert on 1991 Volvo 940?

I have a 1991 Volvo 940 and a donor 1994 960. After nearly completing a successful door panel swap, I ran into a problem. Although I was able to remove it, I mean having difficulty getting the carpeted door panel insert to connect on all 3 white tabs. Specifically, it's the tab nearest to the rear o...

Input Regarding Buying a Pair of Volvos: 940 and 960

Hey everyone, it's been a while since I logged in last. A couple years ago I had to sell my 244 to a great new owner due to life circumstances. I'm finally at a point again where I can consider getting back on the Volvo for life bandwagon. I'm not sure if many of you are familiar with North Dakota, ...

Re: 1988 Volvo 244 Starter Grinding in the Morning

Thanks for the input, mtd! Your suggestion confirms my suspicion. I will have to pull the starter and have a look-see. Maybe brush up on the FAQs for replacing a starter on the 240. I'm moving it to storage for the winter and unfortunately, the cold seems to only exacerbate the problem, so I'll have...

1988 Volvo 244 Starter Grinding in the Morning

Hey guys, my 244 has been a dead reliable commuter for me the past 6 months of ownership, so I'm really enjoying it. Recently, though, a problem has developed. If I park my Volvo outside and it's cool in the morning, the starter will briefly grind at the end of the starting process, no matter how qu...
