Re: 2008 xc90 V8 - slow start

Having some fun with this. Looked at replacement sleeve bearings. I don't like sleeve bearings, cheap for a reason, and if there's a needle bearing option available, its the one for me. Turns out there is. The measurements for the bearing are 8mm ID, 11mm OD and 10mm long. One end also needs a small...

Re: 2008 xc90 V8 - slow start

So, after a quick tear down of the old starter motor, here's how it appears to have failed: The starter is made up of a couple of components: 1.

2008 xc90 V8 - slow start

Hi all, My 2008 v8 xc90 is having some starting issues, and I can't quite figure it out. Turning the ignition to start the car produces very similar symptoms to a flat battery, with out the pro longed clicking a flat battery normal gives you. Some times its reliably slow to start, other times it sta...
