Re: 2005 S60 2.5T AWD: Radiator replacement

You may want to try this place for your online part shopping. http://www.germanautoparts.com/ They have some of the same part manufactures as IPD and FCP at better prices. They are growing the list of available Volvo parts over time. I own a 1998 VW Jetta and this place helps to keep it alive at 280...

Rear Sway Bar Retro Fit?

My questions concerns my 2001 v70 2.4l. Auto trans. non turbo front wheel drive. My vehicle does not come with the OEM rear sway bar. 1.Can I mount a S60 rear sway bar to my car or are the mounting points or other components going to prevent this? 2.If this is possible, then would it provide any rea...

Re: 2001 V70 XC - Rear Brakes Lights Do Not Come On Topic is solved

This sounds a lot like the dreaded rear brake relay upgrade to me. The relay for the rear brake lights required an upgrade from the original . The original was a one piece relay and the replacements are 2 piece. The part number is 8651661. RMI5 is the placement. You will need to order 2 of them. One...

Re: 2001 v70 2.4T Intermittent "Turn Signal Bulb Out"

Recall, yes I must have been watching a GM commercial. It is documented in a service bulletin for 2001 volvo's. I can't recall the number but the replacemnt part number is 8651661. You will need 2 as you are replacing a 1 piece relay with 2 separate ones. I can't remember which relay it was that I p...

Re: 2001 v70 2.4T Intermittent "Turn Signal Bulb Out"

What rubbersidedown said is very true. My drivers front socket was failing and causing this last winter, but in the spring after I had replaced that socket the problem returned. After some in depth research I had found the relays in the rear fuse box module or REM had been recalled and not been upgr...

Re: 2006 XC70 Evap pump replacement process

This is a very well documented repair and I would nominate this for a link in the major repairs if I had any pull on this forum. This is almost complete, except to include the j hose,evap valve, & evap canister which are attached to the other end of the hoses you have pictured there. I must admit ho...

Re: 2005 S60 2.5T Check Engine Light Code P0402

I have had this code on my 2001 V70 and it was intermittant. This code can be due to the gas vapor canister j hose being cracked and leaking. The hose is rubber and even if you don't have a higher milage car, rubber ages dries out cracks up and leaks. It is a short hose about a foot long and I am su...

Re: 2001 v70 xc - help with brake light switch.

I do think there is a service bulletin Recall Campaign No.131 on replacing the relay for the rear brake light relay with 2 relays for each light. It may cover your model 2001-2002 v70 and xc70's. I had some rear brake light issues that would come and go like gremlins until I replaced the rear brake ...

Re: 2004 V70 Alternator cost and do I have to use a Volvo

I have a 2001 v70 and recently had a failure with the overvoltage message and red battery light. Battery died and needed a complete charge overnight on my charger and voltage was droppping and rising from the alternator. Researched all alternatives and found voltage regulator available at www.german...
