Re: Oil leakage

I'm needing to do crank & cam seals myself & certainly hope I don't end up with one like yours, but that appears to be the seam between your oil pan and the bottom of the block. Which, from reading isn't a terribly uncommon leak to encounter. Apparently the various o-rings get brittle over time & ca...

Re: 1999 V70T5M56 right front wheel bearing

Interesting those used E-torx. How long ago was the drivers front done? Only reason I ask is I just did front wheel bearings on the 06 I just sold. Prior to replacing both, I spent about 2-300 miles of diagnosing it as the front drivers side being failed. Seemed plausible as you spend more time turn...

Re: Got a "new" volvo and I am very disappointed

The ring VTL was talking about is on the outer CV joint on your CV axles. It spins just inside the knuckle & the hall sensor that is supposed to pick up its rate of spin is directly above it, protruding through the top of the knuckle, it’s a wheel speed sensor, basically. You don’t even need to take...

Re: Sub-woofer install Question

Do you have 3rd row seating? If not, look in your boot under the floor boards. Supposedly (some (and by some, I'm guessing non-3rd row variants)) 01-04's came prewired for the factory subwoofer Volvo offered. I checked our non-3rd row 06 XC70 before I sold it & it had no prewiring. This parallels wh...

Agreed on both points. I had an 04 V70 R auto and loved it.
There's a Silver/Nordkap 5sp auto that just came up for sale locally. Can't believe it hasn't been taken yet. $4,500 asking. Something looks funny with that front right fender though.

Re: Mmmm, Atacama.... (2005 V70R M66 on BAT $12k and rising MN)

This was listed up here a year ago for $16.9k. It took a little while, but it did sell. Looks like it'll fetch that and maybe more this time around. Beautiful, but I think I'd prefer one that was born with an M66. Although I would not hesitate on an 06-07 with the 6 speed auto. Some nice commentary ...

Re: Another Solution for P2 Inside Door Handle breaking

I have removed the inner door cover many times upgrading my door speakers and then replacing one when it failed. I can see that it might be possible to move the cover away leaving the cable attached but it might put pressure on the 'fix' and break it. The panel would be more likely to be damaged wh...

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

Not wasting, just use it in your 2-cycle engines :lol: I think most would agree that the 7,500 mile OCI Volvo calls for is pretty much double what these engines should really be seeing. I buy oil when it’s on sale & mail in rebates are available. Another way to save money is to run 15-40 in summer t...

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

To me 5k is too long. I’d shoot for 3-4K tops even though yours is NA. Synthetic of course. 10k for ATF is great.

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

Not overkill, but I’d tighten up that OCI.
