Re: FCP Summer sale 7/22 - 7/26

and those who do return things (they lose money). I bought this car as a temporary vehicle until I found a V70R. But I've put so many FCP parts on it that I want to keep the car in order to claim the warranties. So far I've only returned two oil and filters. I am oddly eager for my brake calipers t...

Same, here in NC they barely even look at anything for inspections.
Luckily my 96 only needs safety inspections now in Texas. No more emissions testing.

Re: Fix a Volvo flip/switchblade key - DIY, pics and advice

It takes a lot of time and patience. Once the halves are separated you will see how much plastic is holding onto the capsule. I took a sharp box cutter and scraped away plastic one layer at a time.
