04 xc70 steering rack issues

Hi All, I am thinking I need to replace the rack (not sure if it is the varialble assist type or not). It leaks pretty badly and It also clunks and has play. Can someone recommend a reliable source for a used or reman rack? Around here the salvage yards generally aren't too conscientious. Thanks in ...

Re: Sachs front struts 2004 Volvo xc70

Thanks for the feedback. I'm going with Billsteins probably.
That's accurate. Highway and rolling hills are good, but on bumpy roads at moderate speeds they are not that good.

Sachs front struts 2004 Volvo xc70

After replacing the front struts with new oe Sachs struts from fcp euro and installing them with all new hardware and reinforced ipd strut bushings I am feeling disappointed with the performance. Over speed bumps on the way down the struts will go all the way to the bump stops and although better th...

Re: Difference between Sachs and OEM struts?

I bought a pair of oe Sachs for my v70 and now for my 2004 xc70. The ones for the v70 are both leaking and I feel the ones for the xc70 are spongy. I bought from fcp euro and didn't pay attention to the sticker color. I'm going to go check b.c I have a new one in the box on warranty from fcp ready t...

Linkage near heater core

Everything was going fine replacing my heater core until I broke the linkage that is up behind the two pipes coming into the heater core. I believe this linkage is associated with the vents or the heating system. Any ideas on how to replace or repair them?
Thanks in advance,

CEL codes P2407 and P0455

After fueling up one snowy night in March, the CEL lit up and has been since. I got codes 2407 and 0455 which indicate the leak detection pump circuit intermittent/erratic and major leak respectively. My gas cap seal is all cracked up. Any ideas? Thanks for the continued help.

2004 xc70 front struts

I was wondering if anybody can tell me how the XC70 has a higher ride height than the regular V70. Are the struts longer or something else with the suspension? I would like to lower my XC70 so that it has the same ride height as the regular V70 and I was hoping to swap out the struts. Can somebody p...

Re: Transmission issues

Thanks for all the advice. I bought a 2004 xc70 turbo all wheel drive with 160K. It shifts really nice bur the tranny fluid was on the dirty side (didn't smell burnt, just a bit dirty). I liked the car and I need a car to get back to work, so I bought it and am keeping my fingers crossed. Plan on re...
