Re: V70 T5 radiator replacement - removal from top

I also will be working alone and It sounds like you were ...

looking at getting a 2010 V50 160,000 miles

Good Evening, I'm looking at buying a 2010 V50 that has 160000 miles on it and am wondering if there are any key issues that I might look out for when I test drive / inspect it. I've had 850's and v70's and am hoping that the feel of the car will be similar. I think it looks good and just want to be...

Is it possible to swap 1997 850 15' wheels on to a 2010 v50 w 17" wheels ?

Hello everyone, I currently have a 2003 V70 that I was able to swap the 15" wheels from my prior 1997 850 wagon for a smoother ride with less expensive tires. I am considering getting a 2010 V50 2.41 (non AWD) wagon. It has 17" wheels and I am wondering if the 15" wheels that I have would fit. I am ...

Re: 2003 V70 24T How to stop leak in AC Receiver/Drier?

Yes, I looked under the hood and those are the rivets! It does look like it is pretty simple to remove the bumper. Oddly, when the dealer was giving me the quote, the phrase "we have to remove the bumper" was said like it would be time consuming and arduous task, kind of like unbolting part of the f...

Re: 2003 V70 24T How to stop leak in AC Receiver/Drier?

VTL, are those rivets the type that has the little button in the middle that lets them release?

That does look like a snap! I might take it off just to clean any debris that might be there.

Re: 2003 V70 24T How to stop leak in AC Receiver/Drier?

Hi abscate, The number of the part is 6848898 0 for the pipe. It what the bolt goes into. They also ordered an o ring for the upper connection. I figure that the o ring that I just got is still going to be fine for the bottom. Volvo does say they would need to remove the bumper, and I know that the ...

Re: 2003 V70 24T How to stop leak in AC Receiver/Drier?

I did go to Volvo to get the evacuation and recharge and when they gave the car back the air wasn’t any better. I returned it to them and they kept it overnight and gave me a loaner. I just called and they say that the pipe going to the receiver drier needs to be replaced , but will call me back onc...

Re: 2003 V70 24T How to stop leak in AC Receiver/Drier?

The first few days that I was driving I noticed that the air cooled for a while and then didn’t seem to hold. The days were in the mid and high nineties and when the car was first driven, or driven after a few hours parked, the air worked, but going somewhere, dining or shopping and then returning, ...

Re: 2003 V70 24T How to stop leak in AC Receiver/Drier?

I didn't use a vacuum on it. I missed that step. Would the oil go in the same port as the 134a? How important is it to pull everything out? Would this be something that should be done at a shop? I see that the Volvo dealer has a current special that would evacuate and recharge, as well as check for ...
