Re: Non Scented A/C cleaning method?

I shampooed the carpets - steamed the leather seats - then treated them. Yes I know - probably not the best idea for longevity but there was some stubborn grime to tackle. Yesterday I ran my friends ozone machine in it with the air cranked and the windows closed, and for the time being it smells lik...

Re: 1996 850R Single Dim Radio

If you order the head from Crutchfield, they generally include the model specific harness adapter and 1U pocket for free. Just installed a 1U Pioneer MVH-X390BT in my 2000 V70XC in all of 15 min. Very nice helpful people there too.

Re: Non Scented A/C cleaning method?

The 10:1 water bleach mix sprayed down into the fresh air intake worked perfectly for the moldy lollipop smell - thanks for the pointer. It did take a bit longer than an hour of running the air to get rid of all bleach smells (mostly in the first minute of running the air) but after two weeks its pr...

Re: Non Scented A/C cleaning method?

Thanks abscate and oragex ! Very helpful. I should have added that I have already replaced the cabin air filter and cleaned the vents as far into the dash as I could get without totally dismantling.

Non Scented A/C cleaning method?

Cranked up the A/C for the first time on my recently purchased V70XC and, although it works well, the smell coming from it nearly defies description. Its something along the lines of rancid lollipop crossed with mold. Of course there are several AC cleaning products at the Auto Zone but I have found...

Another post about sticky buttons - with a solution

So I felt that it was about time to post about this since I have now restored the buttons on two older Volvos - a '98 S70 and now my 2000 V70XC. Like many others, I wasted time scouring the web for a solution, tried the various things proposed (rubbing alcohol, armor all etc) all with little result....

Re: Short bursts of washboard vibration on highway V70 XC

Overdue follow up for anyone in a google hole. This turned out to be a failing center bearing. Will be buying a new shaft from Colorado Drive Shaft but for now the issue is minimal. I was surprised though that after so much fruitless googling about "intermittent washboard" issues, if you google fail...

Re: Short bursts of washboard vibration on highway V70 XC

Just wanted to post a follow up for the sake of possible usefulness. Four new tires didn't fix the problem. I was lucky enough to go for a very long drive with my mechanic who said that he believed the sound was indeed either the driveshaft or the angle gear but that it was so infrequent that it was...
