Re: [2001 V70 2.4T] Parking brake shoe size?

I just searched advanceautoparts for you and came up with 2 different sizes but the same fitment details: 2001 Volvo V70 (2.4L 2435CC L5 FI Turbo VIN: B5244T3) Yup, that's what I already did (except at AutoZone.com), which is why I was bringing the issue to the forum for advice. I would remove the ...

[2001 V70 2.4T] Parking brake shoe size?

I'm looking to replace the parking brake shoes in my '01 V70, and local sources list two different sizes, both which it says are compatible with my car: - 0.98 x 6.3" - 0.99 x 7.09" From what I understand, the second number is the diameter of the parking brake drum. I measured mine as 7". Would eith...

Re: [2001 V70 2.4T] Oscillating humming noise when driving

Remember to crack the axle nut while the car is still on the ground. Fascinating, this is the third different way I've seen to remove the axle bolt. The other two were: - VIDA method, use a screwdriver in the brake rotor as a counterhold. - 1A Auto instructional video, remove brake rotor, but reins...

I have the procedure from VIDA. This is my first time working with the hub and axle. An...

Re: Drain/relieve fuel prior fuel filter change? Topic is solved

This procedure is recommended in VIDA when replacing the fuel filter. Here's Volvo's specific wording which is very slightly different from the above, in that they say to start the engine before removing the fuse: Start the engine. Remove the fuel pump fuse. Placement may vary between engine types a...

Re: [2001 V70 2.4T] Oscillating humming noise when driving

It makes sense that the front left bearing would be the first to go, what with all the right turns, and the fact that the driver is usually the only passenger in this car except on family trips with long highway drives.

Re: [2001 V70 2.4T] Oscillating humming noise when driving

That’s the right one. You replace it as a unit, correct, the bearing does not come out separately. If it’s noisy on RIGHT turn, it s the LEFT bearing that’s bad. Should I replace both the left and right hubs, or just the side that seems to be worse? Just wondering if it's one of those things that s...

Re: [2001 V70 2.4T] Oscillating humming noise when driving

The noise seems to increase when I turn to the right, so I guess that would point to the right front bearing? The car has 254,000 miles on it at present. I have owned it since 189,000 miles, and I know that nothing in the wheel hub assemblies has been serviced during that time. My thought is to repl...

[2001 V70 2.4T] Oscillating humming noise when driving

Whenever I'm driving, I hear an oscillating humming noise that varies in frequency based on wheel speed, and varies in amplitude based on force on the wheels. For example, at highway speeds going straight, the noise is higher frequency but low amplitude; but if we were to go over a bump, as the chas...

Re: POLL What octane gas is everyone using?

I use 87 in my '01 V70 2.4T, as per the minimum requirement listed in the owner's manual, rather than 91 which is recommended for "optimum performance." So I guess I can assume that my engine is not currently running at "optimum performance." Fuel requirements Octane rating Volvo engines are designe...
