Re: Awesome laptops for VIDA (and general use)

Just set a different friend up with the M6800 17" i7-4800QM 16GB/Quadro K3100/SSD for ~$350. Powerhouse laptop for the price. Seller was turning 5 identical machines from some corporate.

Re: 2004 V70 2.5T PCV Elbow (at Oil Trap): 30677388 ($68) vs 1271653 ($12)

Does anybody have experience with the IPD version of the 'larger' hose (for $30-something)? Silicone-Nitrile impregnated rubber should last practically forever if it's done right and might even be reusable if it doesn't harden. I'm looking at that should my '06 2.5T use the larger diameter hose ther...

Re: The How "Volvo" is your area? Fun poll

Oh my. Somebody in town picked up a ≥2011 SAFFRON C30. Passed it on highway 6 (location hint) just outside town a few weeks ago. Seeing it a second time parked in town basically confirms somebody local picked up themselves a beautiful bouncing baby Volvo :D :D :D That is one gorgeous C30. Whoever yo...

Re: Behr Hella 1/4 twist style radiator drain plug, replacement Not availlable

The picture of the hole in his radiator clearly isn't threaded. But I'm starting to wonder if that picture is of the exact radiator in his car. You wouldn't be willing to confirm whether that picture showing a radiator in post #1 is your currently installed radiator, your old radiator, or a picture ...

Re: radiator drain plug

Looks like Chrysler/Dodge has been using Behr-Hella for some of their OE radiators since the mid-90s through at least 2012-2013 that use this style twist-lock petcock. The design appears specific to Behr radiators. However, the Chrysler replacement part, though close, I can tell from pictures has sl...

Re: radiator drain plug

Valeo is original equipment. The Behr radiator is an aftermarket replacement product. Their petcock design is different than OE/Valeo. I see zero in Behrhella's catalog indicating they sell their petcocks separately from a new radiator. Nor can I find anywhere in their catalog or documents stating t...

Re: Awesome laptops for VIDA (and general use)

If they made those Dells with a touchscreen I'd probably be after one for myself. For websurfing I can't seem to live without it so I'll be hanging on to the Samsung NP680 TFN unless it dies. The samsung lappys aren't known for longevity like the true mobile workstations usually are. The speaker/hea...

Awesome laptops for VIDA (and general use)

Dell M4600/M4700 & M6700 M6800 mobile workstations (fancy name for a high spec durable build laptop). Seems to be a flood of these coming off lease to the used/refurbished market driving the resale prices down at the moment. Just set up two friends with examples of these, one friend got a M4700 15" ...

Re: 05 XC70 Front End Noise After Control Arm Replacement

The sound occurs only on hard breaking, hard reverse, and near maximum steering on occasion. In order of likelihood that's probably.. 1) upper strut mount/bearing 2) the upper spring seat 3) You reused the large strut to knuckle bolts, either they're not torqued tight enough or they're stretched an...

Re: 05 XC70 Front End Noise After Control Arm Replacement

You don't mess up the inner CV by merely overextending it during service. If it pushed back in and you're not feeling a shimmy through the chassis/steering wheel while driving it's fine. Loud metallic clunk, only over road 'imperfections', doesn't do it on freshly paved smooth pavement or when shift...
