Re: Is this "limp mode"? What's going on?

So, your problem is going to be different, because you don't have sunroof drains. that leaves AC drains, and maybe the drain under the hood. Youtube has videos on those repairs. PS, you didn't give your vehicle info, so its hard to image what commonalities you might have. my XS90 05 2.5T, had the sa...

Re: How to replace lower motor mount?

Bump, I just wanted to add my 2 cents to this thread. While replace the "rear Hydraulic mount" I found it imperative I had to use a 1/4 drive extension to get past the sway bar. with a 14mm socket.

Re: 08 XC90 Brake caliper torx bolts

My O5 XC90 uses Torx 55. I would have appreciated it if had been allen (hex), it would have saved me a trip to the Menards.Then after that trip, It wasnt' the bolts that I needed to take off. There was a 14mm that was what I needed. (more for the random googler, like me, that was looking for this in...
