Re: How do you prevent wheel/ tire theft?

The best method is to park in a secured garage or somewhere well lit and public. It's easy to get lug keys, or in some cases just forces keyed lugs off. If some one really wants your wheels, there really isn't much you can do about it if you park your car outside.

Re: Gauge to check fuel pressure on 1999V70

In a pinch, a 99 cent tire pressure gauge can be used (and then thrown away).

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

From a stop, it boosts to and holds 6 psi. Only spikes during kickdown from 4 to 3, weird. Neither side released. The pop I heard was the cable popping out of the latch. I'm going to practice technique on my T5 to prepare for round 2 next week. Considering the driver's side headlight was replaced as...

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

More bad news... popped out the turn signal and grabbed hold of the release cable. Gave it a gentle tug, heard a pop, hood still not open. Cable popped off the latch... :evil: I'm done with this for the weekend. Leave your suggestions, but I'm assuming at this point I'm breaking stuff to get it open.

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

Yeah I'm not really looking forward to it. Fortunately there's a fair bit of gap around the hood. And one turn signal is busted, so I don't feel too bad about ripping it out. What's the angle I need to go for on this one? For the turn signal, you'll just need to push down that tab and pull straight...

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

On a 1999, cruise is integrated into the ETM. If you recently cleared codes or disconnected the battery , you will need to drive it a bit before cruise is re-enabled Battery was dead when I bought it, and today was probably the first time it really completed a drive cycle. Will drive more and see i...

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

Took her on the highway after getting the Ariane wheels on. Ride was better than expected with wasted struts/shocks. Crossed my fingers for cruise control... and of course it doesn't work. Unfortunately this project ground to a halt today. As I reached down to pull the hood release, my hand was met ...

Re: Swedish car parts and Legacy manufacturing

Unfortunately, no matter how well you make plastic, after 20+ years of being out in the sun, heat, and cold it will break down. 3D printing is definitely an up and coming industry for vehicle restoration. Plastic parts are easy to remanufacture. Mechanical parts not so much, but I think we have at l...

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

One interesting observation I had while changing the tires: the shocks, struts, and springs looked surprisingly clean and still had all their paint, but the shocks and struts are definitely gone, way too bouncy and noisy, and rough ride. Also noticed the turbo looks very clean, so I will definitely ...

Re: 1999 S70 "AWD" Rescue Thread

Finally got the summer tires on, and of course it started pouring. Turned the light on to discover only one bulb behind the dash works. Also, when the headlights are on the turn signals blink more rapidly like a light is out, but all exterior lights are working. Played around with the ECC more. Got ...
