Re: odometer question (accuracy)

well that's a good place to look if and when I take it apart. Our roads suck, the struts were neglected for too long so it's something to look at. While I know everything breaks, odometergear bills their replacement as a permanent fix, which was why I asked. If someone else had their gears fail than...

Re: odometer question (accuracy)

I'm pretty sure but it's been 10 years that I replaced both gears back than.
So those gears from odometergears can break again?

odometer question (accuracy)

Long ago when I bought my volvo, I had to do the odometer gear repair. It has worked since more or less. I don't believe it is accurate though. I have to keep mileage for a job I do and if I switch between vehicles I notice a mileage discrepancy on the volvo. Sometimes but not always. example someti...

Re: Rust protection improvement

Regardless of brands used you want at least two different products. A thin oil to penetrate well, reach every corner inside the car and stop rust that had already started and then a thicker product to protect from mechanical wear. corossionX-hd has good creep factor, it will do both. It is used in ...

tail light issues

I keep having a bulb come loose in my one tail light assembly socket. I had this happen before and I replaced the whole assembly which worked for a while. I have tried pulling the tab up the bulb seats on. I have actually added solder to a bulb to give more contact. I have put dielectric grease on t...

Re: Rust protection improvement

I bought corrosionX-hd this year, I used it on my truck and will be applying it to the volvo I hope soon. It's just like fluidfilm a bit thicker and a lot more pricier. I liked everything I read about it. I've only used fluidfilm in the can so I can't really compare the viscosity in bulk form but I ...

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

The saga continues but is over as well. My passenger side axle was the correct axle.. So is it a big deal to have a turbo axle on one side and a non-turbo axle on the other side? I drove it like that for 10 years never knew. But now that I have to go get it aligned, I'm curious if it's going to be a...

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

new boot arrived today, and the turbo clamp fits perfectly, I haven't cinched it down yet but it's obvious it is the correct one. I'm kind of curious about this axle. Can you put a turbo CV joint on a N/A axle will it fit? I'm wondering if that was why I had so much issues with getting it off and ba...

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

fcp is going to ship me a new boot kit for the turbo for free to see if the clamp will fit.
A1 service and they really didn't have to.

Re: release cv joint Topic is solved

So I've been really busy with work and finally tried to do this today.. There is no way that clamp with work, it needs stretched another inch give or take. It won't even fit over the metal part of the joint with it hooked together. Let alone fit over the boot. So I definitely need a larger clamp. Wh...
