Re: Weak Brakes on 95 T-5r

What's the procedure for bleeding the ABS pump on these cars? My '96 850 has somewhat weak brakes - it got better after I replaced the master cylinder, but still not quite 'right'. New calipers, new pads, new rotors, new brake hoses...the biggest change was after I did the master cylinder. I'm think...

Re: Failed, XC90 Spring seat installed less than 2 years ago...

Sheesh... I can't wait to see what my Gabriel Readymount spring seats look like... So are you thinking about spraying them down with silicone spray before you install them? The previous owner of my '96 850 used what I believe were Gabriel Readymount struts. I was actually considering dumping them a...

Re: 97 855 GLT EEC Trouble code help Topic is solved

Software, high end scanner, or Volvo Dealer - it won't reset with a battery disconnect I've got a video on how to read and clear the codes with a home made tool. https://youtu.be/LpoyZsaPVqc I'm going to make another one on how to get the system to relearn the damper motor positions at some point i...

Re: Radio code for a Volvo 850

I just went through this with a 2000 V70 that was given to me. Here's the web form I used. The page gave me the code as soon as I finished filling out the web form.

Re: re-Keying and repurposing Volvo lock cylinders

Re: S60 steering wheel installation in an S70

Cool! Thanks for the info. There's a S80 in the junkyard near me, and I was thinking of trying to swap the steering wheel/airbag from it on to my V70.

Re: 2000 V70: Swap remote keyless entry module+ remotes from donor?

Gotcha. My understanding is the one on top of the cluster (for lack of better words), is the antenna module. The one under the dash, roughly behind the headlight switch is the main alarm/lock module.
