Re: Tie Rods and LCA

Window in, not really that much work even for one person. Only issue was taking the rubber motor mounts off old regulator motor to transfer to the new one. Broke one, took it to the Indie for final adjustment and have the top fixed for whatever it costs. No sense in having a convertible unless it co...

Re: Tie Rods and LCA

I did forget to mention that at slow speeds there was a definite side to side wobble in the front end, I truly think I have a bent rim somewhere. I will use the spare tomorrow at all 4 corners and see if that changes anything. A month ago, my beloved Mercedes 300E was totaled in the driveway, that w...

Tie Rods and LCA

Hi all, trying to chase down a vibration/shimmy on my 99 C70 LPT cabrio. So far have replaced the upper engine stabilizer mount as there was little rubber bushing left and the lower transmission torque mount. Not much difference if any, but they are cheap and easy. Just had the tires rotated and bal...

Re: Safety of S70 vs newer cars

Err, Toyota, Ford, GM, Honda all have their own facilities as well. Mercedes had its own facility in 1973. https://hondanews.com/releases/honda-constructs-worlds-first-indoor-vehicle-to-vehicle-crash-test-facility?l=en-US&mode=print Also tests from all angles. https://www.torquenews.com/1083/volvo-v...

Re: Safety of S70 vs newer cars

Well, sorry guys, didn't mean to open a larger can of worms! Just thought the test was interesting. At least about newer cars using a bit more technology and perhaps different metals and build techniques to keep occupants safer. I am a single unmarried male of 54 years, and usually no one rides in m...

Re: Safety of S70 vs newer cars

Don't know how relevant this is but an interesting video nonetheless. I realize this video is 9 years old and tech has come a long way. Even though the little Renault survived better, I would kinda prefer RedC70 over it any day!

Enjoy! maybe...

Re: 2001 C70 Convertible Window Regulator Replacement

Have the same issue with my '99 convertible. Indy in Houston says they are notoriously expensive to fix and that Volvo has just recently made the parts available again. Says he will do it for $985. I did buy the kit and may try it as a DIY. I also found a window regulator repair shop in Phoenix that...

A Volvo love story

This is a topic I saw on a forum today, truly awe inspiring! This guy loves his Volvo and it shows. Hope the mods don't mind a post from another forum, but this gives me hope for my own C70. The knowledge and attention to detail is astonishing! Hope someone enjoys this as much as I did! https://foru...

Re: C70 window regularot

Yes, a V70 t5 would be sweet... I would love to do some performance mods on this, like a turbo back exhaust, 3" downpipe and tune. I just don't know how long it is going to hold together. I can do all the work, not sure about all the alignment and adjustments for the regulator though. Not happy with...
