Air distribution damper motor

Hello, I am getting flashing green light on ECC and CCM-222 air distribution damper motor signal too high in VIDA, This IS the motor I need to be looking at right? There looks like another motor a bit lower and more towards the outside of the car, but I don't really want to extract it unless I need ...

It is ok though, this car is turning into a driveway project, needs the parking brake fixed, air distribution damper motor replaced and calibrated. It is for sale btw, I can see this thing just nickel and dimi...

Could be wrong but.... Topic is solved

Just me again. Decided to do the front brakes this am before it gets too hot. Everything came apart fine. The brakes and rotors are actually ok, with Volvo pads etc, but since everything had to come off the back to do the parking brakes I figured what the heck. New rotor is on but I am pretty sure t...

Re: Parking brake Topic is solved

I am also concerned that the cable may be at fault, it was 110 heat index yesterday so I stopped early.

Parking brake Topic is solved

Hello, my C70 failed inspection because of a non working parking brake. I bought new shoes, well, and everything else. New rotors, pads and hardware. This am I got as far as taking off the rear disk, but it is hung up on the lip of the rotor. I can't see any adjusters, and I know it is hanging up on...

Re: Climate Control

Thanks for the response. How did you adjust the damper manually? We don't really need defrost down here anytime of the year. I took the damper motor off this evening and installed the new one. It did turn fully one direction but then nothing else after that. Tested with VIDA and did not complete the...

Climate Control

Hello everyone, Double checking that I am doing the right one. 99 C70 LPT has both hot and cold air coming from the dash vents and hot air to the defrost while in auto mode. Nothing changes in any other position, except full defrost. I have never had heat or cold air coming from the floor. I am gett...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Yesterday replaced the heater core and O rings. Going to take the bolsters off and install new air distribution damper. Getting flashing red lights on climate control module and ECM-222 code. Last week, replaced the power steering bottle and flushed the system, refilled.

Re: Dolby Surround and heater core

It wasn't until I was done and got back into the house that I looked up the part number. Guess that's why the premium sound system really sounds so good. I have the Bose premium sound in my Armada, and its nothing like the Volvo.
