Re: Front brake piston stuck

Holy mackerel, thanks to everyone for the feedback! While I change motor oil regularly, and swap air filters, I've not been good about brake fluid changes. I am just now, later in life, learning what really needs to be maintained, vs. That What The Mechanic Said to Do. BKM, that video was excellent...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Replaced top torque mount with OEM Hutchinson. The poly one was torn to bits after being in just about 2 years.

For anyone wondering, the long bolts go towards the crank pulley.

Pro Parts Sweden - Torque mount failure

~31k Miles & ~2 years Below are pictures of the carnage... I kept running into a weird small & intermittent vibration that would come and go seemingly at random... Back to OEM/Hutchinson... IMG_20191009_143346.jpg IMG_20191009_143326.jpg Bought the replacement at FCP - the last one I'll ever buy =)

Quick PSA about strut spring mounts - '99 V70 XC 31212730, 30714686, 1387860 Topic is solved

If you run into an issue removing them where the strut assembly won't come free because of the sway bar end links, apply a little heat after putting tension on them and then hit it with an impact wrench. Spun the nut right off it without issue. In my case my struts are shot and I cannot replace them...

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

bmdubya1198, Did the oil look different as it was pouring out of the drain plug? Or was the only evidence of this sludge on the filter and in the housing? I might have to cut open some filters to check mine as I have the older style metal canister filters. -A The oil drained out pretty clean, no sl...

Re: Rebuilt Calipers - Pins, What's the issue? 30648017

Next time I check my pins I'm going to clean them up and spray them with silicone lubricant. It works great on all rubber parts and has no viscosity at all or temperature sensitivity. This is making me go look at my Kawasaki manual for my bike... I am betting that those are installed dry as well. L...

Re: 1999 T5V70M56 road incident report, misfiring [ bad #2 coil]

I have 5 cheap "don't want to know" brand coils currently running on mine that were made in Japan. I have my orig. 5 as well. Suffice it to say everything checks out at this point. If you ever need one, hit me up. My daughters were coloring the acorns the other day. Whatever kept them occupied was a...
