Re: 850 Ebrake cable replacement: How to

What cable mods do you have to do on the Febi parking brake cables? Neil. Work in progress. Upthread, some reported they got a poor fit on the Febi into the brake plate hole. No seal there is bad as it will let water in and seize the new cable. From what I can tell, you'd think it was engineered to...

Re: My 850 hates me

You're probably going to need to scan that sucker and see what the car thinks is wrong... It should have a hard code set, so at least you aren't tracking down an intermittent problem.

Re: 1998 V70 Headlights Will Not Work When Switch is Turned On

Two fuses for low beam, two for high beams. Was in there last weekend with no high beams, turned out I was experiencing a trip to the ride called the "wonderful world of corrosion"

Re: '98 V-70 Driver Door Latch Cable Became Disconnected

Try to find a position of the door where there isn't stress on the door latch, then open the handle without moving the door. If that won't work, watch robert's video on opening it... If that doesn't work, I went he-man on mine and drilled and cut until I could manually open it. I wouldn't recommend ...

Re: Airbox thermostat failure...

The order there does not matter. The thermo valve on the air box controls vacuum passing through the two Hoses from manifold to the damper motor, so which hose is where does not matter Thanks for the info. I replaced the brittle stock hoses by standard black rubber fuel hoses, is that an ok option?...

Re: 96 Volvo 850T5 turbo actuator question?

To me it sounds like you have an HPT turbo mailed to you. Are you supposed to have a HPT on that car or a low pressure? Check the actuator on the old one for giggles. Worse comes to worse, move the actuator over which I believe you can do. It could be that the only problem your having is the gauge/s...

Re: Tips on removing the head on a -99 v70 2.5t

Solid hubs are easy , three m6 flange bolts , and the hub is indexed to only go on three ways. Mark it with a punch or use the rear cam slot to get the right position CVVT hubs have a large torx bit, a T55 torqued to about 90 ft lbs. that’s really tight. A 1999 v70 T will have exhaust only CVVT The...

Re: Tips on removing the head on a -99 v70 2.5t

You want to set the crank to the clearance mark, but once you remove the cam cover with the 47 M6 flange bolts, the cams come out and lose their index Off comes the head for rework Going back on, you will set the cams based on the rear offset flanges, then set up the lock tool to torque the CVVT ho...

Re: 98-2000 ECC Cold Temperature Issue, 9171800 intermittent

Now I think I'm going to pull my "semi functional" ECC out of my trunk and re-solder the connections for giggles. My guess is there is a power regulator on the B+ feed going to it and it gets cranky as it gets old. That or an electrolytic capacitor on the same stage failing... If I remember correctl...

Re: Transmission going out.

All right, Ill continue to do the drain and fill, and then filter replacement. I'm in vergennes VT, you can hardly get more west than that, maybe I'll come by and say hi sometime, I think I'll wait and see before picking up your tranny. Thanks guys! How bad does the fluid look when you're pumping i...
