Re: [DIY] How to install C70 amp into S/V70 or 850

I didn't add the speakers because they don't fit in the V70.
Only the rear door speakers are 6.5" on the C70 cabriolet and are a direct fit.
You can build custom mounts using MDF though.

Yes COMBI is instrument cluster in "850 OBDII" (the android app).
I have no issues on the speedometer.

Some time ago the ABS indicator used to light up when I was accelerating "strongly", but it doesn't do it anymore.
Maybe that could add to the ABS module hypothesis ?

Hello everybody !
I'm having some issues with my car and I'd like to read the DTCs.
Problem is that the program that seems to work best is VOL-FCR and I'm not ready to shell out 140 euros for it.
Do you have any alternatives ?

Re: What's this?

I think I found the best way to do it.
If you spray it with grease + compressed air once it's in the grove it will keep it's shape because it's been cooled down to a temperature where it loses it's elasticity by the compressed gas + the grease will help keeping it in place as well!

Hey, I've got a 1997 V70 AWD italian T5 (B5204T3) that sometimes shuts off while driving.

I've also noticed that the ABS light turns on...
