Re: 2000 V70 XC AWD acceptable jack points

I may make a beam from a piece of hard hard wood to place floor jack at center front and have it lift at coners of front subframe. You are not the only seasoned Volvo guy who discourages lifing direct on the subframe center front. I'f I'm not mistaken he said he replaced one or more after making tha...

Re: occasional brief clicking from wheels, CV joints??

Mo.... Regarding that occasional clicking from CV joints. I have heard almost none for a week or 10 days. Not zero but close to it. I got the injecting needle for moly grease, used it on the Mercedes and works well. Also inspected the CV boots, they look good no breach or leaking lube. IN THE FUTURE...

Re: occasional brief clicking from wheels, CV joints??

They have to go back together a certain way, with a definite orientation between the Inner and outer race. Put a punch mar or scratch on two pieces before knocking apart Are you saying the same ball bearing should occupy the same inner and outer grooves in the inner and outer races....? Would allow...

Re: occasional brief clicking from wheels, CV joints??

Also, if the car sat for a prolonged period, the grease in the CVs may have settled. Once you started driving, it got warmed up and slung/flowed to where it needs to be. Just like "square" tires do after you start driving. Good shot FLXC90 not one click in recent days of driving about. Seems as tho...

Re: occasional brief clicking from wheels, CV joints??

just made a trip into town and back, not a single click.

I will inspect the boots, got the gear to inject more lube, may well do that. That is unlikely to hurt

Re: occasional brief clicking from wheels, CV joints??

Sounds good abscate so thx. For the moment taking them apart is way way down on my list of things to do. Only if I must.

I do intend to inject fresh lube and patch up the boots if they need that.

Re: occasional brief clicking from wheels, CV joints??

Thx again Mo. Ordered the needle. Haynes manual specifies molybdenum disulfide grease. never had one of these apart, looks like the same MB uses, a metallic cage with inner and outer "race" ballbearings occupy. So, probe a bit with needle tip to inject it into that assembly and inject on two locatio...
