Re: 2004 Volvo S40 1.9T remove motor mount stud

Hello all, I have a 2004 Volvo S40 with the 1.9lT engine. I am trying to replace the TB, water pump and pulleys. I am trying to remove the motor mount bracket on the engine block for the passenger side upper motor mount. I have the motor mount off, but the bracket that holds the mount to the engine...

Re: Need help identifying part.

Any problems you noticed with the car before you found this random spring??

Might be something from the throttle cable? How does it idle? Do you have lag when pressing on the gas? Has the car died unexpectedly?

Re: 2004 Volvo S40 1.9T remove motor mount stud

I just did a total timing belt kit with water pump and pulleys on this same car without having to remove the engine mounts. It’s not easy, but if you put the car on jack stands and remove some pressure by using a floor jack with a wood block to lift the motor. There is no way your getting that bolt ...

Re: New member needing assistance with Timing belt

The balance of what I describe assumes you have already locked the cams with the cam locking tool. I myself would install the cam locking tool BEFORE removing the timing belt, as on this 4 cylinder engine, the valve springs will push the cams (move/rotate) if they are not locked first. This isn't s...

Re: New member needing assistance with Timing belt

What is the exact diagnosis of the problem you’re trying to fix? I have messed with timing on these recently, the exhaust cam has the most spring tension to it which will rotate it clockwise once the timing belt or tensioner is removed, but it’s a very easy fix to rotate back in time with the right ...

Re: 2004 S40 build audio/interior

Nice work on the rear deck, my compliments. Just a thought. The rear seat armrest/cup holder can be turned into a nice speaker cabinet for a small sub or pair of small subs. Something on the DL. Think a pair of Focal 13WS or a pair of Kicker CWRT671. Bassbox pro can give you the right dimensions fo...

Re: 2004 s40 build audio/interior

Just a little update here, mostly on work around the engine and a few more pics of the interior. So I had a small leak I originally believed to be the exhaust cam seal, upon further inspection the timing had actually jumped a tooth and the timing belt tensioner had broken. The leak was NOT the seal,...

Re: 2004 S40 build audio/interior

Little update on where I’m at: Finished lining the entire trunk and rear seating area and adding foam to the trunk covers. I’ll add more photos of that later, nothing too special. Here’s the fun stuff, I already have the headliner out waiting to upholster it. Here is what I did to the rear deck cove...
