Re: Dim Headlights

In the case of the old volvo V70/C70 it is less the bulb that causes the problem but the reflector. Maybe this is already a problem with your 2004 V70. The condition of the headlight lens can also be a factor. In my 20-year-old car, the reflectors are practically blind. They look like oxidized alumi...

Re: ['98 C70] Length of tie rods

Thank you, i have now ordered different tie rods to be on the safe side.
What fits will be built in. The shop has a 90 day return guarantee, so I have no risk.

Re: Inner Tie Rod Manufacturer

Hello, I have exactly the same problem. (https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=84985) I suspect that the 98 V70 has the same "chaos" as the C70 of this year... The C70 uses different steering racks, SMI and TRW. First you have to find out which steering rack is installed. If i...

['98 C70] Length of tie rods

I'd like to order the tie rods, but I'm actually a little confused right now. I understood that there were differences between the SMI and TRW systems. But if I e.g. search for tie rods with SMI system I get a lot of different lengths listed.
Which length is the correct one?

Re: Is it possible to identify the steering rack by its visual appearance?

Thanks for the hint. I have this hexagonal nut. So apparently the TRW steering has been replaced by one from SMI.

Re: Overhaul of shock absorbers and steering parts

Out of warranty? No, I don't think so! But it could be that Volvo is of a different opinion... :lol: I only do little things. For complex repairs and especially repairs on life-critical parts I prefer to hire a professional. I'm more into computer science. However, I buy the parts, because workshops...

Re: Is it possible to identify the steering rack by its visual appearance?

Thanks, it seems mine's an aftermarket part. Who knows where the manufacturer has labeled it....
Hmm, looks like I'll have to get under the car tomorrow.

Re: Is it possible to identify the steering rack by its visual appearance?

According to this video (at 1:31) there should be a VOLVO print on the TRW near the rubber bearing. The guy compares the TRW against the SMI: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBztvRSpy8g However, mine looks different: steering2.JPG I guess my steering rack is some kind of cheap aftermarket stuff. :-(...

Re: Is it possible to identify the steering rack by its visual appearance?

I got this picture from a video I just did (mobile phone on broomstick). Unfortunately, there's not much to be seen on it either.
However, the engine mount seems to have cracked.
Should this be replaced or is it still OK?

Is it possible to identify the steering rack by its visual appearance?

I need to order a new set of steering rods for my 1998 C70 2.5T. The sticker under the hood shows a TRW steering (#4). So far so good. However, the steering rack on the car has already been replaced and it is not known for sure that exactly the part was installed there that was once installed as ori...
