Re: PCV R&R - Losing the battle to the dreaded hidden Intake bolt Topic is solved

In my case, the long torx was necessary as all the torx sockets I had of that size were 1/2" drive and too short - no way they were going to clear. Completely worth the $7 I spent on that long torx. The left bolt that holds the PCV box to the block is also challenging to get to...definitely need a 1...

Re: PCV R&R - Losing the battle to the dreaded hidden Intake bolt Topic is solved

Update: Decided to take the route of replacing the t-stat housing to gain clear access to the last lower left intake manifold bolt. This required obtaining a long T-40 socket drive bit to fit underneath the housing. This one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007QV64HO/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_sg3tDbEFZ7435 ...

Re: Cargo 12v power port

Wouldn't you want this to be a fused connection of some kind? I may tackle this over the weekend (as my welder friend is out until next week so the dreaded bolt must wait)

Re: Cargo 12v power port

Anyone have a pic of where one needs to plug this in or a walkthru? I grabbed a spare from the junkyard as well and would like to get this installed.

For the record, this is what I'm going to attempt making. I won't be quitting my day job to become an artist :)

I cut it down to 12.4mm and still can't get it to fit. Assuming the friend at work isn't on vacation this week I should be able to try #1 by mid-week. Glenn, I hope you have fared better.

Re: PCV R&R - Losing the battle to the dreaded hidden Intake bolt Topic is solved

You make it too complex. Just cut a 10-mm socket (dremel or angle grinder) short and it will fit. See the link I posted previously. Maybe I haven't yet cut it short enough. The original one on the left is 22.4mm, the right (the one I cut down) is 17.1mm. Head of the bolt is about 5mm long. Right no...

Re: PCV R&R - Losing the battle to the dreaded hidden Intake bolt Topic is solved

Intake Bolt 1, Crows foot Flare Wrench 0 How challenging each individual situation is seems to be driven by the orientation of the intake bolt head itself. Mine is in there with the longest dimension running completely vertical. Were it 60 degrees to the right or left (making the longest dimension c...

Re: PCV R&R - Losing the battle to the dreaded hidden Intake bolt Topic is solved

Yeah, imagine my joy. The images from VIDA (and from all the ones I found online) are from the serpentine belt side so you can't see the nub...but I got a finger back there and felt it.

Re: PCV R&R - Losing the battle to the dreaded hidden Intake bolt Topic is solved

I believe that nub is mirrored on the other half of the casting so you still need to get around it. The other potential issue is that the gasket between the halves isn’t available from Volvo separately- at least according to the parts guy and his picture from Vida at my local dealer. I will try to v...
