Best purchase I made beforehand was the serpentine belt tool from ipd. Also, second what abscate says, don't try to bend and twist the timing belt to get it p...

Re: V70 2.0 t 2001 trasmission cooler

Try doing a test-fit by pulling your bumper off and checking mounting position, clearances, and how you would route the lines. I'd agree, second one looks better. If you have a junkyard available, you could also pull a trans cooler and the lines off of an XC90 and mount that (which is what I just di...
