Re: just purchased 05XC90 2.5, 230xxx Topic is solved

Down on near the floor on drivers side like, 3 inches from door frame is a wire loom, there is one kind of by itself, mine looked fine from outside but was all burnt inside.

Re: Replacing fuel tank in 2005 xc90 2.5 AWD.

so, just so people know, I called up the Volvo dealer to inquire what the charge was for replacing the timing belt, 980.00 plus parts. So I called around and the cheapest place I could find was a Maxie, who if I supplied all my own parts would do it for 450. I really saved a ton by doing this myself...

Re: Replacing fuel tank in 2005 xc90 2.5 AWD.

Today I replaced the Timing belt, TB tensioner and TB pully, Water pump, serpentine belt and SB tensioner/pully and flushed the Radiator. Was scared when I hit that key the first time, but it fired right up and ran great! I followed several threads here on how to do it. I guess I spent a total of 6 ...

Re: Replacing fuel tank in 2005 xc90 2.5 AWD.

Along with the timing belt kit from FCP I also have a new water pump, serpentine belt tensioner and pully for it. figured I might as well go ahead and replace everything.

Re: 2007 XC 90 Front Strut & Spring Assembly

Great post. I'm wondering if it may be worth paying my shop guy to do the shocks since he has a full sized compressor. I have 2 compressors but they only work with regular spring shock setups. not rebuilding struts. Actually this is the style I have... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H99582U/re...

Re: Replacing fuel tank in 2005 xc90 2.5 AWD.

Ya, I should have taken pictures last night of the center column, I'll try to explain how I fixed them better. First, both my post where broken off. I tried the epoxy, but there was just to much stress there and they both broke off again. So I got some plastic cocktail sticks (zip ties would or any ...

Re: Replacing fuel tank in 2005 xc90 2.5 AWD.

Drove it from Chattanooga to ATL over the weekend. Been driving it to work all week as well, runs great now. The scanner was able to clear all codes, except for the Yaw sensor, I'll need to find a good used one. I was able to grab a few more parts from the donor car and replaced the chrome window mo...

Re: 2007 XC 90 Front Strut & Spring Assembly

What about a spring compressor if your wanting to reuse the springs? Can anyone point a reasonable one? I'll be doing a full front end replacement soon. I was just thinking of going with one of the kits form FCP. My truck has 175k on it, pretty sure everything is original.... maybe even the timing b...

anyone need this fuel pump and tank?

So I have the fuel tank out of the 2005 and it's good fuel pump if anyone needs it. it was the incorrect pump for my truck. Hate to see them go to waste
