Re: What did you put off doing to your P2 Volvo today....... Now Sticky!

The Blizzaks are top winter tires but are known for wearing scary fast in warmer weather over 10C-15C (50F-60F). It also seems as they wear down they loose their grip well before the wear limit marks. [/quote] That Is good to know. I did switch back soon after. It was just a really weird winter here.

Don't we have that in the community tool box?? All you have to do is pay shipping. Someone of course is probably already using it. but you can check.

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

I changed out my other low beam (did the first on 6 weeks ago) because I was naïve that this headlight would even need replacing. good thing that its not more expensive to buy 2 separate packs then a pair pack.

Re: What did you put off doing to your P2 Volvo today....... Now Sticky!

Almost Easter and still haven't switched back to the all seasons I have. Turns out I'm just lazy. Oh this also does not put me in good light but my low washer fluid message is still yelling at me.

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

Also today I changed out my engine air filter. The old one had a 2008 mfg date on it, I don't know when it went into service. Hopefully it returns the power and economy that the car originally had. I did not check it when I bought it 1.5 years ago, and I clearly should have. So I guess that this is ...

Re: What did you put off doing to your P2 Volvo today....... Now Sticky!

Harping back to my post 2 posts ago, I was wrong. I had a set of snow tires and was being lazy. We had 2 18" snow storms in 36 hours early December, it was awesome. I drove to work the first day of the storm as I normally drive (like a jerk) and all of the turns were very slick. I (thankfully) didn'...

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today?

The spring for my fuel door broke a few weeks ago. I've been putting it off because I thought it'd be a hassle. Now I checked and the local auto-parts-warehouse has the whole spring assembly for $7. In stock. Guess where I were yesterday? Ill guess where you was yesterday. At the local auto-parts-w...
