Re: AW55-50SN woes-easy to repair? Topic is solved

I have driven it about 70 miles so far and it is like a brand new transmission. It shifts smoothly between all the gears. I have a few areas I drive where I know I will get a 2nd to 3rd flare almost 90% of the time, and I drove that last night 5 times and didn't get a single one. hows it going, did...

Re: 02 XC70 Alarm Siren/UEM Woes

I had an issue last month where my battery was drained. I had parked my 2002 V70XC in my garage with the windows and sunroof open, and accidentally hit the panic button on the alarm (and my alarm does not sound due to the typical problems) and the lights flashed all night without me knowing and the ...

Re: Thud when pressing accelerator

I had a clunk something like as well. It seemed like I would get it when accelerating and hard braking. After having a lot of noises when I got the car, I replaced all the motor mounts, and a lot of suspension parts. I kept chasing this final clunk. While I was ordering some other maintenance stuff ...

Do a Gibbons drain and fill-- there are youtube videos and many write ups on the internet. Based on what you have already done, this is well within your abilities. You can pretty quickly get almost all new fluid into the transmission with a gibbons. I have a 2002 with 108k miles. I had a flare betwe...

Re: 05 XC70 Front End Noise After Control Arm Replacement

Check your sway bar ends. It is nearly impossible (from my experience) to check them while they are under pressure while installed and the car is on the ground. I chased noises when I got my XC, and as soon as I fixed one, another would pop up. From what I have learned, many of the wearable bushings...

Re: LCA clearance at frame

The arms were exact is size and dimensions to the stock ones I took off. I am confident they are the correct ones, and I think the cast tolerances were a bit off. I couldn’t really judge the bushings because the old bushings, especially the front, were shot.

Front. Detroit Axle.

I bought the car and it failed inspection for the bushings being bad. I quickly bought a cheap set from amazon so I could get it on the road. Apparently I made a $100 mistake.

Re: What did you do to your P2 Volvo today....now sticky!!

I installed the IPD Poly Subframe Bushing Insert Kit on my XC70 last night. It seemed to tightened the car up a bit. I also noticed some clearance issues with my passenger front LCA where it is rubbing with the frame. The LCA and bushings have about 2,000 miles on them so I hope the bushings are not...
