Re: Tire rotation: front-to-back? Side-to-side?

At the shop where I work we do front to back rotations. I'm not entirely sure why, but I'm certain we do it simply because its easier to do one rotation pattern for all cars (for directional and non-directional tires).

Re: 1995 850 Stereo

I swapped out the two units and everything in the new car works fantastically.

Thanks for the help!

1995 850 Stereo

Hi all, Today I actually picked up my car. It's amazing what turbos do for engines... haha. Anyway, when I test drove the car last week its stereo worked fine (all of the speakers worked great). Today when I picked it up though, the 4 front speakers only worked for a few seconds after the radio had ...

European-style turn signals for '95 850

I wanted to do this for a while with my previous 850 GLT but I could never locate a website that sold the European-style turn signal lights. During a short stint in my friends 745 Turbo, I found a site on my phone: http://www.lucid.hu/english/index.php?categoryID=302 I'm not sure how reputable this ...

Re: What has failed on your 1992-2000 FWD or AWD Volvo?

I forgot to check (1) shift-lock microswitch and (2) signal flasher relay for my 1996 850.

Other things:
  • Misc lights in the dash/radio.
    Backlight for PRND3L.
    Driver window button fell apart.
    Speed sensor at trans went in and out.
    Steering column cover secures broke.
    Horns died early on.

Re: 1995 850 Turbo Seats

Excellent! I posted something like this on another Volvo forum and they definitely weren't as helpful.

MVS is definitely the best!

Thanks to you both.

Re: What is a turbo sedan's mpg at 90 mph?

I cant help but notice you're around Denver, so that leads me to ask about the thinner air up there. I don't know for sure (or at all) but it seems to me that if the air is thinner then the car would use less gas because the car has to maintain a proper air/furl mixture. But then that would make les...

1995 850 Turbo Seats

Hi everyone, On the fifth of this month someone in a Jeep Grand Cherokee totaled my 1996 850 GLT when they ran a red light. I was so angry! (See the picture.) I was hit so hard the car spun 180 degrees and the right shock tower sits about 1cm away from the wheel (the left is 1.5 inches or so). Since...

Re: '96 850 Idle Issues

I changed the bad vacuum line in the parking lot of Napa and it ran like a champ on the way home. But when I cranked it up 30 minutes later it started to idle around 600 rpm again. A visual inspection of the MAF didn't alert me to anything, its' connectors are strong and clean. How can I get to the ...
