Re: New Rule

Mea culpa. Been guilty, done that, too. My '93 (in the family since November) has a number of issues that are not critical but that I discover from time to time. I have found the forum very helpful a couple of times and am grateful. Other times, I don't get back right away because living self-suffic...

T-stat housing on 93 850; torx bit broken off

I suppose someone used a cheapo torx bit and it broke off in the screw head that's hardest to get at in the t-stat housing. Any ideas how I can get the screw out?
Suggestions appreciated!

850 Engine same in '93 5 speed and '95 automatic?

My 850 is a 5 speed (fun car, my first Volvo, been with me since November). I'd kind of like to have a spare head. There's a junked '95 850 automatic, head still on. Some rain probably got into top end, as the filler cap is missing and we've had heavy rains recently. Does 93 stick & 95 auto have the...

Battery light, Floor pans flooded, but where' leak?

I sometimes notice when I shut the ignition off the battery light comes on for a couple of seconds. It has been starting o.k. and I don't think it comes on while running, although I think it might have briefly when everything was wet (next paragraph). What could cause this, especially on shut off? L...

Re: 850 Antenna Mast Won't Pull Out

I believe we're making progress. Two more questions: At the top, it looks like the mast fits tightly inside the brass threaded part that the exterior nut goes on. How does the ferrule come up through there? Or does the ferrule just slip off the mast as you pull it out the top, which you seemed to su...

Re: 850 Antenna Mast Won't Pull Out

Lee,
I said, thanks! but hold it...what exactly should I yank on. If I bolt the antenna back into the body, could I get up on the back quarter, grab the mast with a vice grip and pull that way? If the exterior nut is on the shaft, does that lock it in? I'm still a bit confused.
