So, $10.60 to turn the rotor and it's fixed!

I'm thinking that after the hub was bent he kept driving until the rotor was worn into a wobble as well.
Glad it worked out for you! For $10.60 may just turn the other side also for even wear since they are so new.

When it's cold the coolant should be at the seam of the tank and rise when hot (Expansion Tank). If you want just replace the cap first but the mouth of the URO tank may not be flat or have irregularities so the cap is not seating?

Hi there. I have also an 04 XC90 2.5T AWD with 210k miles I had it for the last 30k miles and have no record from previous owners about when the transmission was serviced.

Re: Can P2 / XC / V70 rotors be turned? Or replace? Topic is solved

Can you turn the rotors on an '04 XC wagon? Thanks - Rotors are so cheap these days it's not worthwhile turning them. At min thickness they will be less effective in dissipating heat and even with new pads they are not at max pedal height as the rotors are at min. If the rotors are not true after t...

Reminded me of Richard Dawson. SURVEY SAYS. Perhaps what the dealer says is also in percentages of right or wrong answers?

Re: How can I use a combustion leak detector on a 02 S80?

I watched some videos and they show people using it at the cap on the top of the radiator. On this car, there doesn't seem to be anything like that. It looks like there's only the black plastic cap on this container where you add 50/50 coolant. Is that where I'd do this test? It doesn't seem right....

Re: Rusty muffler flange - How to detach it

Does anyone have a part number for these studs? I’m looking to replace the studs, nuts, and gasket and all I can find is the gasket. Thanks! Not sure if this is a fix for your overall problem, in the correct size of course? . Universal Exhaust Split Flange https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/nickso...

Re: Key & Programming Cost

Is that from the dealer or a locksmith? Does your 03 have the awful switchblade ke like my 04, or the traditional Volvo key with the remote as a fob like my 02 had? I dislike the 04 switchblade keys. The dealer said they could not make me a key, and fob like the 02. Both switchblade pop out keys ha...
