Wheelspin

My '95 850 wagon is in pretty good condition and it has constant, back pushing acceleration from about 80 km/h right up to and past 200 km/h (I've never tried to make it go any faster). However, I've never been able to get the front wheels spinning to any noticeable degree on bitumen roads (rips up ...

Foglight removal

Yesterday I tried to remove the foglights from my 850 wagon to spring-clean the inner lens which, over time, have become dirty. Crawling under the vehicle (up on safety ramps) I found two little metal clip hold the foglight securely onto a mounting bracket directly above the foglight. This was going...

I'm reluctant to use a dye because once the water disappears into the sunroof frame I would have absolutely no control over where it came out. I'd hate to think I might give the ...

What are these tubes?

While replacing the tailgate gas struts on my '95 T5 wagon, I noticed a clear tube in the body cavity behind the tail lights on each side. These tubes are about 12mm diameter and come from the roof area heading toward the ground. Common sense tells me they are drain tubes, but I can't fathom out wha...

I tried to force the glove box lid down enough to get at the latch using some pretty heavy gear but, while I could lever the glove box lid down to where I could just see the top edge of the glove box insert, I could not get the lid down sufficiently to slide a hacksaw blade through to sever the latc...

Thanks Lee, I have know a method where you have to drill through the front of the glovebox, but having to do this leaves me a bit cold. I'm off to try your method and hopefully I will be able to get mine open also. I'll let you know how I go. Volgrrr PS. A mechanic in a Volvo workshop told me he sim...
