Re: P80 P2 Subframe Bushing installation with pictures 3507923

That's normal on that elliptical bore on the original bushings. Volvo doesn't offer that bushing for replacement but rather just one with a round hole. I'd be really curious as to the reason for that oblong hole if anyone knows.......perhaps for tweaking subframe alignment at the factory/ assembly s...

Re: 2000-2008 AW55-50SN Valvebody re-assembly

I would suggest reviewing your decision to install an external transmission cooler until after rebuilding your solenoids. I just read your original post to try to figure out what is going on. Although heat is the enemy of transmissions, these cars were well engineered to properly dissipate heat adeq...

Re: P80 P2 Subframe Bushing installation with pictures 3507923

Good job on the bushings! I don't know why Volvo recommends such a complicated press tool to get these things in as its quite simple to come up with something like you did to make it work so well. I assume you have driven it with the new bushings.....did you notice a big difference?? Sorry Matthew, ...

I think some of these new electric buses have dynamic clutches on the drive wheels, but I don't think that's one!

Re: Subframe Bushing installation with pictures

No don't worry about that, you only have to drop the subframe enough to get a spacer in between the subframe and the mainframe, about a quarter inch, make sure you do this otherwise the bushings will not seat fully. Note the orientation of the bushings before you take them out and put the new ones i...

Good tip from Oragex on removing the radiator fan to get the alternator out also, it was quite a pleasant afternoon job!

Re: Red Battery light came on today Topic is solved

Yeah I can't imagine putting gear oil in the haldex, especially with how small and fragile the pump is. I will have to order one from FCP and wait for a week before doing that job. The good news is that I put in my new used alternator and no more battery light! The one that failed had an aftermarket...

Re: Red Battery light came on today Topic is solved

Yeah, I might take mine down to the AE today, don't really want to buy that tool for the pulley and need to pick up some brushes and bearings. That Willow green XC includes a lot of service items that I wouldn't even have to think of for 10 years! On a side note, I lost a ton of faith in my local Vo...

Re: Red Battery light came on today Topic is solved

I think it's probably something simple like that. I'll get some new brushes and bearings and rebuild my spare now in the meantime. How difficult is it to get that pulley clutch thing off?
