Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

two things in the last week for my 1999 s70 base. 1) finally replaced the burned out bulbs in my radio Much better now. 2) replaced the low pressure hose for my power steering pump. I had replaced the reservoir a few months ago and the old hose wasn't making a good seal on the new reservoir. A new h...

Re: Difficulties putting S70 in reverse

Baxtex, You are not alone. I too have a 99 s70 manual (110K) with the same issue. Sometimes, but not always, I do find it difficult to put into reverse. It feels as if it just doesn't want to go into reverse. Like things aren't quite aligned right. But also like you , moving the shifter into 3rd qui...

Report on dash mount repair Topic is solved

Hi Folks, Here's a report on how I repaired my dash. I acquired a 1999 s70 with 110K on it back in late 2016. This was my first Volvo and although the car was in generally good shape, the dash did rattle a bit. At that point I had no idea where that dash rattle would eventually lead. After two lout ...

Re: what is this connector (behind turn signal stalk) Topic is solved

I think I figured it out Thanks to kaneelchep. I searched on a V70 and found the attached picture of a V70 wiper switch. Note the extra pigtail and the extra switches on the front of the stalk. At this point I'm 99% sure the reason my socket is empty is because I don't have this stuff (or the rear w...

Ah.. that might be it. No I don't have a rear wiper.
good point.
I'll look for pictures of that to see if that gives me clues. Thanks

Re: what is this connector (behind turn signal stalk) Topic is solved

Thanks for the quick reply. My cruise control is on the left side. That's also why I currently think it's supposed to be empty on the right side. My left (turn signal) stalk does have two connectors on it. Once that clips into the turn signal stalk itself and then a pig tail that plugs into the whit...

what is this connector (behind turn signal stalk) Topic is solved

Hi Folks, I am putting my car back together after repairing my dash and I seem to have ended up with an empty connector with no obvious plug to fill it with. My car is a 1999 s70 base model (5sp manual). My current thought is that because my model is a base model, nothing plugs into it. Or maybe tha...

Re: instrument panel bulb nightmare

I just noticed that my reply to this thread isn't actually here. Don't know what happened but that's ok. I have more info now. Abscate, thanks for the offer. So far I haven't broken anything and at this point I don't think I will because I got some of the right bulbs this time and they work like a c...

instrument panel bulb nightmare

Hi Folks, As part of my 1999 s70 dashboard repair (write up coming soon) I decided to replace all the bulbs in my instrument panel. This includes the 20 warning/idiot lights labeled B1-B20 in the lower left and right on the back of the instrument panel. These nasty things: bulbs.png I ordered packs ...

Re: climate control bulb clarification Topic is solved

Thanks for the links folks. Those are what I need. I'm don't think the mini bulb from Radio Shack would work easily for this particular application. I tried taking out one of the bulbs and it just shattered on me. When I used a magnifier, I could see that the bulb leads were actually welded/soldered...
