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...

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...

Re: alignment and inner tie rod question. Topic is solved

Kahl, Thanks for the clarification as to how the adjustment is made. I hadn't thought of it that way but it makes perfect sense. Here's up an update. In the end, I followed the excellent PDF that is found in this thread: https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=11806 Just because I w...

alignment and inner tie rod question. Topic is solved

Hi Folks, I recently replaced my struts (will write up a review of that soon) and brought my 99 S70 in for an alignment. They could not do the alignment because they said they couldn't get my inner tie rods loosened. I said "The inner tie rods? " and they said yes and gave me a quote for doing the w...
