Re: Looking at a t6- 2005 150,xxx mi

My '03 has 178K mi., Trans was rebuilt at 49K mi. by a local shop not using "beefy" parts. I had read somewhere that when the trans was reprogrammed after the rebuild, that the new programming alleviated the potential for damage somewhat by reducing power to the engine from a stop. Probably read it ...

Re: Help with the front strut (shock) asm parts

You could take a chance and buy used strut assemblies. I know they have some at Erie VoVo. They are a good used supplier and I have had good experiences with them.

Re: Help with the front strut (shock) asm parts

I would look into Moog parts for the front end if I had a price concern. Sachs for struts.

Re: XC90 2.5T, 3.2 or v8? Looking to buy

I prefer the 2.5T as well, '05 and '06 have a larger side seat airbag then the '03-'04. I would not shy away from the T6 as long as the transmission has been rebuilt AND has been reprogrammed after the rebuild. The trans on my '03 has 130K mi. after the rebuild and performs well, 180K mi. on the XC....

Link to Video 2004 XC90 T6 Pulling Engine

I was looking around online just doing general research and came across this video. As to why he pulled the engine to replace the turbo, I leave that to him, but I'm grateful that he documented the process. Our cars are getting old enough that engine swaps and sub frame drops (possible issue for me)...

Re: Turbo help need on 2004 XC90 T6 2.9

I hope never to do the job, but I had seen some videos from this guy https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCANzg4QxHJSTqlzP7bAGPAg/search?query=xc90 Doesn't show much of the operation, but looks like he did them from the top. More documentary than DIY. (The process is in a couple three videos, so I thoug...

Lining Up Front CV Replacement Joint On Propshaft

Hi, I am about to replace the front CV joint on my 2003 XC90 T6. I have the propshaft removed from the vehicle and removed the fuse for the Haldex and that has eliminated a ticking type noise that was audible when the XC was cold. Assuming it is the front CV, as it is all dried up and is quite stiff...
