Finally replaced my dull passenger headlight, driver fender and driver door trim. Had to rig the wheel well since I dont have any of those nice volvo rivets. A fairly productive evening.

I did have a clunking sound going over speedbumps, found out one of the swaybar links got loose.

I then got onto checking all the engine mounts: gotta replace them all :mrgreen:
The passenger lower mount is just starting to sink

Subframes bushings aren't looking much better :lol:

There's still a few oil leaks. One if from the rear of the pan, but the gearbox might be leaking as well :? I'll do an oil change next week

That oil leak may be the turbo oil drain seals... definitely easier than dropping the pan! Looks like that axle seal might be leaking too.

You definitely caught that passenger side mount right on time! They can be a pain once the bolt heads dig into the rubber.

Nice. Where did you buy color matched spray paint? And clear over it?

Oh, funny! On my screen it looks like a very light grey and closely matched! Ace hardware white it is!

I want to get the smaller S60 mirrors for my XC wagon and paint to match, but it's just basic black, shouldn't be too hard.

I've gotten paint from Automotive Touchup (automotivetouchup.com). It matched perfectly on my old V70. I plan to order from them again to match my spoiler and a piece of door molding that needs to be replaced on my R.

Used mine as a tool shed while I replaced the radiator on my New Beetle, reminding me how masculine it was next to a Miata, which means ‘“pink tutu” inJapanese

So just how long does it take to change a radiator on a Beetle? I could have swapped like 15 Pink Tutu engines in this time! :rofl:
