Re: Volvo V70 Diesel 1998 WAGON (releasing accessory bracket)  Topic is solved

Post by scot850 » Sat Oct 14, 2017 9:45 pm

Diesel Volvos are a little different to gasoline powered ones, but in the V70 versions of the D5 not hugely. If you assume the drawing of the accessory component bracket, and assume it is correct as seen above, it is the same as on any 5 cylinder gas engine. On this particular issue the problem is one of chemistry between metals.

Heat may help as the aluminum will expand quicker than the steel bolts. A quick shock with a hammer when hot should be enough to loosen the bolts.

Good luck!

Neil.

Hy there,

Well, at the end, assembling parts of several informations and the success is at the "rendez-vous"...Big applause to my wife Géraldine who has known have a different view on my engine, (I talk about the car of course...).

There is a screw, a 6 pans Allen, hidden under the cover of the timing belt, which was necessary to unscrew to free the accessories mounting.

A big up also to all of you who got involved in my issue. Sincerely "Merci ".

As you can see.

Wish we had Diesels :)
So glad you were successful.
