Any easy homelink mods?

Post by mydamnvolvo » Thu Feb 09, 2017 11:09 am

Hello Everyone!
Since I had a gate installed on my driveway, I have been running out of the car to punch in the code. Is their any way to swap the sun visors or buy something that has the three little buttons? I have a 97 960. Thanks!

I'm not sure if an 850/S70 homelink visor works in a 960. Shape might be different. Anyway, I took a spare visor I had and gutted the homelink box out of it. Then I just hooked up power and ground and fixed it into place under the dash of my 240. Kind of rigged but it works great. FYI the box looks like this (though this is not a volvo one) http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/2629099457 ... noapp=true
