Where do they go? *pocket part*

Post by robbiewilso » Sun Oct 21, 2018 8:35 am

I pulled and exchanged the ETM on my 2000 V70. I removed turbo tubings and the cooling fan/shroud assembly, then removed the intake pipe from under the ETM, then dropped the ETM, and started replacing the parts in reverse order. I ended up with two small screws that I DO NOT KNOW WHERE THEY CAME FROM. Lame, I know. They are 8mm and about 3/4" long. Anyone? They obviously hold something small in place but I racked my brain and I cannot recall removing them or where they go. I attached a pic. Anyone have a clue?

Back of the radiator up near the top. One either side. They are kind of hidden maybe 4" from the top and screw into the front slam panel.

My policy after removing something is I thread the bolts back into the holes where they came from a few turns. Hence you can't fit whatever it is back on without removing the bolt or screw that belongs with it. Life is much easier since I started doing that.

On a big job, baggies, business card notes in bag, reference number on bag, and put number on printed out workflow,

I consistently beat book because I don’t get lost wondering what

If you mark the bag with M8 10 mm you also know what tools to use and what to,replace bad hardware with, too.
