warning on FCPEuro rear brake kits for 850/s70

Post by amblerman »

Hi folks

A work of warning. As of the date of this posting, I believe all FCPeuro rear brake kits for the 850/s70 that include parking brake hardware and pads are currently including the wrong spring hardware kits..

I've contacted them about this but I wanted post this on the off chance someone is about to order one.

as an example:
https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... earbkkt3p7

This lists PPS-51993043 for the spring kit. However, that part is this one and you can see from the URL that it's for the 240, 7x0 and 9x0 cars.

And I can tell you the springs and clips do not match what is on my 99 s70. (I bought the kit based on it being in the larger brake kit and did NOT double check fitment. 100% my fault but it's 100% not the right spring kit to include in the larger brake kit).
Unfortunately I bought the spring kits months ago and am only now getting to the job.
And of course.. I was in the middle of the job when I discovered this issue

the correct spring kit is: https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... -305550870

I will update this once FCP gets back to me.
