Its not too bad, but think about a throttle body cleaning and a PCV renew to make it a worthwhile dive in.

If you want to got the used route, Ive got one from my 1999 part out in PARTS classifieds...(shameless plug)

Anyone installed this starter without left hand bracket? My original on my S70 98 has a bracket. I am looking on FCP Euro Bosh and it does not have a bracket: SKU: VOL-8251551. Any recommendation for aftermarket starters like Duralast from Autozone etc? Thanks

The bracket was removed by Volvo on later models, so you can install your new starter without either the bracket or worries.
