Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site.

Going from memory there are 4 screws, 1 bolt and a spring clip holding the cover in place.

The screws and clip are easy to see but the bolt is tucked away at the bottom right as you look at the engine.

The only things to be taken off are the auxiliary drive belt(s) and the cover. The time allowed for changing the belt is 1.4 hours so there isn't a lot of time to remove and replace loads of stuff.

Do you have the instructions for this job?

My instructions don't include that either.

There are several Haynes manuals on eBay at the moment. Some only go to 1992 but quite a few cover up to 1997.
