So I went to the scrapyard at lunchtime and picked up the trim for the glove box from a 2002 T5.. E brake dust boot cover from a correct color 2003 S60.. the handle for the E brake is from a 2006 XC70...and factory mud mats from a 2004 XC70.. that is all.

Well I can't understand a word he's saying..... But I know that Westlake tires are Chinese and I wouldn't buy them.

Washed Ruby Red '04 XC70 and refreshed plastic trim with "Wipe New." Car's appearance is much improved as a result. Should have taken before and after pics. 1 kit is just enough to do all the trim on an XC70.

A co-worker who drives a similar vintage XC70 saw the results and dubbed the product "botox for bumpers."

I installed the front left driveshaft on a 2002 V70 X/C, after cleaning and rebooting, only to find it would not settle into the transmission. Pulled the clamp and new boot off and placed a large pipe on the CV housing and convinced it to go in completely with a hammer. Now I have to find a new large clamp; anyone know where to find the stock style clamps?
