Intake CVVT Solenoid

Post by Mr. Detail » Thu Sep 13, 2018 11:23 am

I have the correct P/N solenoid for my P2 and I just wanted to be sure that I will indeed have to cut the wires on the old, existing one before installing the new one. (See attachment below)
I don't understand why this would not just be a plug 'n play.

I haven't personally done this, but from what I understand, Volvo redesigned the connector on the solenoid and any new replacements will have the new design. So you've got to cut off the old connector from your wiring harness and splice on the provided one.

WHen dual CVVT came out the end plug style would fit with two back to back. If you have the end plug then you change to the side plug style with a different electrical connector. The solenoid doesn't care about polarity.

Ok, so when I just opened up the box the new solenoid came in, all I have is the solenoid and the gasket. How do I know what size of those wires to get and where do i get them? At a local parts store?

Sorry, now I am confused about the plug. Do I need another plug too?

Does yours look like this?

The VVT unit has an attached cylindrical solenoid, and the black fitting on the end with the numbers printed on it is where the oval electrical connector in your spark plug coil harness plugs in.


Here, I marked them Intake and Exhaust. At the end of the harness, the two cables twist up to the VVT plugs. Or is the problem that your new one has different shape connector?
