Re: Piston rings? Head gasket?

Hey guys, so I'm currently taking the head off of the XC90. I have everything disconnected, intake manifold and exhaust manifold, cams and cam cover. The only thing that told me back right now is the 2 10 mm bolts on the back side of the head on the passenger side holding the coolant pipe on. Right now I have no idea how I'm supposed to get both of those bolts off. I can get the top one off, but the bottom one is blind and in such a position that I can't get a wrench or a socket on it. Any ideas?.

Search the internet for DIY Volvo 850 HG job.

The steps are almost the same as 2.5T engine.
