S70 and 850 body parts

Post by TheBeardedVolvo »

I need to change some parts on my 97 850 and I was wondering if a s70 fender would swap over like the bumper.

There is no commonality between the 850's and the '98-00 S/V 70's front end.

I did an XC70 swap on the front of my '97 850

I needed the following parts.
-Hood, fenders, bumper cover.
-Header panel (headlight mount, etc). You may need some slightly longer bolts for the lower attachment, as the 850's have stamped steel brackets along the bottom, while the *70's have the brackets as part of the assembly, which is thicker).
-AL bumper core WITH the brackets that attach to the car. (The ones that the long bolts that hold the bumper on attach to)
-Headlight plugs/pigtails
-Hood latch brackets
-Headlight assemblies and corner lights
'97 854 T5 - (Manual Swap, COP, P2R Brakes, 16T)
'97 855 GLT - Hers. RN swap/16T/exhaust/302s/Flashable M4.4
'78 GLE - Waiting in the wings. Future whiteblock/T5 swap.
