2007 S 80 FWD 3.2 -- Upper Torque Rod Replacement  Topic is solved

Post by E Showell » Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:41 am

I've replaced numerous P80 and even P2 torque rods. Have to do it on a 2007 S80. Looks like I'll have to move the coolant overflow tank to get the long mounting bolt out. Anybody ever done it and is moving the coolant tank the trick? If so, anything I have to watch out for in moving the coolant overflow tank? Thanks.

Moving the coolant overflow tank to get to the Upper Torque Rod is by the book. Bolt torque is 110 Nm (81 ft-lb).
