Four M8, 14mm hex bolts attach hood to hinge


To the Volvo engineer who designed in the catch tabs which let you position the hood for attach and removal, you are a genius...

:D

Interesting the quality one gets from a company that value(s/d) their workers... =)

I'm just thrilled that we can stand the hood straight up.

The rarely seen T4 with crane attachment.

Way off in background you can see Elizabeth, the 1999T5, snuggling up to 26 foot boat I once towed with her. We have an agreement never to speak of this again, though.

Amazing she didn't file for divorce after that. Elizabeth must really love you...

I like that red on your T4. mine is darkgreen and has a diesel so loud my ears want to fall off.

The Creator loves EU, that’s why you get T4s with diesels and stick shifts. She is even trying to get rid of the British for you, we, on the other hand are suffering the 4 year Orange Plague.

your T4 is AT? How is it holding up? Mabe the V6 gas had less torque than the 5cyl diesel, but here the golden rule is never to buy a T4 or T5 with an AT. A friend of mine had problems with the AT in his T4 and another buddy just got rid of his T5 with weird AT problems.
