Is there an engine compartment diagram available that shows all the little brackets and supports attached to the engines. my 850 and my v70 awd seem to have a few left over, and I havent a clue from where. They are for hose and cable routing, but the shapes and hole sizes dont make their placement apparent.

Provide photos of the extra parts and we may be able to identify them. I do not know of a comprehensive diagram of all the bits and pieces under the hood.

The v70 AWD one goes on driver's side and routes the vac. hoses right up against the head... It's kind of a clam shell if I remember correctly...

Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
