Volvo radiators dropped in price recently. I remember I got mine 2 years ago with 30+% discount and it was slightly under $250. Now Tasca offers 31319056 for $258.

Window rolling down when parked I can only think at the window control switch module, not unheard to go bad, may be swapable with similar year - or at least a 05-up. May also look at the connector near the door hinges.

Thanks orange for the response. Maybe I'm just loosing it I dunno but I'll find out soon when I go outside. Abscate sorry for the confusion. The radiator replacement was on a 2006 s60 2.5t. I was talking about when I did my 850 turbo radiator it was harder then the s60 to me. The lines where way more in the way and all the parts holding the sandwich fell off, it was a pain. On the s60 its pretty strait forward. I'll take that picture for you today.

Abscate im looking at the old nissens radiator and I don't see a date. Just a couple codes. On the used valeo it did say that date in the same place. I was thinking the top corner of the radiator had oil clogging some of the fins, even a couple damages but not leaking. I didn't have anything to get it out. I'm thinking compressed air, but I don't have that. So yea hope it won't impede the cooling abilities. I dunno what was wrong with the 06 v70 they pulled the radiator from but the radiator was FILTHY! I definitely should of said lower on price cause some clogged fins with oil and oil everywhere. The old Nissens that was in my car was spotless. Matter of fact when I first started the car first time after installing filthy radiator, I heard the dirt flying everywhere for a little bit. I'm kinda kicking myself in the ass rn, but so far so good. No leaks. Running back to normal. And the windows where all up this morning. So I will continue to watch that as well.
