My First Volvo - Yay! (And Help)

Post by ragnarthevolvo » Mon Mar 09, 2020 8:52 am

Hello everyone. I got a XC70 last month and I’ve pushed it over 200,000 miles now. Despite the high mileage, it looks and feels very healthy.

There are a few things I’m looking to fix/upgrade, but one issue just arose and I can’t identify the problem:
In the video, you can hear a squeak/squeal that develops after driving it for a few minutes. It doesn’t have a pattern of showing up in acceleration/deceleration, stopping, or otherwise. It just shows up sometimes and I can’t find it or get rid of it b/c when I start searching, it stops.

Any ideas what this is and how to stop it?

Hello an welcome

It's the cabin blower, the bushings get a little old. It will make more noise in cold weather. Should still be working, but gets annoying at some point. The resistor needs be transferred to the new blower, or better yet, replaced as well.

I’m cheaper to lube it now,than replacing it for $200 later
