Need To Harden Your V70 Window Switch?
I got an email from a MVS reader a few days ago:
I recently modified my 1998 V70 so that the drivers side window switch would last a long time. My switch had failed due to an arcing contact. I repaired to contact and then added an extra circuit to reduce the switch current from 16 amps to .001 amps.
I though you may like to include a link on your web site.
Thanks for letting the Volvo community know about this, Richard. How very industrious of you!
The repair is of course on a V70, but the concept will transfer to other models.

Bonus! More on the Volvo V70
Late in 1996, Volvo introduced a new estate car to the market, the V70.
The Volvo V70 was developed from the concept of the successful 850 Estate which had then been on the market since February 1993.
The exterior of the new V70 showed softer styling than its predecessor, but still carried a strong Volvo identity including the typical almost vertical rear end. Inside the car, the dashboard was new, as was most of the interior. As regards safety, a number of important improvements were also made.
An interesting and successful addition to the V70 models was the all-wheel drive XC 70 models.
The Volvo V70 was produced until 2000, when it was replaced by the second-generation V70.
