The discussion came about after jamesbeat posted a sad story concerning the intersection of the following:

  1. gall bladder
  2. timing belt
  3. Volvo V70
I was planning on changing my timing belt last month, bought the kit and and all the tools I needed.
I asked for help on the forum, read all the tutorials, and watched videos for hours until I was confident I could do it.Then, a couple of days before I was planning on changing it, my gallbladder exploded and put me on the hospital :(
The doctors told me that I had to wait a month before picking up anything over 15lbs or doing anything strenuous, so I marked the calendar for the second week in November.Well, wouldn’t you know it, I was driving to work on Monday and the belt snapped and took out the engine :(I’m junking the car either tomorrow or Sunday, and in addition to syphoning out the full tank of gas, I want to pull as much valuable stuff off it as possible.I’m not going to have long to do it, and I am still not allowed to exert myself too much.

What are some small and easy but valuable things I could take off the car?

I’m thinkg the MAF might be a good start, but other than that, I just don’t know what’s worth taking.
