Let’s talk Power Window Switch Repair
Windows going up and down ok except for one that will not always go up? It might be a VERY easy fix, detailed in the Volvo Forum tutorial. All you need is a small amount of technical skill. And a toothbrush.
The brass spring fingers are the contacts for the window switch. This is what we need to clean. I used a toothpick wet with some electrical contact cleaner to clean at the contact point of each brass finger. Do not bend the brass fingers just lift them enough to get your toothpick under them. Don’t go after the contacts with sandpaper or you will be buying a new switch soon.
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.
