Do you have a Volvo S80? Do you do your own wrenching? Have you thought about changing your own Volvo S80 Timing Belt? Learn from someone who has done it.
Tips & Observations for changing a Volvo S80 timing belt:
1) For me, there is NO WAY that I could have done it without pulling the main crank shart and pulley and looking at it. I don’t think the clearance was there even if you were really good at this.
2) In a few critical spots, my car was different than the VADIS info: The serpentine belt tensioner and the instructions for the oil shield near the crank.
3) The water pump: Damn (!) hard to get in and out, but you can; and to install it you really have to have good light. Put in the top front corner first, and make sure the gasket stays on the two position posts.
4) I did not replace the serpentine belt tensioner; but if I had wanted to, I am not sure it would have come out of the space between fender and engine.
