    Remember looking into this a few years ago and could find only one dealer in Toronto doing it. Unfortunately, I cannot remember who that was! At the Toronto Autoshow this year, I was chatting to a...

    Changed mine (MY2004) just last week and found it it where I expected to see it - on passenger side under fender liner mounted up high.

    Re fender liner, I just drilled the five rivets towards...

    I don't remember having any problem with the top mount when I did my rear shocks last year. The only alignment was that both ends of the spring are supposed to point in the same direction (in, I...

    Doesn't sound like turbo lag to me.

    Is it a new thing since the other work was done?

    I went the Sensen unistrut route a few years ago on the front for convenience. They were a complete waste of time and I replaced them two years later with individual parts. If you are up for doing...

    OK, we're saying the same thing but I just got my left mixed up with my right! Which, of course, is why my regular passengers point when giving me directions.

    Changed both front a few years back but made no difference to that noise at all.

    Also, with bearings, I thought the noise came from loading the bearing and when unloaded it went away.

    Did your noise change depending on which way you steer? I have a noise (at highway speeds) that almost completely goes away when I steer to the left, comes back when I straighten up again or steer...

    In my experience with other vehicles, the trick is to pry, rotate, pry, rotate and repeat until it just pops out. When I first learned this trick, I was amazed how easy the final pop was.

    If you have the space, ramps are certainly more convenient. I'd say they are safer as well as long as you chock the other wheels.

    These cars are pretty sensitive when it comes to the quality and grade of oil used as well as frequency of changes. Are you going to do your own maintenance or use an indy Volvo guy?

    May be wrong but I would put this in the main forum rather than here as this sub-forum is pretty quiet.

    The manufacturers of these bulbs are now claiming that they can be used in reflector housings to replace halogen bulbs. However, any I've looked at are much too long to allow the original dust cover...

    It's probably the alarm siren module. More specifically, it's the NiCd battery in that module which is either dead or dying. Some people have removed the module, cut it open and replaced the...

    The critical tools for removing the bottom bolt of the rear engine mount, in my experience, are 1/4 inch drive sockets and 1/4 inch extension bars. If you have those, it's an fairly easy job. If...
