    Waaaaait a minute here. Are we talking about the bolt at the end of the axle? And can you describe what 'axle ping' sounds like? I just may be having this problem....

    Monroe struts price premium: I bet they are the 4C adjustable shocks (made by Monroe, and yes super expensive) rather than the standard Sachs-made items.

    The Monroe's aren't "better", they are...

    Yes, this. The brake booster vacuum pump (under the airbox) is quite loud. The switch is in front of the airbox and has a wire harness and vacuum hoses connected to it.

    I just went ahead and ordered a new bar with attached bushings from the local dealer.

    Original one lasted nearly 200k, not sure I'll still be driving this car at 400.

    Looks like I'm up against this job at 200k kms/2007 XC70. RHS bushing is completely disconnected from bar and bar rattles around.

    Any updates on this process or parts needed? Still Energy 9.5115?...

    Huh. I have a 2007. It's been through several sets of tires on 2 different sets of wheels... never had anyone mention a tire pressure sensor. Is TPMS an option or maybe a USA-car thing?

    If you had a flashing check-engine light, there are likely stored codes that could be read with the DICE diagnostic tool that may help uncover the problem.

    I'd consider a load test on the battery. Leaving it a few weeks without starting could have drained the battery down too far and it's a little weak. Many auto parts places will do a load test for...

    I haven't looked at the block diagram for ACC, but I know that the driver's side power seat module was replaced on mine to correct an issue with ACC. Makes sense to me that for dual zone to work,...

    The power seat module also contains the temperature sensor for the A/C. I believe it's located under the seat. It may have a poor connection due to corrosion/age. I did have to have one replaced on...

    Too quiet here

    Nobody is doing overseas delivery these days? Would be a great experience to replace my XC70.

    Ah, could not pick that out in the photos.

    A similar treatment to dealing with yellowing would probably work - a series of progressively finer wet sandpaper up to 1500 or 2000, followed by polish...

    To me in the photos it looks more like sandblasting from road debris.

    I wouldn't use anything like a grease that leaves a residue, it attracts dirt and long term will leave it gummed up (but at least not frozen)

    These cars seem super easy on batteries. I replaced mine just because it was 10 years old. I've had other cars where 2-3 years was more common.

    What changed in front suspension in 2007?

    Looking at control arms, ball joints, etc. for my '07. Vendors show one number "fits up to 2007 XC70 chassis number 269745". My chassis # is beyond that - near the end of P2 production.

    Any idea...
