    Exactly my point. Would you say there is "no such animal as a Volvo blower motor" just because Behr (or someone else) manufactures it for Volvo? My point, though perhaps I was being too obtuse, is...

    While I have not looked at it lately, I am pretty sure that the battery I purchased at the Volvo dealer 8 years ago says "Volvo" on it. Did they stop selling these?

    I don't have a lot of useful info either since I can't remember what I did very well, but here is what I think I remember. On my 05 V70 I had a similar experience, except that second try it worked...

    I am more cautious, or maybe don't have as well-calibrated arms as some. I torque many fasteners by feel, but look up the torque values for brakes, suspension/steering gear, subframes, motor mounts,...

    On my 05 V70 with 178K, I changed the oil and changed all the motor mounts (except the rear) today. When I started the engine and drove down the street, I was shocked at how much smoother it was.
