    Do you have a link to that tutorial? I'm fairly handy and willing to try it. I've never removed the seats though. I trust my dealer greatly and will ask them if they can "fix" it but my guess is...
  2. Recommendations for used engine: 2004 XC70 - Any places to use or avoid?

    As some of you may recall my post of a few weeks ago, my 2004 XC70 with 165,000 miles (likely) broke a rod bearing and who knows what else. After much consultation with my very trusted dealer in...

    Another quick question: my dealer was still using conventional oil because that's what my car called for originally. I've often wondered if we should have been using synthetic due to the age of the...

    Thank you for the great advice! The rest of the car is, as far as I know, in great working order. This is what makes it tough. I don't owe anything on the car and haven't in a while. A...
  5. 2004 XC70 - Lower Rod Bearing - Biuy a Re-man Engine or Have Mine Fixed?

    I got complacent. I got lazy. Despite having my car serviced only at dealers since I bought it new in 2004, I wasn't treating my XC70 with 165,000 miles on it like a "used" car. I didn't check the...

    I am experiencing a similar issue on the passenger side. The mirror has a mind of it's own and pegs itself in one direction and begins to click. When I push my memory button it corrects too far the...

    Thanks, everyone!

    So a week after the dealer picked up a few faults from the ABS sensor, nothing new came up on the computer and all seems to be well. Weird but I'll take it.

    Separately, they...

    Thank you, Bill. I checked Xemodex but their modules are all for older models. I will email them to make sure I am reading it correctly.

    I am not getting any warning lights for brakes and the odometer and cruise still work fine.

    I had a Check Engine light and took my car in to check the codes. The reason for the Check Engine was...

    2004 XC70 - 148,000 miles and (knock on wood), no real issues to date. Dealer told me that they are picking up faults on the ABS module and it will likely have to be replaced: $1,800 parts and...

    Astro14 - my apologies. I looked back a few pages and didn't see anything so I went ahead and posted. I'll do a better search later.

    Tires for 2004 XC70 (215/65-16)

    It's that time again. It's time for me to replace the Michelins (that replaced the Pirellis) on the Cross Country. My dealer is recommending either a Goodyear Eagle Ultra Grip GW-3 (98H rated) or a...

    Not sure if you've already made a decision, but I've had my 2004 XC70 since day one and have had no issues with it. I have taken it in for every scheduled service as well. It currently has 89,000...
