    Congratulations on your new (to you) XC70.

    As NTXC said below, the alarm message is usually to do with the battery failing in the alarm module which is under the fender liner in the passenger...

    I think the old style has an o-ring as well but it's "contained" inside the fitting. If my memory serves .... it's a few years since I changed the fitting.

    "Chirp" from passenger side, rear

    Heard this "chirping" sound from rear, passenger side. Observed that it was road speed related so drive train or hub related. Removed (with some difficulty) rotor/drum and immediately saw this.

    In my case, it was "CEM-1A5F Communication with BCM control module Signal missing" that pointed the electronic repair tech to the ABS module. The repair was CAD190 here in Toronto.

    Not every condition causes a trouble code to be generated. A couple of years ago, I had a fuel pump issue that starved the engine and caused it to stutter and nearly stall occasionally. No codes at...

    Symptoms sound very similar to mine a few years back. In my case, it was the ABS module (as hoonk mentions below) which I got repaired locally here in Toronto. There is no problem driving the car...

    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...
