    I was having a hard time pinpointing the leak, so I took it to my mechanic, whom I trust.

    Solution: Leaking water pump.

    Yes. I've been working on my own cars since the 1980s, but mostly GM. Not a Volvo expert.

    Coolant leak as car cools down

    I've got a coolant leak in my 2003 XC70, and the odd thing about it, at least to me, is that the leak doesn't appear while the car is running and at full temperature/pressure. The leak appears about...

    Windshield Rain Strip Clip Headaches

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm trying to fix the problem of some broken windshield rain strip clips on my 2003 XC70, and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

    The original blue clips...
  6. Heating & AC = Cold or Hot, nothing in-between

    The temperature control on my 2003 XC70 has recently stopped working correctly. Basically, it's full cold for most of the control settings until you turn it all the way to maximum heat, at which...
  7. '03 Sunroof suddenly not working, alarm?

    Last time I used the sunroof, it worked just fine, but I didn't use it all winter. Now it's completely dead. I checked the fuse. No problem there. I also read somewhere else about the sunroof not...

    The large construction nail was right at the outer edge of the tread, so Costco service dept. pronounced it non-repairable, and they were going to replace it under road hazard warranty.

    I guess...
  9. Single tire replacement -- car pulling to one side

    Last September, I picked up a nail in the right rear tire of my XC70 with less than 5k miles on a new set of Michelins. I had bought the tires from Costco, so I went back there, but Costco couldn't...

    2003 Rear Wiper Arm Versions

    I just replaced the rear wiper arm on my 2003 XC70 after the blade clip cracked.

    It seems that there are two rear wiper arm versions for 2003 models, one before a certain VIN and one after. Mine...
  11. Current draw with ignition on, engine off

    Does the XC70 have an unusually large current draw with the ignition on, but engine off?

    Yesterday, I was in an automatic car wash that has garage doors on both ends that close in colder weather....
  12. Different tire pressure specs in different places on the car

    I just got new tires on my '03 XC70, and the tire installer put a sticker on the windshield with the inflation pressures, which were 35psi front/38psi rear. 35/38 is, in fact, what's on the sticker...
  13. '03 XC70 front door speakers Repair or replace

    I successfully replaced the front right window clips on my '03 XC70 today and noticed while I had the door panel off that the foam surround on the lower door speaker is failing. The speaker still...

    '03 XC70 window clip issue

    I seem to be getting all the aging XC70 issues this year. I lowered the passenger-side window on my XC70 and heard a thunk. When I looked over, the window was tilted forwards away from the rear edge...

    I also have a hard-to-fill tank, but I've just resigned myself to having to trickle gas in at the pump. I've been through all the topics here and have taken it to a Volvo specialist mechanic who also...

    I'm in the American Southeast where we get maybe 2-3 snowstorms per year. I have noticed that it drives very well in snow -- on the few occasions where I've had the chance.

    How is XC70 AWD supposed to work?

    I've accidentally chirped the front tires (Michelin Harmony) a few times on my '03 XC70 when pulling out into traffic from a stop, and that's made me wonder: If this car is really All Wheel Drive,...

    I replaced the motor yesterday, not as hard as I thought. Since the problem was intermittent, we'll see if it's permanent.

    For anyone else doing this, prepare for some deteriorated foam to fall...

    The biggest issues I've had with my '03 XC70 (gasoline model in the U.S.) have been electronic. There was a battery-drain issue for a while, and the functions on the instrument panel have been...

    OK, I'm going to order a replacement blower. On the XC70, do you have to break off one of the blower housing tabs to remove it without removing the dash? I see this mentioned in discussions of...

    I've never heard the term "electronic resistor." If it varies the ground to the motor to adjust voltage, I'd call it some sort of solid-state relay or variable voltage regulator. It might contain...
  22. No, but if I have it turned up to full speed,...

    No, but if I have it turned up to full speed, there's no hesitation in coming up to full speed once function is restored. I could be wrong, but it seems like a bad connection issue to me.
  23. I'll take your word for it, but I work in...

    I'll take your word for it, but I work in electronics professionally. With a wirewound resistor, which I would imagine is what's involved in the resistor module, you can have a break in the resistive...
  24. '03 XC70 heater blower, resistor, or both?

    My AC/heater blower has been finicky for a couple of months. It usually works, but sometimes doesn't come on. Slapping the dashboard right above the glove compartment has always made it work when it...

    What's the experience been with replacing incandescent lamps in Volvos with LED chip lamps?

    The previous owner of mine replaced a bunch of them with LEDs around 2016, and I just had to replace the...
