    The Scan-Tech sliders I installed have been working fine for quite a few years (around 7-8 years or so) - though this thread is a reminder that is is probably time to grease the channels to keep them...

    If your mileage is still not up to where it used to be, you might consider getting your injectors cleaned. I saw a sharp drop in mileage a few thousand miles ago, but sending the injectors out to be...

    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 know whether this method will work on the XC70, but on my Forester, I wrapped the crank pulley with a piece of the old timing belt and then used a chain wrench. It worked great, with no...

    Did you look in the resources section? I think you will find most, if not all, of these torque values in the various documents available there.

    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,...

    My experience doing this job is only on my FWD 05 V70, but I was able to do the job without fiddling with the subframe, or lifting the engine (I did of course lift the engine to remove the mount) -...

    That is where my 05 leaked a couple years ago. I needed some extra long torx bits to do the job (replacing the thermostat housing unit).

    My experience is that for Volvo blue box parts I can usually get them at a slightly better price through a dealer that sells through the internet than through non-dealer sources such as FCP. The...

    thanks for the suggestion on the codes, and for the links. The first one especially is a nicely illustrated DIY on replacing the blower.

    It turns out I have quite a few codes in the fault trace section of VIDA, at least one of which is directly related to the blower.

    CCM help needed

    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.

    It was not the water pump. The leak was from the joint in the thermostat housing. Not where it attaches to the block, but between the two pieces of the housing.

  23. Coolant leak, possible water pump leak question

    Look at the IPD web site for this part, and then look at the reviews. One of the reviewers posted instructions. At least that is where I found instructions about 6 months ago.
