    Default where can I find a old timey paper manual?

    I just bought a 2001 XC 70 with a blown head gasket. I have a play-by-play from matthewsvolvosite but it runs out of pics 1/2 way through; anyway I need a manual. I can't find one anywhere? I bought some BS DVD online but I'm still struggling with the install.

    Where can I get a good book?

    Thanks,

    DrGian

    Haynes makes about the only manual for this car. It's not that good, but it's better than nothing.

    Thanks,

    So Actually I got the VIDA installation done after about 4 hours of installs and updates and whatnot. I had to manually edit the registry and find an old Win 7 laptop. Looks like a pretty good manual I've read through the head gasket R/R (which is my problem) and it looks not all that scary except for the 'special tools' needed to lock the cams, remove the cam pulleys and lift off the valve cover.

    Some posts seem to suggest I can do without these tools, but I'd like more input, maybe I'll start a new thread.

    Any advice, please throw my way, she's a 2001 XC 70 with the 5 cylinder turbo.

    Absolutely buy the special tool. It's about $100 on Amazon. You'll regret it if you don't, particularly when lifting or positioning the heads.

    OK I will, thanks for the advice. What about the cam locking tool? I've done it before (on a simpler engine) without locking the cams, not really sure what this tool does. Thanks again for the input.

    The tool that I bought for $100 on Amazon is both the cam locking tool, and cylinder head removal tool.

    I think it was this one: https://www.amazon.com/ABN-Camshaft-...t+locking+tool

    They're all copies of the actual Volvo tool, and made in China, but mine worked well on two camshaft seal replacements.

    OK so we're underway here, I did get the tool but I haven't used it yet. I got all the covers and whatnot off and the fuel rail and now I'm working on the backside. I got two aluminum covers off that cover the turbo and exhaust manifold but now I'm not sure what to do. I'm working off instructions for a non-turbo which say to take the entire manifold off (like 10 nuts/bolts) but on my turbo model there are just 4 that hold a small flange that connects the exhaust manifold to the turbo. I think I can get that off and disconnect the turbo and lay the whole thing on the gearbox and eventually lift the head off with the exhaust manifold still attached; there seems to be enough room.

    Do I need to remove the exhaust manifold? I don't see how I'm going to reach those 10 bolts if so.

    Thanks for the input, btw the tool on amazon was down to $70.

    Check your manual, but I would remove the manifold and leave the turbo bolted to the manifold. Turbo bolts are generally torqued to yield. They are stretched during installation and can't be re used...unbolting a turbo and getting it correctly torqued onto the manifold is generally best done on a bench, not bent over a fender and reaching down into the engine.

    In fact, on my Mercedes, the turbo and manifold are sold as one part. They aren't individually available. Is suspect because Mercedes doesn't want them split apart and re-assembled.

    Arg that's not what I wanted to hear, the bolts holding the manifold on are going to be hard to reach and they look pretty well rusted. I hit them with some WD and I'll let that sit for a few days and give it a shot. Thanks for the advice.. actually the Volvo shop manual said the same.
