      Sorry for the misinformation.

      In my experience (cracked front drivers corner of the pan), it only leaked oil when shut off. I drove it home about 10 minutes (never lost oil pressure), and got a...

      I haven't experienced a faulty heater core before, but I think that's the only thing it could be.

      I'd put some plastic over the top of your CEM ASAP.

      There is essentially no oil in the pan to drain out when the car is running.

      It's when you shut it off to take a look that all the oil will fall back into the pan and drain out the crack - at that...

      Most rear suspension components are different between FWD and AWD. Upper control arms may be the exception to that rule, but I'm not positive.

      Sounds like a good plan. I just installed KYB AGX rear shock absorbers on my AWD V50 - setting 3 is just about right for me (firm but not harsh). My shock mounts were in good shape. I found it tricky...

      I snapped a number of studs just trying to remove them. The head had to come out of the car, and the machine shop had to drill them out and install thread inserts. The studs themselves couldn't be...

      Check out Pumaspeed for details on some typical hybrid K04s and dyno sheets. I don't think it's as simple as popping in bigger turbine/compressor wheels - it requires machining the housings. There...

      I think many of my clips could have been re-used, but it was good to have the new ones to guarantee they will work. A number of them will break when removing the existing trim.

      My rear bumper is flaking in the same way. When replacing my struts I noticed some overspray in the wheel liners, so the bumper was likely repainted or replaced/painted.

      I agree that it is likely...

      I think there is a discrepancy between Volvo and aftermarket control arms. Please don't take my word for it, but I think the options are:

      From Volvo: 18mm or 21mm
      Aftermarket: 15mm or 18mm...

      Well, I started with the front driver seat to address the persistent SRS-013A (front driver SIPS bag). One of the connectors of the seat harness had been separated entirely (yellow one) which is...

      I didn't have to remove any sensors when replacing mine. Essentially just the axle bolt and the 4 bolts holding on the wheel bearing assembly.

      Thanks for the details.

      I just want to be crystal clear that I can read the resistance of the airbag without it deploying and make sure I'm not misinterpreting what you're saying.

      Thanks for the tips.

      SIPS bag is in the seat. When you say check for continuity, I assume you're suggesting checking the continuity of the harness side of the connector, not on the airbag itself?...

      After a quick exchange with someone at Xemodex, they seem fairly sure it's related to the driver's main (steering wheel) airbag. I'm not sure why the warning goes away after a few seconds.

      Could...

      Thanks - I recall someone mentioning that before, but it sounded like their issue was different than mine.

      Nothing seems to be wrong with the SRS light. Scanning with VIDA, it's throwing an...

      I would be updating the software of a used replacement unit. It will not work with the car if the software numbers are different.

      SRS Module Software Updates

      Hi Everyone,

      A question about changing the software on an SRS Module:

      As per Xemodex's website, they suggest that as long as you get a part numbers matching SRS module replacement, that you can...

      I have replaced 2 PCVs (entire filter housings), and the suction was quite strong after replacing both.

      I finally managed to get that bugger off!

      A lot of hammering of the CV joint loosened things up. Then, I found a small bolt that fit into the hole in the back side of the flange, and used a 1/4"...

      Thanks - I had read your thread. What did you put through the holes from behind the flange? Sounds like you used a bolt? Even if I could fit something in there, there is no space to swing a hammer at...

      Yes - it's secured by the angle gear flange, two carrier bearings, then the haldex flange. Unfortunately the front subframe gets in the way of dropping it more than a few inches in the front. It has...

      I have tried soaking with penetrant to no avail.

      Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think that will work because the CV is cupped by the Haldex flange (unless I'm misunderstanding what you're saying). Here is a simplified illustration of what...

      Any tips on separating the driveshaft from the flange on the haldex side? I don't seem to have anything that fits into the holes on the backside that I can hammer on, and hammering on the bearing...

      Good point. Just asking because Volvo is very specific about keeping the flanges in their original positions relative to the driveshaft when removing/reinstalling.

      Thanks - so, do I need to remove the angle gear and haldex flanges and attach them to the driveshaft to have it balanced as an assembly?
