      Thanks, hoonk. Sounds like you’ve been a tech then? Seem pretty knowledgeable here.

      Yeah, I’ve had no charging or other voltage issues, not once. So I agree that’d be odd if it is the bolt. We...

      So I’m curious, having never worked on the T6 before...does the bolt in question need to be removed to replace the alternator clutch, or is the bolt part of the READ pulley and the clutch on the alt...

      Thanks! Forgot to mention, I did try turning the A/C compressor pulley, it locks one way and freewheels the other. So I’d imagine that clutch is good?

      This is a reasonably loud metallic rattle,...

      Know this is an old thread, but dealing with this myself. Figured I’d see if there are any updates. :)



      I recently installed a set of Scorpion Verdes on my 2013 R-Design at the insistence of...

      This is interesting. My 2013 has an odd rattle, non-rhythmic and just off idle when hot out. Last August, the dealer replaced the alternator clutch pulley to cure the issue, but it returned a few...

      Sorry for the delay, not on here much :).

      Yes, I still have them. Another guy on FB has asked about shipping, so he’s up first. Can get a quote for you though, in case he back out.

      Thanks,

      Not sure about the S60, but I know the XC60 R-Design didn’t get the factory Polestar until 2012.

      Maybe it’s just me, but I’d personally *rather* replace the glass. I’ve had terrible luck with paint work, either chipping and not holding up, or looking bad from the get-go. Glass is hard to mess...

      Agreed. Heck, losing enough oil to seize the engine between an entire oil change cycle isn’t something that should happen on a car this new, let alone in the short time since serviced.

      I get that...

      ^This.

      To me, whether he’s spent a ton of money at the dealer or not, there are still future purchases to think about. Not only that, one customer who is treated poorly has a tendency to...

      They look very low profile compared to my 255/45s, I was wondering myself. Not sure if it’s the black wheel making the illusion, or maybe the tire shine. Lol

      Thanks again.

      Yeah, I’m not sure if being a former tech is helping or hurting. Personally, I think their egos are too big, and they know they’re wrong now but are sticking with the tires because...

      Thanks for the suggestions.

      1. I may end up doing that. One issue is soon to resolve itself (see below), but the other not so much. Only problem is, dealerships are scarce around here. The...

      Hey guys,

      Know this is an older thread, but was this ever resolved? I, too, am at the end of my rope with Volvo “¯Customer Care”¯. I have a CPO XC60 with coverage ending in July, and we’ve been...

      Couple of things here. First, you’re confusing the fluid counter with transmission adaptives. The fluid counter simply tracks the age of the fluid; how many heat cycles, etc. It has nothing to do...

      The almost-stopped downshift bump is actually the result of a SW update. Volvo changed the downshift threshold from 4 mph to 1 mph, because some customers were complaining of feeling the downshift. ...

      Honestly, I don’t *see* any actual bends. The car had a bad shake when we bought it, and we were told a few were bent. After 4 new wheels right from Volvo, she still wasn’t overly smooth. Still...

      Yeah, I hear ya. Wife’s XC90 has a leak at the flex pipe. Looks like Walker (not preferred) and Magnaflow are the least expensive options. Not sure if the catalyst used in either will keep the...

      ^This. :D

      The Virgo is one of the coolest wheels Volvo ever made. They look great on the 700 series too, my Dad and brother ran them on an ‘84 760T.

      Know this thread is a few months old, but do either of you run the Cooper CS5 on the XC60 in particular? Sorry to ask a seemingly dumb question, but with no signatures I wasn’t sure what models you...

      That’s a shame. I can relate, there are definitely good and bad techs out there. :(

      The abrupt stopping is likely due to TOO much vacuum since the pump is running nonstop. Like you said, they do...

      The pressure switches do fail, and the pump will usually run continuously as a fail-safe. How long until it arrives?

      If you’re worried about burning the new pump (which is a legitimate fear),...

      I don’t think there’s much you can do, they’re aware of my dissatisfaction and don’t seem the least bit concerned. Replied to your PM, thanks.

      Yeah well, there’s a reason for that. I’m glad you had a good experience, but many don’t.

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are still good ones out there. When I was a dealer tech, I used to...

      They’re only meant to illuminate when opening the door. ‘14- models have them on continuously as ambient lighting. If you find a way to do this on a ‘13, I’d be interested. Along with the white...
