      I periodically get this same MIL code and had bought the part to replace it. Unfortunately, the installed part is held in place by a captured nut which (on my car) seems to spin freely preventing the...

      The safety switch should also let the car start in Neutral. If Park isn't working reliably, you can try that as well rather than returning the gear lever to Park.

      With a car of this weight, front end stuff wears out pretty reliably. My 05 V8 has 115k on it and probably needs control arm bushings and ball joints, and maybe tie rod ends. It's a bit clunky when...

      Welcome to Volvo and to SwedeSpeed!

      1. I don't have a T6, but the stories I've read have pointed to the replacement transmissions being the same units (i.e. not an upgraded or strengthened...

      Usually, the multi-disc sets are broken into east/west divisions and you have to switch them if you take a trip out of the area. There's lots of weird stuff with these discs, but the linked forum...

      Yes. Or, if you habitually apply the brake, pull the release handle before beginning the service. The parking brake is a drum type and the inside of the rear rotor is the braking surface. With the...

      I found the lamps and the uppers, but I didn't see the wiring harness listed or any "kit", but I was at work so I didn't dig for too long. Can you elaborate on which harnesses need to be added?

      To update, my shudder is improving gradually as I drive the car. I don't know if it's related in any way to the cooldown we've experienced over the last few weeks, but the troublesome shifts seem to...

      Don't you have to mess with the parking brake to get the rear rotors off? Maybe that's when something happened. I mentioned in another thread that I rarely use my parking brake, but that the pads...

      I almost never use my parking brake, just because I'm always parked on mostly flat ground. Nevertheless, there was a terrible grinding noise that started in the rear of the XC, so I assumed it was...

      I'm just starting to experience some 2-3 shuddering a few thousand miles after a transmission fluid flush. (2005 V8 with 107k) It's really unnerving, to say the least, to feel that ragged shift. No...
