      Thank you for the replies!

      I think I may have figured out what’s happened though, part pending. It’s a partial hope, partial logic.

      My car is a 2006 Volvo S40 T5. It takes alternator ‘A’.

    4. 06 S40 T5 AWD - Alternator Belt Alignment Issues

      Hi there,

      Any chance someone with a T5 could show me a photo of the belt alignment? Alternator to AC. Mine looks like it's off 4mm & keeps shredding through belts at an alarming rate. We're...

      Hi there!

      Hi there!

      So I’ve blown the motor, long story, but I’m looking to swap a used one in.

      06 S40 T5 AWD Manual Cam Seal

      Hi there,

      So it looks like my S40 is starting to feel a little sorry for itself.

      What appears to have happened, is the PCV hasn't been done, then weakened the cam seal at the back. Therefore,...

      Thank you all for the replies! Wheels are bought, at a wicked price because they turned out to be replicas. Condition isn't perfect, but no curb damage. It's ok, I planned on painting them anyway.

      Hi there,

      I've found an awesome set of Volvo rims locally! But, they are 16". Will that work on my S40 T5 AWD 6 Speed? From research, they are sold with 17" & I am worried about clearing the front...

      Sunroof Swap

      Managed to source a whole sunroof replacement for my 2001 XC70. Glass, frames, motors - everything. Not sure what year the donor car was though.

      Can you foresee any issues?

      Thank you.

      Sounds perfect to me! My only worry is that 01 models are known to have the gearboxes made of cheese. Not really any great swaps I'm aware of either (would love a manual).
