      The original windshield work is the issue here and they gave it a lifetime warranty. If they admitted the failure was under warranty, they should uphold the promise to repair it. Presumably that...

      I understood him each time. Better to help and thank people, rather than pick apart their words.

      It shouldn’t be advertised with the Volvo part number and different pic if the seller is doing that. But if the exact size from Volvo no longer exists, what‘s the alternative? Change the airbag,...

      The original blue looks like paint around the embossed “Volvo”. It has a thin clear film on top that fell off mine two days after I bought the car used. It was only a matter of time before the blue...

      No, just poor quality for a couple of years. If you bought your car used and it has a polydome emblem instead of flat decal, it probably came from Dave Barton.

      Volvo had a similar issue with front...

      Interesting. The engine cover is to prevent dust and moisture on all the wiring and electrical components. Many say the foam insulation reduces noise. I imagine another benefit is to prevent rodents...

      According to other car forums, the usual solution is to apply hood insulation material to the inside of the plastic cover. Unfortunately, the Volvo foam is not flat and has contours for a custom fit....

      Everywhere but North America the oil capacity would be specified in liters. A quart is 0.946 liter. If there is a misprint in the manual that only changed the word “liters” to “quarts”, the...

      I believe there are three different sizes corresponding to 8mm, 9mm, and 10mm. Two or possibly all three had the same part number. When you give your VIN to the dealer, they will know which one fits...

      Fuel pressure sensor questions

      A few weeks ago I replaced the VVT solenoid after CEL error codes. I know the VVT regulates oil flow into the cylinders as needed. Today, I got a CEL and P0088 for “fuel pressure too high bank 1”....

      That’s what I did, but in reverse. I got a steering wheel for my S80 from an XC60. In fact OP can have my old steering wheel. Not bad but has some scratches on the leather.

      Are you referring to handling, stiffness or comfort? Many S80 owners think it rides a little soft, so stiffen the rear with the IPD sway bar. For comfort and noise, tires make a big difference. At 10...
