      No, my experience is that it isn't. However, if you pull the headliner out of the scrapyard car, you can pull the whole length of cable out and disconnect it where it attaches to the primary harness...

      Uro seats didn't last long on my car. But then, blue box didn't either.

      Corteco makes a lot of rubber bushings for European cars from what I've seen, and have a good reputation overall. They make engine mounts for Mercedes, for instance. I wouldn't hesitate to give them...

      Agreed. Find a video. Popping the side panels off is a pain and way more difficult than it deserves to be. It helps a lot to actually see how they come off.

      Yep, it was almost exactly a year ago. Everything on the strut was brand new, down to the nuts and bolts. I didn't put a ton of miles on it, I would guess 3,000 or so. I used Sachs 30776718 for...

      The OE springs most certainly fit very tight when the strut is assembled. You have to compress them down quite a bit just to get them to clear the top of the strut.

      Yep, one and the same. When I sold it they were starting to lift the cap and had very small rips starting to develop. Pretty annoying since I figured they would be the highest quality out there (then...

      And use new bolts. Don't loosen or remove a subframe bolt unless you're ready to replace it for exactly this reason. These are torque to yield bolts and as such they stretch. They're only designed to...

      The Volvo blue box mounts didn't last a year before starting to tear for me, FWIW.

      It sounds like you ran into an Oetiker clamp. You can remove them by working a flathead screwdriver into the protruding ear and working it loose. Once they're off they can't be reused. You can buy...

      Those were in the back cargo area roof near the antenna unit? I've pulled the antenna out of 3 XC90s and I don't recall seeing those before. Maybe they were there for some sort of dealer-installed...

      It is worthwhile to replace that side engine mount, but if money is a concern you can skip it for now. It's not at all difficult to replace later. Come to think of it, the front mount could possibly...

      Correct. If you don't do anything with the control arms the subframe would basically be spring-loaded and would pop off as soon as you unbolt it. Considering how much it weighs and how much tension...

      If you can post a picture of what the bolt looks like I could dig around in my Volvo bolt bucket and probably find you a replacement if you want.
