      When I did mine I used a good bit of grease to lubricate and just smashed em in with a hammer. It is tight, they're pretty tough to get in all the way.

      Looks like it went through. I just got a shipping notification an hour ago. To be honest a part of me was hoping that it would turn out like you said, because dropping 450 bucks on two pieces of...

      I keep hearing that these are NLA but when I search for them they appear readily available. I actually just ordered the pair for my car. Went through no problem. My rubber is in a much worse state...

      After driving around today it's clear that replacing the sensor actually did not fix anything. When I started the car from dead cold this morning the sensor was reading 33F while the ambient temp was...

      That's what I was thinking. I ordered a 300mm long screwdriver to try and get to this. If it doesnt work I will wait until I do my FMIC install later this spring, and just go easy on the car until...

      Yes, I realize that. :) I already bought the new sensor and happened to find this thread.
      Looking at the picture, would it be possible to use a really long T25 screwdriver to get in there?

      Absolutely! Especially with the baffle in the Volvo head that forces you to pour the oil super slow. With that funnel I can pour in like two full quarts at a time.

      How much turbo lag is normal?

      I just recently replaced my TCV and the vacuum lines that go to it. The main reason was to fix an overboosting issue, but I was also hoping it might improve the turbo performance a bit.

      Steering wheel nut for sure. Mine was loose just like that when I bought my SR. Easy fix, just pop the airbag off and tighten the big 19mm(?) nut.
