      Hopefully someone can help me here. I hit a deer with my 2004 XC70 with factory bi-xenon headlights and I destroyed one of the headlights. The light output always sucked anyways, so I bought a set...

      Tell me about these e codes please. I do want improved lighting to the point I'd rather not have to have a driving light to see with my high beams on.

      Hey, thanks! I didn't see that one on eBay, only the passenger side ones.


      But in all seriousness, does anyone know if I can switch to halogen headlights (both sides) without doing anything...
    4. I hit a deer and need a new headlight (factory HID)

      I can't seem to find any driver's side HID headlights for my 2004 XC70. I'm fine with converting both lights to halogen IF I can even do that. I'd almost prefer it, actually. Am I able to do that...

      I need new rear springs

      2004 XC70 with 280,400 miles. As far as I know, the rear springs are original. I've replaced every single front end component in the past two years, but I've never messed with the rears before. I...

      I replaced the ball joints and lower control arms with the Moog 4 piece kit from FCP Euro. It was pretty straightforward and easy after searching these forums. I decided to take the whole steering...

      New plugs in and fired right up. No smoke or weird valve noise. Turbo sounds fine, too. I took it for a spin and it seemed to have normal power and no strange noises. No CEL or trouble codes...

      I talked to a buddy that works for Euro Motorcars (Mercedes mechanic) and he's going to lend me his inspection camera on Tuesday. The spark plugs probably won't be here from FCP before then, anyways.

      Spark plug 2 looked a little weird so I brushed it off and took a closeup. I don't think it melted any.

      I'm quite happy with this exhaust. It's not noticeably louder than stock in the car with the windows up, but it has a nice low growl outside. Installation was simple and easy.

      The link doesn't work anymore, but the product is still there at that price. Just search for exhaust parts for your car and it'll show up.



      I just ordered one about 2 minutes ago.

      Transmission removal guide

      I've been fighting with my 2004 XC70 for over a year now. It started with a driver's side axle shaft that sheared off at the tripod cup when I tried to remove it. I bought a used transmission and...

      I went to swap bulbs today without taking the headlights out of the car. It's doable, but more difficult. I started by taking the passenger side out. The bulb gently bumped the housing on the way...

      I've had this issue pop up a couple times over the last year where my passenger side HID will cut out, and often come back on a few seconds later. I get the "Low beam failure" message on the dash...

      If it's broken/split/missing, you might have a clogged system. It's not a bad idea to replace the whole PCV system. If you simply replace the broken hose, it's pretty straightforward.
