      I'm no longer a xc90 owner, but I'll throw this in for future tech.

      If the rotors are stuck on, use a bolt and a nut through one of the caliper mounting holes. Put the bolt through, and thread...

      Towing BIG... What you got?

      We tow a 4300lbs ski boat. I don't enjoy the Volvo for it. Plenty of power, but the tail end feels loose.

      Best damn tool, a volt meter.

      That's good to know. I ordered a new belt and when I do that, I'll replace the bearings in the tensioner pulley.

      V8 idler pulley replacement

      My idler pulley started making a funny noise at 126k on a 06 V8. There are three pulleys. One on the tensioner and two bolted to the timing cover. Volvo wants 60 each for the bolted ones and 300+ for...

      517.

      You're assuming that it had the right amount initially, and that you can measure liters perfectly. Not worth the risk personally.

      Good bye XC90

      All you need is a 7mm Allen wrench, having it mounted in a socket makes it easier. If you're just doing pads, no further disassembly required.

      Volvo child booster seats.

      Great seats. Our twins, age 4, 38 lbs, use then and never complain.

      They also don't tear up the upholstery like hard plastic based.

      XC90 Off Road Capable?

      I would mod your trunk to carry a real jack, a couple of 18"x18" 3/4" plywood pieces, a flat shovel, a 20 ft strap and a 12v air compressor. Now you're better equipped than 90% of beach go'ers.

      Tire change time

      Please don't use a cinderblock. Bad bad idea.

      Your floor jack will be fine. The xc90 may be tall but lacks articulation.
