      We love to see people opening up the ABS module to find out what is actually wrong vs sending to XEMODEX. Not that XEMODEX is bad or anything, in fact they're great. But I've been a fan of fixing your own solder joints for years.

      My 08' MacBook Pro with the wonderful self-desoldering graphics card is on it's 3rd motherboard bake lol.

      The problem is opening up the module cleanly. If I ever need mine done, they'll go to Midwest just to avoid opening them up.

      My white R I opened it up and got it fixed enough that at least the speedometer works, but ABS and TRACS are still on, but I made a mess of the housing in the process.

      It's upside down and (mostly) out of sight. A half hour of my time is cheaper than the cost to have it done for me.


      I'm busy working on wiring harness stuff, while I wait for some parts to show up. I should be able to get the oil pan on the engine this weekend.


      I'm also debating in whether I want to sell this K24, or keep it for future use.



      I'm installing a 16T for now, but may upgrade things later.

      Another thing that I'm rolling through my head is to change the timing belt, while I have it all nice an easy on the stand. When we swapped the motor in the wife's GLT, I pulled the 10K timing belt stuff I'd installed on it and stuck it on the shelf.
      The current stuff on my engine has roughly 40K on it (Don't know exact, because the previous owner wasn't super clear), and it looks to be legit. The belt doesn't look overly worn, and the water pump (HEPU) looks about the same vintage. Even if I just swap the belt, and check the pulleys, I should be miles ahead.

      get a Volvo belt and an Aisin water pump with a Volvo gasket.

      The proper resistors showed up today, so solder time.



      Just need to button the ECU back up and that is ready.

      Spent some time on the wiring harness today. For simplicity's sake, I'm just going to leave the chassis side of the TCM connector in place. No real need to remove it, honestly. I do have the entire engine side removed. Just need to wiring for the back-up lights.
      Right now I'm just waiting on spare harness bits so I can add the COP wiring and button this all back together.

      Since I'm currently in a holding pattern waiting on wiring bits, I worked on buttoning up the bottom of the engine today.

      Got the new pick-up installed.


      Then I got the RN pan in place, along with a new filter.


      Next I bolted the oil cooler up and reinstalled the oil level sensor.


      Since there is no wiring connection on my car for the sensor, I got a few dimensions and will probably come up with a blank-off plate for that in the future.
      The Volvo oil cooler hoses are in good shape, so I can reuse those.

      I flipped the engine back over and removed the N water pipe in prep for the proper RN one for my set up and did a little more cleaning.

      Are you absolutely sure you want to get rid of the sensor? Is there a way to wire it up so you at least have some way of knowing if your oil is all gone from the engine before itís too late?

      Itís a quality not quantity sensor.

      I've survived this long w/o one, so...

      Unrelated note.

      The spindles and brackets are back from powdercoat.



      I told him to use whatever, and he had this color left over from a previous project for me. Not that they'll be seen much, anyway.

      Thatís actually a cool color, reminds me of what they used to paint the vintage Saabs.
