      Went for a road trip yesterday to visit a fellow board member CapeMayXC70(Patrick). He hooked me up with a replacement fender. Thank you brother!

      While I was there I had to convince him to sell me the sub he was on the fence of selling.

      He hooked me up with the one thing that has been bugging me since I bought the car, a nose plug.


      I look forward to spending more time hanging out. His R is insane! He also has a killer XC70 that his son drives. Totally cool dad! My dad gave me a 66 VW 1300 to drive back in the day.

      Reduced Engine Performance! What? I only left her in the driveway for two weeks while I recovered from the Flu and then Strep. She got angry. Ran VIDA and the Boost Pressure Sensor is bad. Hoped on FCP Euro and ordered the Bosch unit for 23.87 instead of $128 for the Volvo Brand. This should fix what ails her.

      I pulled the Boost sensor. It’s original. 4/11/05

      This should send the message to my neighbor to be more careful when backing up.

      Solved the Reduced Engine Performance. My throttle body went south so I replaced that with the gasket and pins. No more error and pickup is nice and smooth now.

      Finally it has been warm enough to put on new shoes. Love the Brembo’s. So easy to replace. I put on Volvo Pads with Brembo Rotors from FCPEuro.

      Tear down on the front end. Finally have a few warm days to replace the fender that my neighbor was kind enough to hit.
      Rebuilt the fog lights, one had a crack where the plastic cap screws on and will put them back in.

      Have to put my (re) build on hold. I’m not allowed to buy any after market upgrades till I get rid of this stack of parts for my summer ride.

      Finally pulled and replaced the fender.
      Jacked the car, removed tire and insert.

      Removed the 9 bolts holding the fender along with the side bracket.

      Fit the replacement fender and adjusted while tightening each bolt. Put new side bracket on.

      Put the tire back on and lowered.

      Tomorrow reinstall the front bumper assembly.

      Thank you Patrick. I couldn’t have been able to replace it without your help. Next I work on putting in the sub. They say it should be pre-wired since it is a 05.

      I love spring time. I finally get to work on the caR.

      Don't assume it's pre-wired. Everyone told me my 07 was pre-wired. Nope! Had to order the harness. That being said, installing the sub & harness was total cake. After hearing it you'll probably wonder why you waited so long to install.

      Thanks Caboose. I’ve come to realize the R is different in every package. That is why I love this caR. Each one is different. Luckily I have the wiring harness.

      Put the sub in. First remove the tire, battery bracket and jack.

      Put the battery cover on along with the battery hold down bracket.

      Put tire in with smaller screw unit

      Remove rear cover and put in sub with bracket.

      Put cover on sub and google how to install the wiring harness

      Where does the jack holder go? I can’t figure it out.

      It's a lot easier to fit it if you remove both covers. I also had to trim the sound deadening material.

      I agree. I found the instructions and they said that in one of the steps. They also mentioned trimming it. I propped the back one up with a stick.

      The easiest way to remove the back one is to lift it a couple of inches and pull it towards yourself. It comes right off.

      This car is so easy to work on the interior. Much easier than climbing into the trunk on an s60R. No offense to the sedan brothers. I am a wagon man.

      I just ordered the Mototec/Eurosport Tuning Touring exhaust. It is on sale today for just $639 I just couldn’t resist. It will be shipped tomorrow. Psych!
