      That hose goes on all of these cars sooner or later. Were you able to access it from the right side under the intake?

      Headlights look great- first pic with the cut-off really nice.

      I thought that hose was URO or something when I started looking at it. Couldn't believe it was OE when I pulled it out and saw the PN and date code. It was accessible under the starboard side of the intake and using a screw driver through the top to help push things around. I rolled the alternator forward to get space to work and it wasn't bad. The hardest part was getting the oetiker clamp pliers it there.

      The headlights look great. I need to get motivated to get my projector retrofit done.

      I don't know why that particular PCV hose doesn't last longer.

      You have reflectors? I would just throw in some LED bulbs and see if that is acceptable.

      The original PCV hose is plastic not rubber. I've never seen the rubber hose fall apart that way.

      Not throwing LEDs into my aftermarket reflectors at this point, especially when one leaks.

      Yeah, and gas and combustion byproducts. But, modern day polymers should be able to last between PCV service intervals (~100k miles) without falling apart.

      Decided to swap on my 04 folding mirrors today.






      Project was a complete bust. Goal was to get puddle lights, better visibility, and folding mirrors. None of those three occurred. Mirrors don't fold, puddle lights don't work, and the visibility might actually be worse! And the mirror controls in X got flipped.





      Easy to see what the issue is when you compare P80 to P2 side by side.





      I have absolutely no idea what Volvo was thinking with the P2 mirrors. I run my side mirrors with no overlap with the center mirrors as per the SAE guidelines and I can't even aim this driver's mirror far enough out. And the convex portion is useless. The 07+ mirrors at least I could aim that far out but the outside part was still useless. Getting fed up with this misadventure in visibility. I think I am just going to cut off the offending part of the 07 mirror and do whatever I have to to patch it together and make it work. It's probably going to look bad but changing lanes into someone is going to look worse and I'm probably going to eventually do it if I don't fix this.



      Backlights quit in my HU850 lasty ear and I've had another one sitting around that I finally got in. It's from a 07 with AUX so it has the AUX as an input. I don't have AUX but I saved all the wiring and connectors from the car the HU came from. It just plugs into the connector so it should be easy to add. I'll do that at some point but thankfully GROM downgraded back to a stable version of the app last week so it's no longer a priority.










      I love magic erasers








      Console bin was full of garbage.





      Ahhh so much cleaner with the mat.




      Turned out it wasn't all garbage; there were a bunch of Canadian coins in there. And I found a few more in the door pocket that I threw in while I was there. Maybe I will get a metric cluster soon, too





      Installed some better trim that I had from the same car the HU850 came from.













      Saggy A pillar trim. Just so happens that I have a P2 parts car on hand at the moment so I ripped these out. Also if anyone needs parts from a 04 V70 Ruby/Tan NA please let me know cause we're probably scrapping/donating it in about 2 weeks.

      Interesting. I never considered magic eraser for car interior grime removal. I may have to give that a go.

      Neither have I. My wife isn't quite as ruthless with the car interior as I was. Over the last three and a half years, it's beginning to show. A bit of water, say a mist sprayer with that, Jared?

      Also - I see DSTC, folding mirror button, park assist, rear headrest release, ABL button trunk, but what's the last one (third from right)?

      I just get the eraser wet and use it like a sponge. Works great. Gotta scrub a bit harder than a sponge though. And they are slightly abrasive so you gotta be a bit careful with them depending on the surface. Dave how are you just now noticing my magic eraser habit my threads have basically been ads for them ever since I got my first 100-pack last year.

      It probably lights up my mind when I see it, then I promptly forget it a few weeks later. lol

      Forgot to take a general pic of the post-cleaning results yesterday so that was the first thing I did when I got home today.





      And the new A pillar trim from the 04.




      Remember those boxes from the other day?


      I was getting a pretty nasty shake braking on the highway so I decided I would warranty my front rotors. Micrometer didn't really agree with that hypothesis but I'm hoping I was just measuring the wrong spots. It came on after sitting for about a month so nothing else really seems to make sense.





      Guess I need to reload the parts cannon cause that doesn't look so hot.






      Came up with a more peaceful way to remove the rear dust shields






      Hello XC90 dust shield





      Yup more of the toys from those boxes.








      In case anyone wanted to see the difference side by side.








      Cool that looks like stopping.

      Nice. What did the calipers run you? All you needed to do was cut and swap in a new shield?

      For the dust shields yea. They’re $78 a piece otherwise. All bolts up and the stopping power is very noticeable.

      I did the same job on my xc. I was warned to expect a different feel in front end due to additional weight of the front calipers and discs. I did notice this immediately but don’t really notice anymore. What’s it like with S60?

      I didn't notice a difference other than the unbalanced braking front to rear. First time I slammed on these hard on the highway I locked up the fronts at like 85. That was a bit disconcerting. Lots of brake dive too.

      Are you going to replace the fronts with similar, or what's the advantages of XC rears?

      I still think that’s suspension related because these calipers were factory fitted on certain option packaged US and EU cars without a rear upgrade. The 05 T5 that my calipers came from originally and we reverted back to 316s recently didn’t have any abs issues during high speed braking and that was on miserably worn DWS Oshi*ts

      Would the factory have changed the brake bias/proportioning on cars with beefier front brakes? How is this done after the fact?

      No. All 99+ cars are 4 channel independent ABs and there’s individual lines to each caliper. The actual hydraulic block is the same PN all p2s.

      The mirror saga continues.....finally decided I was fed up with this problem this morning and got at the original housing with a much heavier handed approach.



      The turn signal comes back to the red line roughly. The surform was taking forever so I just ran it through the bandsaw.







      Since the inside surface of this plastic shroud or whatever you want to call it is so much closer to the mirror, I had to trim off a bunch more.







      Before I put these back on I decided I would put new turn signal housing in since mine were all cracked up from age and when I wacked the house with the mirror housing because our parking arrangement is stupid and legit I have to hit my spot within about 1" or the door would hit the NA before getting to the first stop in the door check unless the NA goes on the grass. So I grabbed a new pair on ebay for $22......and guess what they were OE!









      As you can see in the first two pictures with the unmodified 07 mirror and 04 mirror, like half of the convex portion is blocked by the mirror housing. Whoever designed these P2 mirror housings must have never read the SAE mirror guidelines because neither of these are anywhere even close to acceptable out of the box if you are following those guidelines. As you can see, field of view is much improved with the modified mirror housing.

      07 housing out of the box:



      04 housing.





      Modified 07 housing. That post at the left edge of the field of view is about even with the back wheel about as far to port of the car as you would expect a car a lane to the left to be.





      It doesn't look ideal but I don't think it's that bad. Looks better than crashing I will probably do something about closing up the hole and making it look decent at some point but that isn't really a priority at the moment.

      Interesting mirror surgery. Like the idea and it looks like it was successful, but I'll leave mine alone...
      I wonder if you were to start all the way over on the door side for a more gradual angle all the way across, if it would be would be less noticeable. Maybe marking the black with a 'waterline' and then using a belt sander type of a setup.
      Wonder if you could sort of make a mold of it to start (before cutting) and then pour a new fill with something and then lightly sand it down to make it factory 'looking'.
      Think your magic erasers would fix this? LOL

      I've got one but don't use it because the foam insert died and gets dusty crap all over my sunglasses. Is there a replacement part? What else could I use?
