      is there an alternate solution to fixing up the battery cables/terminals other than replacing? (oem ~$200 for both cables). i suppose the cables are still good, really just the ends/terminals that are in rough shape...

      FCP has a universal “Repair Terminal - Genuine Volvo 30656679” for $3.40 that allegedly will fit, but there’s no picture for it. I’d send them an email to confirm. https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/rep...l-30656679-1-1

      If you need to go with replacing the cables, it looks like AutohausAZ has OEM cables for around $56: https://www.autohausaz.com/pn/OE-9456836

      found a picture of the "repair terminal" on eEuro, and i have no idea what that actually is ?
      https://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/437...inal-30656679/

      any reason why i couldn't use a (gasp) universal battery terminal connector in this case? having a hard time finding just the connectors and would prefer not to replace the cables. guess i could hit up pick-n-pull

      Also does anyone know what the insulated pipe is called that goes from the ecu housing to the firewall? Ecu lower pipe duct?? Mine looks kinda crappy but I'm guessing it's just the insulation, the pipe itself may be fine.

      You are correct and seeing everything, it is just the clips. They are just a bit longer travel than you might generally expect and there is a separate 'sleeve' between the bottom in the pic and the lid. The sections are fit pretty tight even without the clips. The upper part of the w/washer reserve just pulls off and will make it a bit easier. Take that off. There is a filter accessible there when you do that you might clean. You'd never know it was there, it just pulls out. Here's a pic:

      The ecu housing is still giving me a hell of a time... Decided to take a break from that and start on the brakes. From one problem to the next. Looks like the PO stripped the nuts on the hard lines. Any suggestions?? I know everyone upgrades the hoses to stainless steel, but how much are replacement hard lines? With the lip at the end you can't just replace the nut..

      Vise grips ? Theoretically they shouldn't be that hard to get off even if stripped

      Good jy item. The trick is to apply a sharp force so it shocks the nut not slow pressure that bends the monel. Couple heat cycles is good insurance too

      Mopar atf 4. I get a good deal on it, it’s classic red atf but full synthetic at $2 a quart. Been running it in 4 cars for at least 200k combined miles (74k on my own personal t5a) without a single issue. I’m draining and filling every 10k or alternating oil change interval.

      0w40 hits all the specs and temp range you’d see.

      Replacing the PCV today... Definitely harder than i thought. Getting the manifold off was extremely difficult for me. Hard to get my big arms underneath to get those two pesky bolts. Also highly recommend ratcheting wrenches for this task!

      Got it all installed, just putting it back together now. But something seems to be in the way of setting the manifold back in all the way. Any ideas?

      Yep - didnt realize the bracket underneath was adjustable. After literally checking everything else, i noticed i had thr bracket on the higher end, so moved it down and it fit perfectly. Sometimes its the littlest things that throw you off!

      You don't really even need that bracket. The ME7 cars don't have it from the factory and those have an ETM hanging off of them.

      Next dilemma - i was about to reinstall the fuel injectors when i noticed one tip was not like the rest. If you look closely you can see the little plastic red piece appears to be broken. What is this and what do i need to do about it?

      i found a bosch fuel injector rebuild kit online. it was cheap enough to check it out, so i ordered it. might as well try to repair the injector while i still have the fuel rail off. also, i noticed the PCV kit i got only had enough seals for one per injector. do the top seals need to be replaced or is it not as important as the bottom seals??

      If your bosch kit comes with 10 orings i would use those instead of the ones that came with the kit. If not i would order another five orings since your rebuilding the injectors

      well i'm basically convinced the PO super-glued and/or welded the hard line bolt on the rear left brake caliper... i've attempted every trick in the book to get it out, and now it's just a bolt with no head remaining and a hole drilled thru it. -___- what does one do at this point? i suppose i could continue drilling out the remaining bolt, clean out any shavings that fell down into the piston, and examine the threads to see if a new bolt would not leak. i don't feel super great about this option, so i'll probably end up just buying a new caliper. i just wanted to avoid the purchase for now so i could replace all four calipers at the same time.

      just get a new caliper; probably needs a refresh, anyway. paint it before you put it on.

      and i don't even want to get started on the fact that some of the fittings are 8mm, 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 14mm, and 15mm....

      do the original rear calipers have 10mm or 11mm fittings? i believe the fronts are 10mm, but the rears currently on the car have 11mm, and both options are available to purchase. do i just buy 11mm again since that is what the rear right has, or does it even matter?

      Get what's already on the car, or get the correct PN from VIDA if unsure.

      Hey what's your opinions on a salvage title car? Looking at adding another project, but hesistant to pull the trigger. I'm guessing it wouldn't take much for an insurance company total out a 25 year old car. If it's just body damage, is it worth fixing up? Will future buyers pass on a V70R that's fixed up right but comes with salvage/rebuilt title? Or would you just use it as a parts car?

      Depends entirely on what the damage is and what the legal requirements and insurance regulations are in your jurisdiction for salvage title cars. A salvage title car will always be worth less than a car with a clean title of equivalent condition.

      i don't know how y'all spend all this time working on cars AND taking pictures AND posting excellent write-ups!! i'm having a hard enough time getting the work done that i forget to take pictures and write-up what i do. i'd like to do better at that so i have a good log of everything i've done.

      recent purchases:

      *replacement flare nuts and bleeder screws all around (not easy to track down)
      *bubble flaring kit
      *pcv kit
      *oil filler cap gasket
      *cabin air filter
      *k&n air intake
      *brake rotors/pads
      *magnetic oil drain plug
      *bosch distributor rotor/cap
      *bougicord spark plug wires
      *genuine volvo spark plugs
      *fuel filter
      *genuine volvo thermostat
      *aisin water pump w/new bolts
      *bosch parking brake shoes & new hardware
      *ecu air duct cooling hose
      *coolant expansion tank w/new hoses
      *contitech serpentine belt
      *contitech timing belt
      *timing belt tensioner/pulley
      *ATE brake hardware (rear)
      *steel brake lines (front)
      *oil line gaskets
      *turbo inlet/outlet hoses
      *throttle cable
      *volvo coolant

      *ATE typ 200 brake fluid
      *tcv silicone hoses
      *sylvania ultrastar h7 headlight bulbs
      *fuel injector rebuild kit

      work done to this point:
      *replaced pcv system
      *replaced spark plugs/wires
      *removed all brake calipers/rotors (had to cut a couple of the lines)
      *painted calipers gloss black
      *removed fuel injectors for cleaning
      *replaced upper/lower radiator hoses
      *removed throttle cable

      wow, when i type it out it doesn't seem like i have done very much yet! this weekend i will be refreshing the fuel injectors, installing the k&n intake, replacing serp belt, installing coolant tank, replacing water pump, installing thermostat, installing headlight bulbs, replacing the and finishing up the brakes and adding fresh fluid.

      will try to take more pictures!

      Looks pretty good. What brand coolant tank and timing belt tensioner/idler? Conti belts not recommended....Continental has admitted that there are counterfeit belts out there. Only Genuine Volvo or Gates belts for me.

      I'd look at the LED headlight bulbs. And grab some ECE lenses while you're at it.

      What's the rear diff oil for

      Just making sure people are actually reading this! Haha jk the rear diff oil is for the wife's Expedition. Was just listing items from my order sheet without paying attention.

      You think FCP could be selling counterfeit belts?? I would think they got their products directly from the manufacturers.

      And as much as I would love to put genuine volvo parts on everything - my skill level and budget for this project don't really justify it (yet). I know the purists will disagree, but hopefully this all goes smoothly and i can step it up with a V70R next.
