Hey everyone. Iíve been on Swedespeed for a while, but normally in the P80 forums. After getting interest in selling my 850 R, I figured it was time to move to a newer, smaller Volvo. I had been looking for manual cars FOREVER, and there were very few in my area, if any. Finally I happened upon a M66 2011 C70 with only 91,000 miles, in my area, with a book of records. I went to look at the car on a Thursday, and bought it the next day. Big thanks to C30 in WI, the previous owner, he took excellent care of this vehicle and I plan to do the same.
Here is a quick hatch photo I took after getting back with the car:
This is my first manual car (although Iíve driven friendís cars before) so any tips on how to drive these cars to avoid clutch wear would be appreciated. I donít want to do a clutch anytime soon lol.
Immediately I noticed the cabin air temp sensor was super loud, so I took it apart and blew it out, and after reinstalling it, itís pretty quiet. After that, I went to work on removing the piece of paper that was stuck in the CD drive. After getting it out, reassembling the console, and testing it, Iím happy to report it works perfectly.
Is there anything I can do to remove the green color from the CD slot?
Things to do on the car: I feel as though this car needs motor mounts, the shifts are a little clunky unless you completely baby the clutch. It also makes some good clunks over bumps, donít know if these are related or they are suspension based. Also would like to figure out how to get these spots off of the trim plastic. Any thoughts are appreciated!
