      My friend made a tool, so I may just borrow his when I do it. Itís 120k or 10 years on these cars right?

      Also just to ask one last time, the camber on the rear wheels of this car shouldnít be an issue right? Or is it eventually going to cause the tires to cup?

      The 303 rubber seal restore is coming in next week, as is the back to black, so I plan to try that stuff on the trim and seals.

      Started the day off right by restoring the window trim. Someone on the forum recommended masking off the car, then using a magic eraser to remove the rougher surface of the trim (effectively sanding it a little), cleaning off the residue left from that, and then applying the 303.



      After two applications after drying completely, and wiping off excess, I am happy to say it has done something, and we'll see how it holds up in the coming days to stop the trim from "shedding" again.

      Making some small progress, I now have the headlights close to my standards, I'd love for some brighter but recommendations for them, HID wise. Also discovered these cars are good for unloading groceries in the rain.



      Finally got my plates! Although the plate office messed up my order, they were supposed to be custom plates! And you can't call them other than Tuesdays before 4pm....



      Took a really nice picture of her too, thought I'd share. A/C fix and perhaps a windshield replacement are in the near future.

      I attempted to re-shim the A/C clutch yesterday, and it didnít go well. My clutch puller tool was not doing anything, and when I used screwdrivers, I bent the clutch and pulley up. Now the pulley sounds wonderful, so Iím going to replace the compressor.

      Any ideas on if you have to get oil with the compressor when you recharge the system? And how many pounds of R134a do these use?

      Look on Ebay for a clutch. I got a new (non OEM) clutch for around $60 and it works fine.

      Good idea. Sadly, I think there is actual damage to the compressor, so me and a buddy are going to install the new one next week.

      Some good news: I cleaned one of the exhaust tips with some nice looking results. So at least the rear end will look a bit nicer!

      To maintain the SS exhaust tips, just buy SS spray cleaner, same stuff you would use for SS kitchen sinks, etc.,. spray on, let sit, wipe off. If its' bad as yours was, scotchbrite w/ the SS spray cleaner will do it. Very little effort required.

      Iíll grab some stainless steel cleaner, thanks for the tip, lol.

      In the meantime, how do I get this weird staining off the hatch glass that surrounds the V O L V O letters?

      So my solution for the seats currently is gaffers tape, to stop it from getting worse. However this tape unsticks itself, even though it matches the vinyl perfectly. Does anyone know a good way to get this stuff to stick to the seat? Or should I just look at black duck tape?

      Welp, after trying to fix my AC clutch and lowering the car off the lift, my dumb ass backed it straight into a shop wall.



      Messed up the bumper, reflector, and taillight. I have a new taillight on the way already, any ideas on how to pop out this dent in the bumper?

      Heat gun. Should pop out (mostly) if you do it while its fresh.... you need to get behind it though, so I think bumper has to come off to get that high up.

      I wouldn't think so - eitehr way, the bumper needs to come off. Push the indent back out from the inside, pour the boiling water on it to make it supple, can't hurt

      Try using a bit of white distilled vinegar. Straight up in a spray bottle. Spray on and let sit for 30-45 seconds and then use a microfiber towel.

      So it somehow popped out on it's own in the sunlight, however there's still a noticeable crease, how can I get this out if that's possible?

      Haha, I got your point as soon as I looked at it. Iím family with the old Toyota Camry bumper dent removal, I just didnít know if a boiling pot of water would hurt the bumper on these cars.

      My real concern is that crease, I donít even know if that will come out.

      If you get to it sooner than later you MIGHT get lucky. Ehhhh......but more than likely youll see some residual. But then again youll only know once you give it a go.

      Got the replacement taillight. Got that on, and then to inspect the bumper cover I decided to take it off.



      BIG MISTAKE. How screwed am I?

      Okay, so it cleaned up better than expected and the bumper actually fits fine now that itís been refitted.



      Is that vent near the dents removable? Iím gonna try to pull some of those out if it is.

      Dang. How fast did you accelerate into the wall??

      Should be able to get much of that inner fender damage out if you remove the vent - should be just clipped into the panel

      Less than 10 mph if you can believe it. Guess it crumpled easy.

      I was thinking about trying a stud welder and trying to pull it out that way? I donít know what tool to use to get it out of the inner fender once I get that vent off.

      Without sophisticated body shop tools, a slide-hammer is probably the easiest. That is creased pretty sharply, so may not come out clean at all. If the bumper fits properly, may be better to leave it alone. Having said that, just knowing it is there, would bug the crap out of me if it were my car.

      Yeah thatís my thing. So I may just get or borrow a stud welder, and use a slide hammer bang it out at least more straight.

      Got the A/C working again after a pulley + clutch replacement. Working great after a recharge.

      Upon inspection, this seal was leaking. Seems to be transmission fluid, does anyone know what this is and how difficult it is to fix?



      I got a nice little roller shot on my road trip today from my brother in my 850, pretty cool!

      Right diff / axle seal. Stick & auto versions are different. Need to pull the right axle to do that, of course.

      Is it a pain to replace after pulling the axle? Or does it just press in with a large socket.

      I don't know if the auto trans has a seat that will limit how far you can insert the seal, or if it will potentially fall beyond the seal area of the axle. I typically use a large socket that ensures contact is only with the outer rim of the seal and tap it in gently, but that doesn mean being careful about maintaining an even insertion depth, which is what the factory seal installer with center guide would achieve.

      Quicksilver Saga, 2011 C30 M66 Revival

      Made my first small upgrade to this car, better headlights! I used to use Sylvania ZxE in my cars, but when I found out how much better (and cheaper) these Phillips crystal visions are, I wanted to try Ďem out.




      One of these nights Iíll post a down-road pic of them. The old bulbs in the car were mismatched, I didnít even notice until removing them.



      A/C was fixed prior to an up-north road trip, and it works great. Gotta remind myself to replace the cabin filter though.

      Grabbed some nice pictures while there:





      Figured it was about time to stop using gaffers tape to keep the seat tears from getting worse and addressed those with an amazon repair kit, not too shabby all considering. Still drying so they need to be rubbed down to match afterwards.
