      This is a work in progress. After breaking it up, some sections look a little lacking. This is good and bad, I need some volunteers and helpers to populate some of these sections. I can't remember and neither have I read all the topics and interesting threads out there.-DevolvR

      Hi. Newbie here, links for part numbers/ tech manual partial are 404. Do you have links or knowledge of where I can get full parts lists/specs and full repair manual for v70r 2004?

      DevolvR: Fixed. No, unfortunately I don't. Try posting a thread asking if anyone has information regarding this. As for a Parts catalog, Tasca Parts Online may be one of the most extensive parts/price lists available. http://www.tascaparts.com/

      VIDA is what you're looking for... Which has the repair manual and parts catalog - though Tasca is more accessible for parts and obviously you can see prices there.

      Hi. I need to replace the waste gate on my 2005 V70R M6, but I'm stumped where to find exactly what turbo I have. Any help would be immensely appreciated, Thanks.

      Well. The part/serial number should be on it, that's hard to see though. The Rs i believe all have the same Turbo stock. With the only difference being the v-clamp that connects the turbo to the OTE pipe.

      How about angle gear. I used S60 2.3T5 before and now I'm gonna buy a S60R. Some people mentioned that angle gear is a chronic problem but I have no information about. Can anyone feedback please?

      S60R / V70R Modification & Repair Index

      Submitting this here because I couldn’t find a comprehensive write-up and since the R sub is more active.

      I put my sport kit side skirts on a couple days ago in about 2 hours, I was able to re-use most of the clips and substitute with some of my spare junkyard clips but if you can’t here’s what you’ll need:

      - rivets for the wheel wells: oem is 10mm head with 6mm shaft (before expanding)
      - Push pin retainers for the undercarriage
      - Either round or rectangle retainers for the sills

      For tools I used:
      - H4 hex bit to disengage the plastic push pin rivets securing the undercarriage
      - flat pry bar to remove the metal rivets in the wheel well (and to extract the plastic push rivets) since I don’t have whatever tool removes rivets
      - T25 to secure the wheel well ends with some interior screws from my junk yard stash since I didn’t have big enough rivets to replace the originals

      Removing the stock rocker panels:


      Pop these bad boys off by hammering the H4 into the center to disengage the pin and the claw end of the hammer to pinch and yank them out.


      For the pins that I pushed too far and got stuck in the metal of the car (you’ll know what I mean when you’re down there) I used tiny drill bits to poke around inside and drag the pin out of the hole.


      Pry and pry again, the front ends have 1 on the side and 1 on the bottom, rears have 2 on the side and 1 on the bottom. My 04 skirts did not have the bottom hole for the mud flap / wheel well liner to anchor to so I didn’t add one, so far nothing has fallen off.

      Installing the sport kit skirts:

      Not sure about the 05-07, but my 04 skirts each only needed 2 door/trim fasteners (front and rear), and a peg attached to the skirt slotted into one of the holes beneath the b-pillar to hold it in place while you shove the skirts onto the fasteners (or attach the fasteners to the skirts and just pop the whole thing in).

      Since I was able to re-use the push pin fasteners I placed 5 underneath on each side. There are holes for 8 but really 3 was enough to feel secure.



      Now since I didn’t have rivets big enough to fill the holes to secure the ends of the skirts to the mud flaps / wheel wells, I used T25 interior screws, I had a ton left over from my dash/center console swap and these did the trick with no wiggle play or shifting. Another benefit of using the screws was that I didn’t need to take any wheels off for the install, I just used the bit stuck in the little socket adapter and turned by hand.


      Rear left aide


      Front driver side, from the perspective of the ground to show the semi-hidden bottom rivet placement.

      The results:
