  2. So I had a mechanic take a look at it - the only codes that came back were the suspension module, which was expected because he hasn't had the SUM installed and calibrated yet but it will come with the part, and the siren code. Mechanic drove it and said it performed as expected and felt good.

  4. Earlier
  5. The error code should have specified which cylinder had the misfire. Before buying an injector, I would move the coil to a different cylinder and see if the error code moves with the coil. As for coils, not all are the same length. I suggest these: https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo-ignition-coil-c30-c70-s40-s60-v50-v70-30713417
  6. Find an independent Volvo shop with the necessary diagnostic equipment to see what codes it might be detected, which will point to more repair work. They should also do an inspection. Mine has 150,000 miles on it and I have complete confidence in it, but I've also taken good care of it. Looks like a lot of good repairs recently. I have a friend with over 350,000 miles on theirs and it is still running great so they will last a long time. GLM
  7. Found out a little more about the car. It also has had these done recently: Wheel bearings Control arms Stabilizer links inner and out ends Left and right front shocks
  8. It is auto with atacama interior. I'm really thinking of paying for it to be looked at by a shop or dealer before buying would this be worthwhile? Best way to make sure the AWD is working if there are no visual indicators?
  9. manual or auto? make sure the AWD is working. what interior?
  10. Sorry, the phones playing up! Anyway, Hi, I've just picked up an 05reg V70r 6gt Its a really nice car, well maintained with lots of history and near mint bodywork. The test drive went very well and I bought the car, however on the 250m drive home I had the opportunity to really give it a work out and I noticed a missfire accompanied with a CEL when accelerating very hard. The car had plugs last t service 2 months ago but checking through the history I can see it's never had Coils so I figured this would be a fine place to start. question is, Does the R need a specific type? I was looking at Bosch 413660220 Will this be suitable? Many thanks .
  11. Hello Everyone! I'm looking to purchase my first V70R and I'm seeking for some advice and guidance on a particular vehicle. I've currently got my eye one a 04 V70R with 170,000. The first thing that gets me nervous is the number of miles. The timing belt and pump were replaced at 145,000, front struts were done at 150,000. Vehicle is priced at $4,200. Other items that were recently replaced: ABS Control Module DIM + CEM(?) not sure what this was but it was an expensive repair according to the records. And it currently still needs installed the suspension module, although the vehicle will come with the part. Thank you for your ideas.
  12. Hi
  13. damn, sorry
  14. My car died due to ECU failure, $1k gets you the whole car which includes the entire manual swap, KWs and full suspension, 3" custom exhaust, BBK, craters, spectras, roof racks, and good body panels, interior got flooded, you'd need to tow it, anyone interested can PM me
  15. Is that your vid? I'm dealing with the same stuff right now. Hitting a yard tomorrow to grab a few bits. Pulling the ignition switch right now to start. If I angle it this way it'll start but turning off, you don't get that final "last click". Gonna grab a few switches and that inner arm from the lock assembly.

  17. Volvo want $35AU for it!
  18. So I sprayed WD-40 and that did the trick. I removed the broken O-ring as kept popping out the side...was that the right thing to do? Should I attempt to replace this O-ring to prevent future deterioration of the area\button?
  19. Hi all, So the black o-ring around the boot button broke today and as a result the button will not retract out to flush and THE BOOT WILL NOT OPEN. I have read on other forums to try WD-40 around, to loosen the button and get a click sound to allow boot to open? Also use the key to lock\unlock as the fob has locked and it won't unlock to allow me to open it? I'm hoping I don't have to go via the back seat and disconnect a cable to get it open? Will the Vid Dice machine be required to unlock without having to go via back seat? Any other suggestions?
  20. What is "rain squeal" from an IPD cat-back exhaust? I'm looking to buy one for my 2005 VR
  21. and any progress?
  22. that's tucked in nice. SS or MS? Paint or ceramic?
  23. Hi all, I let a mechanic who failed and then attempted myself to replace the light globes where the headlight switch is. This resulted in $16AU a globe x 3 and only the GREEN headlight switch light now works? I believe there are two other globes that I replaced but do not light up! Will Vid Dice determine the issue and could it be RELAY or Fuse related? http://www.volvoforums.org.uk/showthread.php?s=3dbf6663bc07bbcfbe000e7cd204fe50&t=85607 It's the right lights and bottom light that is out compared to this picture! Also there is a plastic prong that broke and the dash vinyl no longer sits in under the vent cover as a result. Anyone know how to fix the vinyl that has expanded?
  24. Up! Left turn corner light signal black bezel brand new 20$ for sale too
  25. So using a sway bar bracket kit he replaced both mounts and a rack bolt kit. Also a black tube(has channels in it) was broken on right side removing sway bar so that was replaced aswell. Drove home and on turning wheel knock noted on left side! Returning tomorrow morning to to discover what causing noise. Does not occur driving straight! Cost $460AU
