  1. So back to my back left rear tyre noise..... Definitely 55-80kms\hr seems the internet says most likely tyres but they are pilot 3 and last set never made this train track noise? Think only 40k on them..... Have rotated tyres Next is to have someone drive behind to see if any thing looks odd.... Feeling no different in steering wheel.....
  2. So getting Drivers Side Seat belt...the part here cost $400AU Is the following normal for the base of the area of the seatbelt...that grey plastic square?
  3. Hi all, The leak seems fixed now and thought I would post youtube of my current engine bay with new pipes installed:
  4. Mechanic says it's tyre noise...which I have not had with same tyres before? Mentioned rear sway bar but he says it's not making a noise that he expects. I showed him drivers seat belt that he said unroadworthy to sell but not an issue at moment to keep using. Rang Volvo here and they want $393AU for a new one as comes with pre-tensioner in a kit
  5. Hi there, I have noticed a thud or unusual sound from the back\rear left of car in my RHD car at about 60-80kmhs and also turning left it increases? The tyres are inflated correctly and underneath looks fine. I did notice a loose\hanging "wire connection" at the very back in between the bumper and the car shell(directly behind the mud guard.....seems to be hanging there and not sure is dislodged from correct position but I don't think it is the cause of the noise. There is no lights on dash or error codes, no shudder or performance changes just a noise that sounds "doof doof"...not the normal outside wind noise and the windows are up\radio off. Any suggestions or ideas?
  6. Volvo wanted $5.95AU...local mechanic gave me wrong globe(screw in) and went back and got right one which is plug in as per this clip..$1.00AU...seems to have same brightness!
  7. So just clocked 240K and thought things running well finally and right rear number plate bulb gone! Found this you tube video to replace: Also testing my Aircon with new Fan resistor seems to only hit 4 and not as cold when switch on MAX COLD.....used to be freezing and running on 5 speed(Auto)
  8. So I got an Ebay ELM327......came with 2.1 Firmware plugging in the power lights face the pedals.... So I got it going and default Dials are Speed and Acceleration worked. My Boost psi and Throttle did not work(have a turbo)???? Got home and looked at this you tube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMYZNal9Wpk Found the other dials and have it setup for 6 on the phone. Have added MAF and Coolant. What do DIALS do you have setup on yours? Now I checked the logged\pending codes and it produced an Ignition Coil code....I just had them replaced....the mechanic did not reset codes? Show historic faults.....had none? Edit: So the Pending\Fault code won't clear? This fault is "not" showing on the dashboard and I understood fixed by replacement of parts? Why won't the fault clear on Torque Lite? Dials update MAF and Fuel level don't work, Coolant and RPM does work. Edit2: Will try this to clear codes....http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1249867 With Torque, try having the car such that the ignition is on, but the engine is not running, then touch the clear code button, then turn the ignition off. This should work to clear the codes. Edit3: The above clears the codes CONFIRMED!
  9. So the PO352 Pending\Fault code won't clear? This fault(Ignition Coil B Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction) is "not" showing on the dashboard and I understood fixed by replacement of parts? Why won't the fault clear on Torque Lite? Dials update MAF and Fuel level don't work, Coolant and RPM does work.

I noted he had topped up the coolant again....no charge.... Now I notice a black scuff mark on the back left corner of car on returning home This year alone its been over $2K AU to service and keep it going.
  13. Rang Local Volvo Parts centre $206.60AU Each !!!!! https://www.myswedishparts.com/oem-parts/volvo-ignition-coil-1275602/?c=aT05NzI1MjI1NSZyPWxheWVyXzE%3D $64US each above Have the car overnight!
  14. Told it is the "ignition coil" and he is going to replace more than one? This is what was causing the ECM error and the power loss?
