  1. Volvo want $35AU for it!
  2. 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?
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 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

  7. Vid Dice diagnosed it as Fan RELAY switch and he put a secondhand one in for $11!!!!
  8. Does the Vid Dice machine need to reset the computer if a new resistor is placed on? Just replacing the resistor ,as above, did not fix the continuous fan on high speed?
  9. So gone in today and he is replacing just the sway bar mounts as they are broken! Is this common? How much for just the mounts to be replaced?
  10. My posts are double spaced(line between sentences) how do I stop this?
  11. Appreciate that but will be done by mechanic. $600US will probably be $1KAU here How DO I get double spacing off?
  12. Thinks it could be control modular for heater\aircon.......they still work as they should, just the Fan running on 5 speed on each dial position.....this morning driving to mechanic the fan was coming on and off.
  13. Hi there, How do you turn off double space? So when I first had struts replaced they did both about 10 years ago. About 2 years ago I had only the right side done which stuffed the steering wheel being straight. Today mechanic did the left one and the steering wheel now leans right hand down Says I need the front sway bar mounts done too and big job....how much does that cost...and how long to do?
  14. Picked up the car and because he did not have Vid Dice machine....the machine he thought would tell him code .......did not get code to work out the issue. Replaced the Fan resistor with new, problem remained. Replaced with second hand, problem remained. Return my original, problem remained. Now thinks it is the Aircon\heating unit itself with the issue and needs the Vida Dice machine to determine code issue. (Tech with machine returns in 2 weeks)I I now have a fan that is on 5x speed constant from being intermittent after mechanic fiddle! I asked for "1" globe under the fan knob to be replaced and he replaced all 3 globes, under each knob because "the new one had a blue tinge compared to the existing"! They were $16 each!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHRIST! and nothing wrong with the other two in place!
  15. Ahhhh dropped it in for 235K service and the tech with Vida Dice is away with it! Mechanic calls later in morning and says what's wrong???? seems to be working as it should ahhhhhhhhhhhh Note to self always show mechanic issue!!! Reinforced that put on full cold\hot temp and move fan to "0" and fan remains on 5 speed!
