  1. Hello from FRANCE !!!

    Welcome to the C family! Is it a coupe or vert?
  2. DIY: 850 Dashboard Repair

    Here, give this a try: Volospeed_-_850_Dash_Repair Also updated my previous post with this link as well. And I just saw I spelled Volvospeed wrong... oh well... Let me know if you still have issues.
  3. 98 cluster swap to a 2000?

    Thanks, I was hoping they were able to be separated.
  4. Yes, for sure. At Viva going to FL, it is $40 for this as opposed to $250 for the 1 piece.
  5. Are you talking about Viva or Carbon Fiber Works being sketchy labor? or both I suppose... I have been in contact with CFW directly on FB. I linked to Viva as it was easier to show what I was talking about.
  6. Has anyone ordered or used one of these? If yes, how is it compared to the one piece one, fit, etc., other than the obvious shipping cost difference? http://www.vivaperformance.com/hybrid-3-piece-front-lower-lip-spoiler-s70r-v70r/
  7. DIY: 850 Dashboard Repair

    I did the Chrome plugin thing (pretty cool, did not know it existed) and printed page 1 to pdf with all the images. Here it is if anyone else is interested. Thanks for the great write-up. I had forgotten about this one. Direct link: Volospeed_-_850_Dash_Repair.pdf Dropbox Link: Volospeed_-_850_Dash_Repair.pdf - Dropbox
  8. I am sure it is on here somewhere, but I have not been able to find it. Can a 98 cluster be swapped to a 99-00? I have found going the other way and the answer was no for the whole cluster. Can the guts be pulled and moved to the replacement cluster so it maintains the mileage and such since the faces are the same?
  9. I have confirmed that the intake camshaft seal popped out. I ran the engine but could not see anything leaking. But looking behind the cam gear, I can see and move the seal. New seals and timing belt kit ordered. Thanks for the info Boxpin. What can cause this to just pop out? I did my PCV last year and it still tests fine. do they loosen up with wear/age?
  10. Please see the attached pics. I have had a slow leak on the front (passenger side) of the engine for a while. Maybe a drip or two a day on the ground. Well, last night apparently, whatever it was gave up. I know it is in the timing belt cover, but I will not have a change to pull it apart until this weekend. There were drips leading up to my driveway too. Since it in the timing belt cover, it has sprayed oil all over inside there. How best to diagnose which seal specifically is leaking? I really do not want to crank it without the cover. And, is it possible for a failed cam seal to dump that much oil? or is it most likely the front main? Thanks
  11. Cool, thanks for the info.
  12. What is the biggest benefit of going with a SMF over a DMF? I have read up on both, but still not for sure. Is it just because of more positive lockup?
