  1. Ignition coil signal to low on all 5 coils

    I would start by inspecting the wiring harness on top of the engine. It's not unheard to pinch a wire to one of the coils when putting the plastic covers back on.
  2. This install procedure applies to all P2 models without premium audio. This is a quick and easy speaker upgrade to get ready of those factory paper cone speakers. The front and rears are both 6.5", so you'll have a plethora of options to replace them. I choose these Pioneers for their good reviews and cost effectiveness. At this point anything would be better than the rattling paper cones that are totally blown out. I'm using a PA-200 amp from an S80 to power them, and I'm sure they would stand up to a PA-300. Things you'll need for this job; Torx T25 Flathead screwdriver Cordless Drill Soldering iron wire strippers. After you remove the door panel you can access the speaker. As mentioned above we are NOT going to be drilling the rivets out for the speaker brackets. First we'll need to gently pry around the outside edge of the speaker to break the adhesive free. Next you'll need to turn the speaker counter clockwise to release it from the locking tabs. This can a little effort, so you may need to tap the screwdriver with a hammer to get it moving. This is why releasing the adhesive is so important ;) These next two images are to show the locking tabs on the speaker and in the speaker bracket for clarity. Now we connect the new speakers. Solder the wire ends to the terminals left in the speaker grill. Use the factory harness to locate the positive terminal, it will be grey/and whatever color. The negative terminal is sold grey. Finally it's time to screw in the speaker. You'll need some small self tapping screws or use the provided screws that came with your speakers like I did. And voila, you're done! All 4 speakers should take an hour or less from start to finish. Good luck!
  3. 2013 S60 T5....just bought

    You are missing the high-pressure washer cover. You can order one from your local dealer, but you will have to have it painted.

    So does the engine crank but not start?
  5. 2000 V70R AW55-50SN Transmission Compatibility

    Throttle bodies are the same no matter what transmission is in it. The ETM swap info applies to turbo (Bosch) and non turbo (Denso) cars. You can swap in a throttle body from another turbo car 99-01 (S80, S60 and V70) to your 00R. If you put in a used trans it's going to fail too. They all had design flaws in 2000 that were fixed later in life. Plus, finding a used 2000 R transmission isn't the easiest thing in the world.
  6. 2000 V70R AW55-50SN Transmission Compatibility

    I'm going to second the M66 conversion, it's really the only option at this point in the cars life.

    Go to V70R.com and you'll find it there
  8. 2000 V70R Spark Plugs?

    OEM fanboy here.
  9. v70xc sagging/drooping on the left

    Sounds like one of the springs is weak from towing a trailer/heavy load etc. I'd say it's time for a new set of rear springs. If you ever thought about the Bad Swede lift kit, now is the time!
  10. New s60 with an option I have never seen....

    It's the mount for the Garmin Nuvi unit that Volvo offered as a more affordable alternative to the regular navigation. I actually installed a number of these back in the day. Nothing like drilling into the dash of a brand new car
  11. XC90 Folding cargo saftey net/pet barrier P/N 8679536. SHOULD fit 03-14 XC90's, but you'll need to check fitment. Folds up into a nice little pouch. No real blemishes just looks used. $75 shipped to your door.
  12. volvo v70 II parts

    Is this a for sale post?
  13. XC90 V8 Catalytic Converter

    In a word, no. The cats on both engines are integrated on the exhaust manifold and the shape is WAY different.
  14. 10 xc60 t6

    Nope, just oil consumption.
