My front passenger door lock is no longer working. The lock pin appears to be locked, but the door is still openable from the outside, which sets of the alarm. Definitely not great in terms of security because the door can be opened from the outside regardless of whether or not the door is locked or not. I saw one other forum post, http://tinyurl.com/hqcwly6, with the same problem, and someone replied, saying that they were able to permanently lock the door from the outside so it is only openable from the inside. Does anyone know how to do this? I am also interested to know if it is the lock actuator that needs to be replaced, or something else, but I am totally for a "fix it for now" solution as I am tight on money.
Hello all. Haven't been on in a while but thought I would jump I n to call in some support from the community for a good friend of mine. He is trying to get a new business off the ground building custom models. He is very good at detail work and an honest/kind guy. We have discussed making custom Volvo 850 models and he is interested in creating some for people who are willing to pay for custom work.
For it now he is running a gofundme campaign to get started. Think about contributing a few bucks or a few hundred depending on your finances and putting a good guy in a place to make custom Volvo models in the near future. I want to have him make me an 850R that looks just like mine.

I'm aquiring 4 sets of the 9133105 euro spec double bulb assembly for the euro spec corner lights. These are only the part that plugs in the back of the corner lights. They are really hard to find and Volvo does not offer them on the United States. If you want a set let me know. Price is $100 shipped conus.
Thanks for looking
