Whose is the 500? Is it an Abarth  :blush: ?

It's my Fiances, boringiish 500 with the NA 1.4? Does better then you'd think in the snow with proper snow tires. We did just get both rear wheel bearings replaced under warranty though. Cupped the crap out of the rear wheels. Only had 4-5k on those winter tires and only 33,000 on the car itself.

Re-sealed the Angle gear on my '00 XC. 
Sleals.PNG
#2 is 9143885
#3 is 30735126

Left had seals 2 & 3 live very far down in the sleeve and the angle gear respectively. The transmission side was totally dry and so we decided to leave them be. 

The big seal on the exposed passenger side was the most likely culprit.

Filling it through a long funnel from above the engine.

Took about 98% of the 1L bottle. 

Driven 100+ miles on it with no leaks and no foul burning smell.

FIY  -you can fill those out of the car - no fluid will leak out unless you tip it over where the vent nipple is located :)

I use a pair of long sheet rock screws to extract the inner/outer   D/S seal - but if it was dry no reason to fuck with it I agree.

Ahh nice i did notice the hole at the top. 

We had the thing all sorts of flipped around when refitting it into the car. Should have filmed how it came out. 

A screw was needed for the large seal on the pass side. Nothing seems to work better.

Trying to sure up the wiring on my refurb AFR gauge. Yes the innovate died randomly after less then 5000 miles. It was the gauge that was no good. 

Looking for the correct pin to fit into the accessory connector under the dash. I had some ok ones from Carquest, however since being bought out, they carry nothing of the sort any more. Can anyone pinpoint which one is correct?

After some research and dealer questioning the correct pins are seemingly unavailable. Out of stock here in the U.S. and not show as available in Sweden. 

#27 seemed to be the correct one. 

Improvising, I did some junkyard digging into the wires under the dash and took apart some of the male side connectors for those big yellow / purple connectors under the dash.

They produced some decent sized leads. Took a pair of side cutters and pinched them slightly so they fit and where held into the yellow connector. 

Happy to say as well the Innovate gauge warranty process went alright. Seems to be working correctly again.

Nice job getting it all fixed quickly. 

That being said, I'm a huge fan of my AEM gauges - not the flashiest/most feature laden, but dead reliable and respond quickly. If it continues to be a problem, you could switch the Innovate gauge for an AEM one, they use the same LSU 4.9 Wideband O2 sensor so it would be pretty close to plug and play.

[...]

The pins you are looking for are referred to as:

Power Timer, Standard Power Timer, Junior Power Timer or JPT

Obviously there is a size difference between "Standard" and "Junior". Available in male or female configuration. Requires a suitable crimping tool to enable simultanious crimping of both the contact and strain relief tabs. Or just fudge it with pliers and never pull on the cable.

I was thinking of just getting the gauge only (if possible) The screen on this is pretty nice, and I guess it responds quicker? idk. Doing it again I would go for the problem free one. 

Did a better job wiring it all together this time too. It's not pretty but its all heat shrink / adhesive quick connects.

I was seeing Flat terminal and terminal pin when locating similar things. I think we are talking about the same pieces. Using this in the end might have proven easier, being pre-crimped and all.

On all the ends I did 3:1 adhesive lined heat shrink to sure it up a bit.  The terminals are just in the connector under the pressure of the 'lid' they are lightly tuggable.

Innovate's MTX-L gauge is shit. It was poorly engineered in many ways, one of them being that they pulse the heater circuit too slowly, causing large temperature swings of the sensing element, leading to premature failure.

The new AEM X-series are worlds better, not in terms of response time and accuracy, but also sensor life.

I have a feeling that's part of what changed in the Firmware update & Warranty repair. It's on "htr" much longer then it used to be, which I'm really fine with so long as it all works from now on. The 02 sensor came back really clean and with new sleaving on the cable, they may have replaced it as well. 

The X series is so thin too, kind of nice if you want to mount it somewhere nontraditional. 

Considering Scaling back the A pillar clutter with a single gauge to do both AFR & Boost.

Sitting a little more neatly now. took the time to hot glue down the leather cover and trim the thicker sections on the seams

Quintessential R badge affixed to the front of the grill. Got another junkyard one and gave it a clean with 3-4 plasti dip coats. 

Badge is done with 3m red. Clips remain intact.

Instead of getting the battery turned sideways I decided to make a little helper bracket to hold the intake system off the B+ cable. 

This piece of bar stock was going to be a holder for my rear Ohlins reservoirs. I found an old thread on Swedespeed that shows a longer piece going  between the two seat belt mounts for a 3rd row.

      Our much beloved V70R (~110K miles) overheated on a family trip from Oakland to LA this week.  It now sits at a dealer/service station waiting either for us to pour more money into it than we can afford right now, or for you to come and pick it up.  Asking $1500, OBO.  Then you can either fix the thermostat (and possibly head gasket) yourself, or part it out.
      We are the original owners, with complete service records.  Right before this trip, it had a regular service and new front brakes done (but, ugh, not the thermostat).
      Needs to happen by Weds July 8, in Los Angeles. Paypal, Venmo works.
      (1st side facing pic is from this week, dash board & down facing pic from last year.)

      Hi im new to this forum and this is my first post.
      i have a V70r 1999 
      there seems to be difficult to find a gearbox replacement 1208943. Reason for replacement is the gears are slipping when the atf is hot. I want to rebuild it but instead of taking down the one on the car I’m looking for one used I can rebuild and swap with the one on the car.
      my questions is: can i use other gearboxes F.ex 1208942 from xc70? 
      Does anybody here know What might be wrong with the one i have? No DTCs!
      Does anybody have A 1208943 they might wanna sell? Or maybe 8111193..
      other things I can do except flush as I just did that? 12l jws3309+treatments+leakstop
      where is the Volvo race mechanics ? 😅

      A slightly neglected but making a comeback, 70R that is just itching to find a motivated owner. Nearly every month, we all read, or hear about, another R selling for CRAZY money. This particular R is NOT crazy money. It's reasonable money. $4000.00 and who knows, it may be even cheaper. What I would REALLY be interested in, is a TRADE. STRAIGHT ACROSS. CAR FOR CAR. 
       
      MINE; 2005 VOLVO V70R ONE OF 674
      190,000. Mostly fwy commute miles silver paint with the typical Gobi colored leather. Yes, it would be nice if it were flash green with Atacama but it's not. Clean title, never been involved in any significant accidents. NO panel has been repainted. Has a few of the typical umps and bruises but nothing big. Interior is Gobi leather and is a little tired. CaR starts easily, idles nicely, revs like a pissed off banshee,  has a working 4C system, all three settings, NO CHECK ENGINE LITE, NO codes other than ignition ring and rear wiper motor. 
      Automatic trans with a new, Quality replacement, valve body including all eight shift solenoids. New, not ebay Chinese "reman" solenoids as well as all new proper transmission fluid. I have set adaptation thru VIDA only to find out that the VIN LOCKED TCU is probably "bricked" and needs a XEMODEX replacement.  APPROXIMATELY  $499.95  I just don't want to deal with it as I have other cars and projects in various stages of completion and have no room. 
      If I were to keep it, I would absolutely do an M66 Install as this conversion alone seems to make people go mad and throw huge amounts of cash at owners. 
      If I had the room I'd strip it bare and make it a 6 speed track only car with full cage etc.
      Yours; 95-97 855R  prefer red but any R color would work. Needs to be in reasonably decent condition. NO SALVAGED TITLE. Must run. NO more than 2 years out for tags. I understand how old they are and how crappie the interior plastic is now so I won't freak about a cracked or broken interior. PLEASE,  NO TOTAL POS CARS BUT SOME ISSUES ARE EXPECTED 
      Interested? Let me know what you're thinking and maybe we can make something happen
