What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

Recommended Posts

Mine is my daily which is now sitting at 301,000 miles on it.  I don't know about your garage queens.

I swapped the O2 sensor trying to solve a random issue when starting cold.

Finally found a local clean replacement passenger fender that I picked last week. Installed this and swapped the jewel turn signal from the C70 into the S70 and installed a new one on the C70. Still need to do PDR on a couple small dents and then buff it up to be perfect.

Big thanks to Daniel who found this one.

Time to refresh the rear brakes on the S70 next as I discovered a sticky caliper. That’s next Saturday’s adventure.

I daily the S70 and now my oldest is learning to drive with it. Just hit 135k miles. I’ve put 9k miles on the coupe since I bought from Josh 9 years ago but the bulk of that was in the first 5 years.

Changed my front brake rotors.  Also hopefully fixed a very annoying squeak in my front suspension.

The car should have been built with that shifter. It's incredible and I didn't think it was that bad before. Zero play in the shifter now.

Completely overhauled the rear brakes including parking brake.

F this spring.

Used up one of my last two cans of blue stuff.

Was driving the XC70 to work this morning in the rain. Accelerated around a corner, heard a loud bang and then the front wheels broke free. Stripped out the goddamn collar :angry:

And here I was, thinking stripped collars were almost solely an R problem.

Factory collar or had you already done work on it?

Nah, I've put just as many collars on XC's as I have R's.

Factory collar. I needed to replace some of the angle gear seals anyways, so I guess no time like the present. I'm hoping the angle gear made it out ok though.
