1. Obtain the correct bulb; I got mine from a Volvo dealer, but it does not look like a highly specialized bulb. 2. Open rear hatch. Remove the plastic cover on the side pillar next to the hatch that has a speaker vent: you do this by poking a small screwdriver into each of the two rectangular slots next to the hatch, and prying back the plastic cover. 3. Remove the speaker by pulling on… Read More

Turn off ign then back on to confirm reset. Ron J
The regulator is internal to the alternator! Just replace the alt. The alternator has an internal regulator that can be replaced by itself; however, when there is an issue with the alternator, it often involves diodes in alternator instead of or in addition to the regulator. better repair shops will often take an alternator to an automotive electrical repair shop for same-day rebuilds, with the value much higher than a cheap rebuild in a chain… Read More
Just spent a half hour reading through the V70 1998 owners manual--found only the fuse # (36) for the REAR 12 v auxiliary power plug. Am e-mailing volvocust svc in new jersey for answer. bw
Remove the interior door panel. You will see a metal rod connecting your interior and exterior door handles. Most of the time the rod comes loose from one or the other. Reconnect the rod. There's not much space so you might need a pair of needlenose pliers. If that doesn't work, there is a trip lever toward the rear of the door. The lever can be stubborn but it will open the door. Any vehicle… Read More

Volvo recommended interval is 105,000 miles. You also replace the tensioner and the idler pulley at this time. 96000 miles You might also consider replacing the water pump at this time, it's driven by the timing belt and requires very little more labor to replace while you have the timing belt off.
Disconnect the alarm horn !
replace the flasher unit ,there should be one for the emergency flashers close to the turn signal flasher.....so turn on your emergency flashers and follow the clicking sound and im sure youll find the turn flasher right next to it If one or the other is on solid and won't blink it is likely the bulb assembly. Follow the directions for changing the bulb to free it from the lens case. There is a metal… Read More
You begin by using a small screwdriver in the slots at the bottom of the rear speaker, near the rear hatch. The face plate will easily disengage. Pull out the red clip about an inch and then pull on the tag on top of the speaker unit. You will need very small hands to get into the space provided. It is very difficult to turn the bulb holder but it comes out once turned. It… Read More

rear seat latch un-stuck Open your trunk and look for a black small plastic round knob - inside toward the top right.

Below the intake manifold on the passenger or right side of the engine I own a 1998 v70. the oil trap is behind the intake manifold on the left side. FCPgroton sells the repair kit for it. As I stated the first time it is on the right or passenger side of the engine. You will need to remove the intake manifold to service or replace it. If the oil is changed often enough the… Read More

The rear wiper/washer fuse is located in the fuse box, it's #33. If you open the hood and look by where the driver's side hood hinge mounts to the body, you will see a black plastic cover with a small latch on it. This cover is about 7" by 3". That's the cover to the fuse box. Inside the cover is a lebel that will help you find the right fuse. The relay is mounted… Read More
you must use an ODB-2 code reader/ code eraser. You first should read the code or codes and write them down. These tell you what is wrong with the car. (such as code p0401, which is the common air pump failure code)You can get a cheapo reader/clearer at harbor freight for about $25 or a decent one for about $75-100.
Replace the ABS module - from what I read it will cost about 900 bucks
depending on your model of garage door, ther is usually an orange or red button on the side of the garage door motor as is mine a liftmaster security + model. you hold this button till its indicator light starts blinking then you have fifteen seconds to get to your homelink visor and choose 1 2 or 3 and push and hold till the door responds.
The fluid for most automatic transmissions and in some cases manual transmissions recommend a fluid exchange of at least every 30,000 miles.
You must remove the center console (shifter, parking brake). There's a gold box next to the parking brake assembly - this is the control for the auto seatbelt system. Here's the question though - ARE BOTH SEATBELTS INOPERABLE? If so, you most likely need a new control box (don't be lazy - go to a pick-n-pull yard). If not, you wil most likely need a new track and motor (these are both located in the… Read More
Loosen the lug nuts a bit. Put the car up on jack stands. Take off the tires. Take off the brake caliper. Now the rotors should come off. If they are stubburn, hit them with a rubber mallet or 2x4.

Not quite sure what you are referring to ... to you mean the engine oil or the gearbox oil? If you mean the engine oil, you'll need the standard bits like a drain pan, 6 liters of oil, a filter cartridge, PLUS a decent floor jack and stands, a Volve filter cap wrench and a torque wrench. (Yes, I've been changing my Volvo oil for many years!) Jack the front end of the car up… Read More

Then undo the plate securing the bottom of the battery to the floor of… Read More
I am really sorry for anyone who this happened to and searches for a little light of hope. It is the rule that once the timing belt snaps, the engine is demolished for good. In most cases the cost of repair is way higher than the price of the entire vehicle, except for relatively new expesive cars, which, naturaly, have new timing belts, so it doesnt happen. So if the timing belt broke, no matter… Read More

You have a blown head gasket. STOP running this engine or you will destroy it. The head gasket needs replacing. There might be another problem if you have a turbo. If so the smoke you see (if not pure white but a little gray with a burnt oil smell) might be oil leaking into the turbo unit and expelling through the exhaust. You would need to replace the turbo. Used ones for about $500 parts… Read More

This is extremely difficult unless you are a double-jointed orang utan - in theory the driver's handbook tells you how. If you're in the UK take it to Halfords who will do it while you wait for £5.99 plus the cost of the bulb. Money well spent!
This is a very common problem in the early AWD models. My 1999 V70 XC AWD had the Prop (Drive) Shaft removed after a sound like hitting a wrench against a metal pipe got so loud I had to get the problem diagnosed. The two CV joints at each end of the shaft plus the centre bearing had all perished. You can remove the shaft (1 hour labour max) and drive the car perfectly safely… Read More

there is a recall for this
There has actually been a recall on the 98 intrigues because of the rear seat belts. They have a tendency to twist as they are pulled into the automatic retractor, causing the retractor to seize up. Had the same problem with mine. All I did was slowly pull the seatbelts a little at a time. When they would stop, I'd let it back in again to unlock the retractor, then try again. Took some patience… Read More

If the door won't open from the outside when you press the handle, you need to take apart the interior part of the door and the mechanism. There is a barrel that slides in a groove that has jumped out causing the door to not open from the outside. If you have auto locks they will not work either. Only opening the door from the inside will work since that pushed the lock from another… Read More

In dry climates rubber suspension componets wear out more quickly than one would expect. If you use any wrong chemicals you can expect the componet you added the wrong chemical to have a failure shortly after so it is suggested you only use Volvo chemicals.
you HAVE to get it from the dealership, there is no way you can take it to a keymaker and get a copy because your key has a chip in it.

Standing in front of the hood, bend slightly at the knees and look between the gap for the hood release mechanism. 4. Hold… Read More
Short-trip driving the vehicle over a long period of time will eventually cause undesired operation. One of the main things that happen when a vehicle is operated like that is that the cooling system does not reach full operating temperature, which is necessary to help the gasoline completely vaporize and be burned more efficiently. This means that carbon will build up inside the intake and combustion chambers and foul the spark plugs, which would have… Read More

Lets start from here. Automatic nightlights need a photosensor such as a photodiode or phototransistor connected to an opamp. the opamp compares the photo sensors output with a fixed reference value and triggers a relay via a booster transistor to switch on your head lamps. Positioning is important so that rogue lighting does not trip the system off again till true daylight appears. Switching the ignnition off....wirelessly, automatically after an event or what? i dont… Read More
It sounds like your dizzy cap isn't lined right which causes the engine to stay running after the ignition has been switched off. i had the same problem with my fiesta
My shop manual indicates a special scan tool is used to read the fault codes. If the light is on it is indicating a fault somewhere in the system. This or these faults will need to be corrected for the lamp to go out. The same holds true at start up. If you have no light at start up for a few seconds, this also indicates a fault in the system. Try a Mitsubishi dealer… Read More

Both the front and rear power outlets are on the same fuse. It's #30 in the fuse box. The fuse box you want (there are 2 separate ones) is under the hood, by the driver's side hood hinge. Lift the black plastic cover, it's about 3" by 6". On the inside of the cover, there should be a sticker that will help you find the fuse. Be sure to look inside the 2 power outlets… Read More
Got your air con on? Are the revs dropping and climbing as the compressor kicks in and out? I had this problem and although it didnt stall, it was pretty close - which is a problem in an automatic when you're sat at the lights in rush hour.

Volvo (the car) means it's rolling. I think it's latin. It comes from the period when they made ball bearings instead of cars. More precisely it means "i roll" or "we roll". Volvo means "constant rolling", i got this answer from a Volvo course i was on in the early eighties, does relate to their previous business of bearing manufacture.
V70 Petrol models The idle speed is ECU controlled and is non adjustable.
This may be the result of an electrical switch in a door lock mechanism that is stuck closed (likely the driver side door as this is the most used door). Unfortunately, this switch is integrated with the locking mechanism and its expensive to replace. I experienced the same thing with the back hatch (the back hatch electrical switch stopped working, although the latch would still lock, the back hatch light will stay on and the… Read More

That is a matter of opinion. Volvo S60 or V70 R would be mine, the engines in those are phenominal The C30 has the looks the S80 has the comfort the V70 has the practicality if you are looking at older models, go for the 850. They are uber reliable and safe, and they have a nice driving feel.
most likely the front c-v joints are bad and they make a grinding sound when you turn your wheel one way or the other. Better check your front hubs. CV joints normally make a loud popping noise. Might also be a broken strut spring or bad upper strut bearing. Try applying down-pressure on the top of the fender on the side making noise. If it makes the noise, then it is something in the front… Read More
I just went through a big bill with my local mechic looking to fix my vent/heater/ac blower and lights that do not work, well when I said this problem occured after our battery had died and had been replaced, the mechanic told us that the computer must be reset by the dealer who I am calling now.

All this work is done from under the car. There are two sensors on the S70. One is called the upstream( located higher up on the exhaust manifold) and the other would be the downstream.
