There is abolt on the bottom of the alternator that holds the alternator to the engine. There is another bolt and bracket on the top that adjusts the belt tension. There is a ground wire, power wire from the starter and a wire that connects to the dash light. There are also one or two belts depending on the year and model of the car.

When working on anything electrical, a person should have a diagram. The diagram for the alternator wiring for a 1985 Volvo 240 can be found in its maintenance manual.

Yes I believe actually the 1986 to 1992 Volvo 240 4 doors are all interchangeable parts but I'm not sure for 1985 and earlier models.

Begin by removing the alternator tensioner bolt. Slide the alternator to the left. Remove the alternator belt. Reverse the process to install the new alternator belt.

It can be a little expensive to replace the EGR valve on the 1987 Volvo 240 DL. The job takes about 1 to 3 hours and can cost as much as about 240 dollars.

Not 100% sure about the '87, but there is no PCV valve on the 1986 Volvo 240 2.3L. Flame trap and Oil trap, but no PCV.

Worn brushes, bad Regulator, or Likely a bad connection or wiring.

My friend has a 1982 Volvo Station Wagon 240 GL that needs headlights replaced, what is the best way to go about this and about how much will it cost?

User Avatar

What would help would be an articulate question. Does "lose power" mean a loss of voltage/current, or a loss of engine power (horsepower/torque)?

User Avatar

It's better to go ahead and replace it.

User Avatar

well compare them after you take them out becaue sometimes they have different connections and if they do then you have to switch the plugs to make them fit.

User Avatar

Yes. They are exactly the same as long as the newer wagon is also a 240 (not a 740). All 240 hoods are interchangeable from 1986 on.

It depends on your skill level with mechanicing.
