    I wouldn't trust visually checking for leaks if there's a problem that might be down to a boost leak! Even a connection that looks good, with a good condition clip, cold still be opening up under...

    Yeah, the reg number is no guarantee of the right size as I presume the 305s must have been like a factory option at new. Might have been linked to what size wheels the car was specced with when...

    Presumably yours is the 305mm discs. I assume you've validated that.

    When you've ordered them, have you just given your reg and trusted the supplier to provide what comes up on the system? When I...

    John, have you bought the replacement Vida yet? PM me if not, I'm selling mine.

    Well, it's only been 4 days and this topic has now become moot :nut:

    This is how indecisive I am - 4 days ago I'd settled on the plan to take the V70 off the road in Sep when the MOT runs out and...

    Jon, when I read your OP the other day the following were my thoughts at the time but I thought better to shut up and let others offer some actual useful tech advice first....

    True, but I wasn't going to replace the rubber bushes, I was going to replace the whole arms. Autodoc can supply Lemforder arms for around 65-75 each (price varies day to day depending on what %...

    THanks Lee

    I'm happy to go down the Billy B4 route (would prefer to) for two reasons - 1) I've seen very positive feedback for the B4s on Volvos, and 2) short of buying direct from Volvo I'm not...

    Guys, I know a lot of this is has been covered in the past, but I'm really struggling to make a decision on which way to go with my T5.

    I need to do more or less a complete overhaul. It is a...

    Mind if ask what was the rough cost of the clutch job at Murray's, and did it include a new DMF? Given what they quoted me for the PCV job in the past I know they won't have been cheap!

    On my Ph2 with the basic HU I've got a copy of a Yatour box, which is I guess pretty similar to the Grom. Plugs in to the CD multichanger input, so that's what you select on the menu when you want to...

    FOrgot to point out the glaringly obvious! the 2.4Ts aren't 170bhp, that'll be the NA variant of the 2.4. The turbo'd 2.4s are more like 190bhp.

    Perhaps over simplifying, but most of the power deficit is down to boost, or lack thereof. They are detuned for want of a better word, but the smaller turbos look like they spin up quicker (I say...

    Have fun fitting them. Skinned knuckles ahoy! Not a difficult job particularly, just one of those really annoying ones.

    I'm not put off them, mistakes happen. My order was about a year ago though, so nothing to do with any warehouse move

    They did that to me as well. Sods law, I only noticed AFTER I'd drained the old oil out :wallbash:

    I consoled myself in the fact that the oil they sent me was about 3 times as expensive on their...

    Oh and another thing, it's worth checking your subframe bushes anyway. I believe they are a bit of a pig to replace (I've got two still on my To Do list). You can fit poly inserts that fill the void...

    I've done my top engine mount bush with the round Supaflex purple bush like Lee has done (you need an earlier mount though with the round hole instead of square hole) and there was no noticeable...

    I did some googling and found a few mentions of this on other forums in relation to S60s and V70s, which confirm that other people are getting a reading for coolant temp on Torque Pro. Which makes it...

    To test it you need to cover the light sensor on the windscreen side to fool it in to thinking it's night time, then (with ignition on) shine a bright light at the mirror side and see if it reacts.
