    Just wondering....Is this really necessary? For instance the user manual doesn't mention this under battery replacement.
    Pg 139:

    It says so in Autodata and that, afaik, over rules the user manual.

    Rear inner rear lower arm x2: Powerflex purple
    Rear outer rear lower arm x2: Powerflex purple.

    The rear bushes are a bitch to fit, and will cost around 400 in labour alone. Some need to be pressed out using a hydraulic press. However, they are well worth it and after a full alignment, the car will have that 'New car' feeling when everything is tight and under control.
    PowerFlexing your bushes are a good way to 'future proof' and guarantee longevity and constant control with no fatigue or wearing out of the bushes.

    Obviously a Full alignment is necessary.
    Hi Lee,
    Which one you ordered the 'S60 AWD (2001-2009)' or 'S60 (2001-2009), V70-MK2, S80-MK1 (2000-2007)' series?
    Fronts seems to be the same, however few differences when looking at the rears.

    I went off the S60 AWD.
    TBH it doesn't matter. The fronts are identical and for the rear, go off the AWD version.

    New front springs...

    Had a minor set back at the weekend.
    Went to use the car Saturday and found it making a horrendous noise after only moving 2ft!

    F/O/S spring broke!



    First things first, jack up car and remove wheel. Luckily I wasn't driving when this happened because the sharp bit in the photo was pressing hard against the tyre sidewall. It isn't uncommon for a spring to puncture a tyre when they fail at the roadside, something I see all the time.
    As I'd only moved the car a couple of feet there wasn't any damage, just some very minor scratches on the rubber shoulder.
    I then, with the help of an AA Patrol colleague, managed to rotate the spring enough so the sharp bit was tucked behind the shock. I then added 3 large 1" thick transport blocks to the shock, clamping them around the exposed metal piston part of the shock. These prevent the car, when lowered back down, collapsing on the broken spring.
    I then fitted the space saver as this gives loads of clearance from the broken spring, which as you can see has come off the spring seat base.

    Space saver on, I was then able to gingerly drive the car (slowly) to my local Dealer for them to fix during the week.

    Wednesday afternoon I collected the car and all is well.

    New springs fitted.





    Parts fitted:

    30639016 Front spring x 2
    30683637 Spring seat x 2
    30760914 Helper spring x 1 (bump stop)
    30666850 Protecting bellows x 1
    SUM Calibration x 1
