    Turbo oil inlet feed pipe 99 C70

    Hi all,

    I need to change my turbo oil inlet feed pipe. I bought a new one, with banjo bolts and copper seals, thought it would be an easy change. Not! I have the front raised up on jack stands and it looks like I might need to remove the intermediate shaft? Anyone changed this pipe before or have an easier way "without taking the engine out lol".
    2 reasons I'm changing it, replacing turbo and kinda bent the old one, not bad, but enough for my OCD to kick in lol.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    never had a problem with any of the ones I've done, but I've always had custom braided ones made.

    Thanks for replying. What I was really asking is what's the best way to get at the banjo bolt on the block? I already have a new Volvo pipe, just couldn't get my hand in from underneath to reach up to feel the bolt.

    Just normal sockets or spanners to undo, not need anything special to remove or would have made a special tool, didn't need to remove anything else as far as I remember. ....ring spanner springs to mind to remove block end banjo and socket turbo end....both are different sizes as I remember

    Any good suggestions guys as to best place to get feed and return pipes? Cant see them on the after market, but dont want to pay Volvo prices for a liitle bit of pipe. If i do so be it. Sprry for the thread hijack, and mine is an old 850 too! Cheers woz

    My god, I forgot I wrote this post. Think I even cried a bit that day, I worked on jets easier than this job lol.
    I just bought a new 1 from FRF Volvo, with the discount, don’t remember being too expensive, I was more shocked at the price of each turbo bolt to the manifold cost.
    If your going the route of getting a braided pipe made, just make sure the ID is correct size, it does flow a lot of oil through it.

    Good luck and have fun.
