My Ph2 V70 is a model year 2001 but registered in autumn 2000, and the last 7 digits of the chassis number are 2 062852, so that's an FC2 chassis with number 062852.
I need to order a front strut top mount bearing and a spring seat. On the Skandix website I've put my complete VIN in to set the vehicle model, so any parts that come up should be the right ones. That leads me to the following part numbers
31200599 - Mount
30683637 - Spring seat
They list these as suitable for FC2 up to 546642, so again my V70 fits that description.
However, when I look up the Volvo part numbers on line every seller I hit shows these as being for the 850, S/V70 up to 2000, and the C70. I've just had one eBay seller whom I placed an order with yesterday message me to say I've ordered the wrong parts.
So what gives? My chassis number fits for the earlier parts, but did Volvo really use the older 850 and S/V70 parts on the first year or so of the Ph2 V70s?
