    Bills Pre-Brexit stage zero....

    Hi
    In the last few thousand miles Iíve been plugging away trying to get my cars back to showroom condition (or better). Iím running a 2005 Volvo XC70 Ocean Race D5 as my daily, and a 2004 volvo V70R as my weekend car. (Some may recall my modification thread a while back, however this thread is purely focused on maintenance)
    With the uncertainty of Brexit looming and not knowing how parts supply and delivery would be impacted, I decided to order everything in advance and aim to complete by end of March 2019.
    Below are the pics of my cars with the maintenance works. (Yes Iím fortunate enough to have my own 2 post ramp in my garage at home which makes things a hundred times easier)

    The parts bill is a fraction of what I’ve saved in labour costs

    Are you sure your R is from 2004?

    Just checked my documents, it was first registered in September 2003! Many years ago I was told it was a 2004, which is why I refer to it as an 04. I think VIDA has it as an 04, but I’m doubting that now too!
    I’ll plug in soon and find out for sure this weekend. Thanks for the prompt.

    It's weird because the rear lights are from >2005 model and the same for the rear wiper.
    Is the R center console the same as your XC70?

    The rear lights are an upgrade, the rear wiper and the 05 centre console have also been upgraded with spares from an 05.
    The unpainted bumper trim shows the car truly is a pre-facelift.
    It looks younger than it’s true age, unlike me! However both motors are parked in garages which helps with UV damage, and have been polished to get the swirls removed from the paint.

    Got it!
    The unpainted bumper trim could have been a downgrade LOL

    Completed my transmission cooler project today on the XC70. Had a power steering cooler off a V70R and I bought a heavy duty plate and fin cooler off eBay. (From Canada not China!)
    Also scooped up a 3/8 transmission oil filter from amazon, and a spare oil hose from eBay so I didn’t have to cut the hoses which belong to the car (So the mod is reversible). Both lower and upper coolers are connected in series with a hose coming out of the lower one and straight into the upper one.
    I also had a load of OEM power steering hose and fuel line clamps.
    The filter is located down by the lower radiator hose for ease of changing out. See pics below.

    The XC70 has almost reached 100,000 miles (95k), so I gave it a fluid service today. Did both front and rear diffs, the Haldex (AOC) and filter, engine oil and filter (with a flush using a bit of cheap oil). The transmission oil, power steering and brake fluid have been done already very recently. It only leaves a coolant change which is still on my list of things to do. Hopefully this’ll give me trouble free motoring moving forward into the next 100k.

    Rear nivomats taken out. Note if you have nivomats you donít need to use the spring spacer on the rear. You just need to spacer the top of the nivomat by 20mm.
