Re: How do I restuff a 480 headrest (or get a new one)?

Headrests from 440/460s are the same, given you find a donor with the same upholstery. The foam in those is this yellow more durable one, compared to the green stuff mine was made of.

Much cheaper replacement https://www.ebay.es/itm/New-4630A011-ABS-Power-Brake-Accumulator-For-Mitsubishi-Montero-Pajero-w-o-TCL-/252958924055 To make sure it fits ask the seller for the size of the thread.

Re: Lights - Bulbs and motors

Changing the rear lights bulbs for led is a good option in my opinion. I have changed mine for these : https://www.ebay.es/itm/Philips-Vision-LED-Bulb-1157-Rouge-Red-Turn-Signal-Tail-Side-Marker-Stop-Upgrade-/131520329391 They make a good difference, plus they are supposed to last forever.

Re: Door rubber seals

Have found this seller at Amazon that sells this rubber seals for doors. The profile of this one is exactly ( give or take some milimeters) to the originals. He's been very helpfull and can arrange the rubber to be sold in the specific lenght required for our 480s ( of wich I'm no sure yet as I don'...

Re: Engine won't start.......advice please

Also worth checking all the wiring to the injectors is fine and complete. Wiring to injector #1 tends to break.

Door rubber seals

Anyone knows the correct size / shape of the door rubber seals.
Mine are done.

Would something like this do the job?

Re: Flashing abs light

Yes. It does screw off. But you'll need to link some kind of rod to make lever with the allen key. Put lots of paper around the abs pump as a good quantity of brake fluid will come off the accumulator. I have asked some of the Ebay sellers about the thread size and I am waiting for answer to ckeck c...

Re: Oli's 1992 Volvo 480ES Limited Edition

That's a really good looking one. I had a two tone turbo in my sight for some weeks here in Spain, but had to let it pass. It's absolutely true that it's better to get a decent unit with less things to take car of than go for the cheap 1000 eur ones and lots of stuff to be done. Congrats on your pur...

Re: Flashing abs light

Now comes the issue of finding a suitable replacement at "non Jaguar" prices. I've been searching for a suitable replacement at a “480“ price. It looks like mitsubishi pajeros should fit, also Ford Sierra, Granada, Scorpio and some VW of the same era share the same sphere. It would need to be checke...

Re: Didn’t pass MOT/TÜV…Spanish ITV

After replacing the hoses following the MAF for a good set free of tears and leaks idle has come to something more like normal.....more like it used to be before. But still suffering from the same problem. Idle is at 1000 rpm while cold but raises up to 1200-1300 as it warms up. Things done this far...

Re: Didn’t pass MOT/TÜV…Spanish ITV

I have finally got hold of a original set of a later turbo being scrapped at the Netherlands. So I won't be trying that tempting silicone set. I mean, it was 205€ shipping included. I got an original set, a maf, and some other small hoses and sensors for 100 shipping included wich is more like regul...

Also checked MAF resistance: was at 190. turned it up to 320 and it's ready to go in once I find a set of new hoses. Has anyone tried t...
