Re: Wanted : Alternator tension nut/assembly, 2.0ltr auto

Hi David, I have never noticed the tensioner before. However the fan belt gave way last year and I got it replaced and no one said about a tensioner being missing, or not there...

Wanted : Alternator tension nut/assembly, 2.0ltr auto

How'd you fellow 480 owners! I'm in a bit of a pickle and need this part ASAP. My smaller fan belt snapped on my 480. Now, the belt configuration is different from the standard set up as I have air-con as the smaller belt drives the a/c unit and the power steering pump. So, to my knowledge it was al...

Re: Volvo 480 2.0l Celebration "Breaking" all parts availabl

Hi there! I have a 2.0ltr celebration and I'm looking for the auxiliary fan belt tensioner for the smaller, secondary belt that powers the alternator and a/c unit.

Re: White N reg Dumbarton

I see this all the time as my mate lives round the corner form it. I have been tempted to nip in and ask if it's for sale ;)

480 celebration still going strong

So this weekend my sexy swede is in getting some jobs done on it before its MOT. Nothing much neede, but the hand break cable was needing replaced and the calipers serviced to free them up a bit. As it's an auto, the last owner never used it, especially when it stood for a while after being SORN in ...

Re: Glasgowjim's spares list

Hi Jim, do you have a passenger side fog lamp for sale, or are they in pairs?

If so, how much for each or individual?

Re: 480 pictures of parts you tend not to see.

See for the speed sensor, is it located on the same place for a 2.0ltr auto?

Re: This looks like showroom condition

What a beauty!!!

I love the original 480 like that. My dad's friend had one exactly the same on an F plate and we had a black on with red piping. Glory days indeed :)

Well spotted, hawk eye!

Re: New lick of paint

Wow! The wheels look immense! Great to see them contrast with the white, like that!

Got myself a white celebration model and I was looking for ideas to make it stand out but not too brash!
