Re: Parts for the venetian blind

I ordered mine from Shapeways and I am very happy with them. It would be great if the intermediate ladder "rungs", that hold each slat in place could also get made... Stephen Great to hear that they are working well. I do not have a complete blind, unfortunately, but if you could send me the part, ...

Re: Subframe mounting

looks to be 25mm too much in height, and you could ADD depth to bring up to correct dims, but not really take it away, unless the height listed is INCLUDING the threaded section? the gap beteeen the bolts could be 'adjusted'? needs a trip to a dealer or motor factor to check REAL sizes, not those f...

Re: Subframe mounting

This is oil filled and very difficult to get hold of. Do your homework on here with search. I'd recommend getting one second hand from a late 440/460 that is being scrapped. You won't get a new one as far as we know here yep NLA as far as we can establish :-( really need to find an alternative, eit...

Parts for the venetian blind

Hello, I have been modelling a few 3d models of the most brittle components in the Venetian blind for a friend. I was wondering if there is interest for such parts to either organize a small batch (if I can print them myself) or just make it available through Shapeways The parts: https://i.postimg.c...

Re: 480 turbo boost loss

If you cannot reach it just leave the old one in and run a new one. That should be doable without removing much else.

Re: Polar Parts Quality

In my experience with 240 and 480 stuff polar parts is a good alternative and use some unique parts (at least when I bought them they were the only one to have the strut mounts). The only problems I had was with the front drop links that were longer than the originals and rubbed against the inner fe...

Re: engine mounts?

That is fantastic, I may try this. Any idea if the Hydraulic damper also has a citoren counterpart? ;-) if you refer to the damper with the code: VOLVO (3447758) VOLVO (447758) you can still find the original one, look for "STABILUS 8484AX" Let us know if you get one of those mounts, I think many h...

Re: shocks

Consider changing also a few other bits along with the shocks absorbers. The most important would be the strut mount, even more so if you are putting sporty gas shock absorbers that will make the old dry ones work even harder. also, don't forget to buy new strut mount bearing and a new dust covers /...

Re: Turbo breather valve (PCV)

Hi, here you can find some pictures from the Volvo service manual, https://imgur.com/a/cMdH8 should help you understand how the valve works. It is important to note that it's tree things in one, a non-return valve to avoid pressurising the crankcase, a diaphragm valve balanced with atmospheric press...

Re: WANTED: Original tweeter

If the coil is burnt there is not much to do, but you should be sure you are bypassing the capacitor as it is in series. You can bridge the capacitor to briefly test the tweeter. I can see that 2.2uF 50V or 100V are more common. just make sure they are NP (non polar) 50v should be already enough. An...

Re: WANTED: Original tweeter

Just for the records if I remember correctly, the capacitor on early models will give up before the tweeter itself as they used electrolytic capacitor that are not suited for the job, later they got replaced with proper non polar capacitors, so if you have a non functioning tweeter you might want to...

I immersed them in a bucket of boiling hot water and let it soak for a while, then I carefully pried them apart. Only to find out that the reflective layer inside the lens was completely gone! :eek: So be prepared to add a coat of reflective paint onto the reflector, to restore the brightness of th...

You have to drill your own holes on the flaps, and it is a little bit tricky, start from the top one and maybe ask a friend to check from a distance if the "Volvo" writing is parallel to the car. in the back you will need to repl...

Hello everyone, I would like to disassemble the lenses of the front clusters in order to repaint the internal reflective material, I have two sets of orange indicators both with nice lenses but very dull interiors.
