Re: Bulbs for instruments

"BTW: while you are busy taking out the instrument cluster and gauges, take the time to replace the small T5 bulbs, there are 7 hidden in various places in the dashboard.

Re: 26th October Mini Meet Lincolnshire Wolds

Thanks Sylvia for the hint on the rear hatch seal.

Guessing its the seal in the picture?

Anything else worth grabbing if avaiable? Not sure on compatibility between models.

Re: 26th October Mini Meet Lincolnshire Wolds

Marc Water in a rear foot well will almost certainly have come in via the boot and run forwards (unless you had your window well open in the rain?). First off check the boot carpet because chances are it's saturated underneath...if it is, then I would also recommend taking that back seat out becaus...

Bulbs for instruments

Hi all, I'm looking at replacing the bulbs in a few dash instruments as most seem to have died. The oil pressure/voltage dial cluster uses 3off 966326-1 according to the parts book (which is the same as those used on in the majority of the info. cluster). I'd just like to confirm its this type befor...

Re: 480 on eBay

Can see the CAT badge now! Couldn't see it on my phone.

I didn't realise the 1.7 ever had a cat. I assumed the 1.7 was dropped for emissions reasons and the 2.0 was when the cat was introduced.

What's a 1.7 with cat and auto like to drive? Never tried a 480 auto (not sure I want to either!!).

Re: 26th October Mini Meet Lincolnshire Wolds

Mrs is busy on 26th so will have to come alone (who cheered?? - not me!!).

Will meet up with you at the Toby. Won't be able to stay the night, but would like to eat at the Royal Oak.

Re: Guinness world record attempt......

The website is up but very limited. I guess it will evolve, but FB is where most of the info. presides. https://www.volvo600.co.uk/ There was a launch event at Bruntingthopre this weekend with over 300 cars attending. I know Ashley attended in his 480. Youtube vid here: - https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Re: October Mini Meet Lincolnshire Wolds

Looking forward to this. Finally I can come to a meet!! :hopping:

If you could avoid 19th that would be ideal so :wife: can attend, but I can do most weekends.

Will stay over at the Royal Oak if :wife: is coming.

Thanks Sylvia for organising.

Looking forward to the report on your new exhaust. Mine is booked in for a full system at Demand just before she goes into her winter hibernation.

Re: My 480 life is just beginning!

At last, I have a front lip spoiler! Given the state of the original I'm very pleased. The repaired area has a slightly different profile, but you wouldn't notice it unless you knew what you were looking for. Photo shows it at its worst, but in reality not really noticable. Just pleased to be able t...

Re: WANTED: rear lamps covers

You can try Daniël Lindenburg on the Volvo 480 facebook page. He seems to have a selection of used items in various states (about 130euro/pair). With restoration you should be able to get something presentable. As David said, new (or as new) are very rare. Daniël listed a pair in February for in exc...
