Re: My spanking volvo 480 has lots of electrical problems

Congratulations on your purchase, and welcome to the club. You are in the right place for lots of help. I can help with the boot leaking - it's probably the rear light seals in combination with the hatch seal and electrical connection. Rear lights are gold dust so be very careful removing them and m...

Jay-Kay-Em
If it was a tie break, what was the weight of a seat, headlamp and boss?
Jeff didn't get round to to the weight, so you would have won, Al's scales made it 13.5kg so your 14.45kg was closest

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

by dcwalker Thanks also to those who joined in with such gusto, especially Jeff, Jay and Al (although I suspect Al knew Sylvia would kill him if he didn't... ;). as intuitive as ever... mind, I nearly killed him when he announced he couldn't remember his password and hadn't done anything about it. ...

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Well, the outright winner of the roads challenge was jifflemon, the only one who managed to do it in 3 so we didn't need the tiebreakers. Jay-Kay-Em has to be the winner of the name challenge, being the only entrant, but he would probably have won anyway. A big thank you to everyone who joined in wi...

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Sylvia; Re. your "Turnip" conundrum... I would call the 480 "School Report"........ because it never quite reached its potential. o very good, the old 'could do better' (I had plenty of those!), so true of the 480 If they had given the 480 Turbo 150-160bhp, which it was perfectly capable of doing, ...

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

mmm, wonder if that is deliberate or error ? Some people don't have standard suspension. It's the sort of thing jifflemon will pick up on straight away

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

We have a shortage of engine bay pics, does anyone have one still to post ? We were supposed to start the quiz at 7.30 but there only seem to be a very few people online at the moment. Even jifflemon seems to have disappeared. I really wanted to do it 'live' so there wasn't time to look the answers ...

Hello KCantle and welcome to the forum ! I'm sure you will get lots of help with your problem on here, but can I just change the subject and ask for details of your car for the Celebration Register ?

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Engine bay competition - post your photo on the forum for judging by Jeff, who is giving a prize for this one – will he choose the cleanest or maybe the most original, or perhaps he’ll look for an interesting work-around for a common 480 problem or a nifty gadget. Here’s my pic of Lily’s bay https:/...

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Here’s my project: As Snazzy is both ‘just’ an ES and very high mileage (230k), she is the least valuable of our 480s so she is going ‘non standard’ in some respects. I’d like to copy this idea on the headlights: https://www.dragonflyjewel.co.uk/sylvia/blackout.jpg So, what to use to blackout the h...

Re: May 23rd Virtual Mini Meet

Afternoon challenge: Inspired by a member on here who called his 480 Turnip, because it wasn’t quite a Swede What’s a good name for a 480 and why ? Answers to me by pm, deadline 6pm NB I'll extend the morning challenge deadline to 6pm as well, as quite a few of us couldn't get online this morning.
