Re: Heated seats wiring

Yep. You're right.

White to white /grey.

Black to black.

I understand you would have already plugged the wiring also at the back of the central console

Re: Motorbike sidecar with 480 front orange indicator light

There has been a small Italian manufacturer who used actual Volvo 480 front lights. Can't remember which one, though. Think Robert, think! Though this has been previously discussed in other threads, how is the Dutch Club search of the rear lights molds? Last I read was that Hella? destroyed them ba...

Re: Cigarette Lighter

Take off the ashtray. Unscrew the one at the bottom. Remove cube on top of the ashtray (or equalizer if you happen to have one) et voilá. The bulb holder is a black plastic brick, replace the bulb. That side beam light is perfect as it heads one beam towards the ashtray light and the other to the ci...

Re: Front speakers

4x6 was my choice, though as said, don't fit straight in and needs some drilling of the plastic. I went for coaxial ones but fitting a 2way may be possible.

Tomorrow I will be at the car. I will send some pictures if the blunder I made.

Re: Front speakers

For rear speakers you mean the ones in the side pannel of the cubby hole ones? I have the cubby hole setup and when it came the time to replace them I found they're specific measure for the hole. No manufacturer makes an aftermarket replacement for them. I managed to fit after some DIY, and some iso...

Re: WANTED: Original tweeter

Alpine tweeters fit perfectly. they even have a nut hole in the back to fix it to the door pannel like the originals.

Much better sound than the originals

Looks nice that interior, and the connectors are almost on their way to you :) Yes John. it looks superb. If you allow me to tell, John did the great favour, that only a true 480 enthusiast can do, of bringing me the whole interior leather set ( celebration pannels, dash stripes and both sides heig...

Yes. I tried the Partsbook first thing. The two sides of the socket come with different part numbers .

Re: Heated seats wiring

Those pictures of the seats were taken like 45 mintes after aplying the wax, once I had all the plastics, knobs and levers back in place around the side of the seats. The day after part of the shine was gone, thank God, and the leather looks close to new. I will try and post pictures of the final re...
