Wanted, auto speedo sensor

Cleaned up the garage, found parts laying around, but it turned out to be a complete Volvo 480? If you want to sell your car (480 only) you can place an advert here.

As above really.

Need a speedo pick up for an auto Turbo.

Anyone have one?

Cheers,

I searched high and low for one, for a long time, then came across one which had been listed on a NOS parts aggregate site by a dealership in Cork, Ireland.. cost me €18 delivered, don't fancy my chances getting a new Volvo part again...

Not necessarily after a new one, just a known good one would do.

RobouMod + no speedo = no license soon! :(

There are only two kinds of speedo sensors fitted to the 480.

3413744-8 up till model year 1992
3467846-6 from model year 1993 onwards

No difference in what gearbox or engine is used. That, or the parts book may be entirely wrong.

I am currently scrapping a 1990 Turbo with a good speedo sensor (at least it was working when I was driving it to the slaughterhouse :twisted: ), so I can use that one as a reference when looking for alternatives.

Most of the cars listed above have mechanical speedometers, the 306 (and probably the ZX and Xantia too) have electronic speedo sensors, but they don't look like the ones in our cars.

Hmm...

That throws a spanner in the works.

My car is a '92/'93!!

Red ecu, older font on the clocks. I'd hazard a guess at the older type.

You can tell by the identification (chassis) number.
MY 1992 ends at 580385
MY 1993 starts at 581000

Ah, mine's a 460T so don't think those numbers apply.

My chassis number ends 294030.

The VIN for your Volvo 460 Turbo automatic is composed as follows:
XLB = Volvo, L = 460, X = no SRS or seat belt tensioners, 19 = B18FT-engine, 3 = auto box, E = Europe, x = model year, C = Born, Netherlands, yyyyyy = serial number. (Apparently, they never envisaged to build more than a million cars :lol: )
so it looks like
XLBLX193ExCyyyyyy

You can determine the model year here: https://www.volvoclub.org.uk/vin_400.shtml

If yours is model year 1992, the letter "N" should be in the model year, otherwise it is a "P" for 1993.
e.g.
XLBLX193ENC294030 is 1992
or
XLBLX193EPC294030 is 1993

Piss off you!! :kill:

I've been busy buying C70 ragtops!

Besides, this car will NEVER be fixed. Less broken is more like it.
