URGENT: need throttle brass screw

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

URGENT: need throttle brass screw

Post by gsa60 » Sun Jan 13, 2019 3:57 pm

Hi,
I need urgently the theottle brass screw that adjusts the idle. It's for a 91 turbo.

Anyone has one that can sell?

Part number is 3344818 (no longer available, surprise, surprise)‎. Parts book has this used on the 2.0 cars too so that should widen your search a bit.

If this #3 is indeed the screw you're worried about, just use anything to plug the hole. There's no use for it. Let alone for adjusting idle.

Given this post are you still needing a blanking screw? I got sort of distracted today with drive shaft issues :(
