[AWD] [V70-XC70] [2004] uneven pad wear, front

When you removed the old pads, I assume that they were worn evenly. Now, the pads appear to be touching all of the time. So, is the spring properly in place? I suspect this a mechanic error, not a mechanical error. And, NO, do not continue driving like this and do not blame the pads! -- Keeping it running is better than buying new

[RWD] [200] [1976] A few notes on what may have been confusing

Some well-intended help in this thread. I take it the thumbs are all A's for effort. The thing is, most of us, including myself, are not familiar with the 1976 242.

And they knew it, between Volvo adding the SRS and VDO supplying a new cluster design every year to keep up. They had VDO fashion a Rube Goldberg reset cable for the Service Reminder mileage counter. In yours, you can put the Service Engine light out by poking a recess in the cluster's front panel. By now you've got removing the cluster...

[AWD] [850] 201K on a GIFT '96 wagon!

Hello again, I hesitated to tell you the outcome but the satisfaction of closing out this story outweighs my shame. On Tuesday, June 12, pouring 5 gallons of fresh fuel into the 850 started my day. I installed the odd battery the owners had laying around. It had been on a trickle charger for days-as per my instruction-and the engine leapt to life. My gas was enough to extinguish the LOW FUEL light. I let the engine run throughout my "fun morning". The borrowed "200 PSI" mini-compressor di...
