Front Door Spring - '87 Volvo 245DL Wagon[ALL/1998] posted by Peter Bins on
Monday, 5 May 1997, at 7:07 p.m.

There is a spring near the door hinges which prevents the door from swinging fully open. Mine sheared off.

So I have two questions:

Who knows how to replace a front door spring?

Where can I get a new/used spring? (Anybody have a spare?)

While we're talking spare parts, I need a replacement cap to my radiator overflow tank... No doubt the dealership has one... but it's a 1.5 hr drive round trip to the dealership and no doubt they'll want me to mortgage my minibike to buy a new one.
