how to remove intake manifold V70-XC70

I'd like to replace my POS ETM, but I'm not of the specific steps. I assume I need to remove the intake manifold. Can anyone provide specifics on how to do this. I don't want to make any mistakes.

Thanks,
Joel

    hi,
    no need to remove intake manifold...
    remove fan assembly,
    remove any pipes and hoses in the way,
    disconnect etm multiplug and free the wiring from behind the starter motor bracket,
    undo the 4 10mm head bolts that go vertically upside down and secure etm into manifold,
    remove etm be careful not to ruin gasket (it can be reused)
    put it back together.... then download software or it wont run...
    hope this helps.
    steve.

      Steve,

      I've been asking everyone for that info. I was beginning to think it was some sort of trade secret.

      Thanks,
      Joel

        I agree with just about everything that Steve mentioned in his reply to you. But I would strongly recommend replacing the thin gasket. If you reuse the old one there is a strong possibility that you will throw an air leak code down the line. The gasket is cheap money.

        Once you uninstall the throttle body from the car. goto my website and get yourself some AMSOIL Powerfoam. Spray this in the throttle body unit and let it dissolve all of the tarnish and oil build up. It should clean it with no problem. Once cleaned reinstall the unit and you should be all set.


        Any questions, contact me at rpiescik@weareoil.com .

        Have a great day.

        Bob

        There are pictures on www.volvospeed.com in Bay13 about ETM. Don't think it's a removal, but it is a cleaning. At least it will give you a reference for the procedure mentioned here.

        Good luck

        By the way, Don Willson from VEXED (Volvo Enthusiast eXposing Egregious Design) is going up against Volvo for their POS ETM's and is involved with the news media in getting the message out about their flaw. He is collecting bad ETM's and info related to them for his cause to get Volvo to fess up and pay up. Check out this web site: http://www.volvoxc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6026&page=4&pp=10
        You can write him here if you want to get involved and have your bad ETM sent to him: VEXECvolvo@comcast.net
