    Also wondering if I can replace the speakers with aftermarket speakers (4") and keep the original Volvo covers on them.  Possible?

It's worse than that. Those are not "tamper-proof screws", those are aluminum pop rivets. (Then again, they are even more tamper-proof than screws.) Once you get the door panel off you will see that each rivet splits into four legs that splay out to hold the speaker frame sandwiched between the grill and the fiberboard door panel. You can remove them but it took me some time with stout needle-nosed pliers to un-splay the legs, and ultimately a Dremel tool to cut them off. What a cheap PITA way to attach a speaker.

Theoretically, you should be able to replace the OEM speaker with a skinny 4" one but you will need to fabricate an adapter ring so there is something solid on which to mount the new speaker. Also, you will need to tape flat Tinnerman nuts to the back side of the panel so the screws you shoot through the grill will have something to bite into. It won't be pretty but it should work.

yes you can, 1991 Dodge Dynasty Ignition Switch

Things You'll Need

  • Screwdriver
  • Tamper-proof Torx driver
  • Ignition key
Instructions
    • 1 Remove the plastic cover from the steering column. The cover is two pieces held together by screws that thread through the bottom piece of plastic into the top piece. Remove the screws and pull the cover off. This exposes the large square ignition switch. The key cylinder connects to the ignition switch.
    • 2 Remove the tamper-proof Torx screws that secure the ignition to the steering column using a tamper-proof Torx driver. You can get this type of Torx driver from your local auto part store.
    • 3 Pull the wiring harness out of the ignition switch.
    • 4 Place the ignition key into the cylinder and turn it onto the auxiliary position. Push the metal pin on the ignition switch in using a screwdriver and slide the ignition cylinder half way out of the ignition switch. Turn the key to the off position and slide the cylinder all the way out of the ignition switch.
    • 5 Place the key into the new cylinder, slide the cylinder into the ignition switch half way. Turn the key to the auxiliary position and slide the cylinder in the rest of the way. Remove the key from the cylinder.
    • 6 Press the wiring harness onto the ignition switch.
    • 7 Secure the switch to the steering column using the tamper-proof Torx driver.
    • 8 Place the covers back onto the steering column and secure them using the screwdriver.

How do you remove hand brake cover on volvo 1990 240 GL?


Push the seats all the way forward and you will find screws on either side at the rear corners. After removing the screws, you slide it forward toward the dash about a half inch to unhook the front, then lift it out.
The amazing thing is that you still have a cover to take out. Most of them were dashed to bits by kids years ago.

Replacing volvo 240 head light unit


There can be slight variations in procedure from one model to another when replacing headlights. For instance, on some models the turn signal light assembly must be removed before the headlight can be replaced. Overall, however, the procedure does not differ much from the following typical instructions.
Make sure the replacement bulb is the same type and part number as the one that is being replaced.

To Replace:
  • Remove the headlight bezel retaining screws. Remove the bezel. If necessary, disconnect the turn signal lamp wires.
  • Remove the retaining ring screws from one or both lights.
  • Remove the retaining rings.
  • Remove the light from the housing. Disconnect the wiring connector from the back of the light.
  • Push the wiring connector onto the prongs at the rear of the new light.
  • Place the new light in the headlight housing. Position it so the embossed number in the light lens is on the top.
  • Place the retaining ring over the light and install the retaining ring screws. Tighten them slightly.
  • Check the aim of the headlight and adjust it, if necessary.
  • Install the headlight bezel. Secure it with the retaining screws.
  • Connect the turn signal lamp wiring (if it was disconnected).

Trying to replace ignition switch cant get steering wheel off


You'll need a special tool called a steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. Then the ignition switch is screwed in by tamper proof torx. You'll need tamper proof torx bit to remove the screws that hold the ignition switch on.
