Question about 1990 Volvo 740

1990 volvo 740 gl station wagon crank sunroof

It is a manual sunroof. It is supposed to slide open, and this part works fine. It's also supposed to flip open only the back half, and this part is not working. It lifts the back an inch or so and then it's stuck. Did anybody experience this? What was the solution?
Thank you.

I assume you've discovered the answer by now. At some point, some one has removed the crank. It is not turning far enough to open the vent fully. Just remove the crank and notice there is a locking pin on the side of the knurled knob near the windshield. With a pair of pliers (gently, don't bung up the knurls) rotate the knob until the vent is fully open; replace the crank and you're done.

Chilton or Haines publishes manuals for the 740. Of the two, the Haines offers more direct parts removal and replacement info. The Chilton has too much generic filler. Get either on Ebay for less than $20.

Hi...you see..I have a 1990 740 turbo station wagon ...with sunroof that according to mechanic.. the rain leaks//because the sunroof's drain is clogged


This is easily fixed if it is in fact a clogged drain. Open the sunroof, and you will see a small drain hole at each of the four corners of the opening. The holes drain down through the inner body work, and the water leaks out through a bottom weep hole. Try pouring a few ounces of water down one of the holes, it should flow freely, and you will see it puddle under the car. If the drain is clogged or flows slowly, you must unclog it by blowing compressed air down the hole, or use a long flexible wire to roto-root the clog. Do this for the other three drain holes, and you should be ready for the next rainfall or car wash. While you are at it, clean out the weep holes at the bottom of the rocker panels, there are several holes on each side of the car. Good Luck.

'90 Volvo 740 2.3l turbo water pump install instructons needed


Go to an auto supply store like PEP boys or Advance Auto, etc., and buy a Haynes Repair Manual for the 740. You may be able to consult one at your local library for free. Even if it doesn't cover your model year, the replacement instructions are pretty much the same for all years. in fact even a 240 Volvo manual would be essentially the same. Pay particular attention to the installation instructions....you have to slide the pump on, and then rotate it a few degrees clockwise to make the upper o-ring seal. Good luck!
