Look for a rubber protective cap and remove it. Use an allen wrench to unscrew the pin.

My Brake lights won't work on a 1998 Volvo S70


There are several possible reasons. Obvious ones might be checking for fuses that are burned out. Second would be making sure you are getting good connections to your brake lamps (all 3). Third, check the brake light switch at the pedal. And last, Volvo Part Number 9442303 is a brake lamp failure relay that can go bad. It's not inexpensive, but probably more than likely the issue. One way to check is to find out if your cruise control works. If it does not, it is likely the relay. It is grey and flat on all sides. Earlier model Volvos had round red ones. Check the location in the service manual.

I recently got a quote to replace all four brakes, install a new water pump and replace a bearing on the front tire for my 1998 s70. The quote for all of these was almost $1500. Is this at all reasonable?


Replacing all brakes - disks and pads included - about $600
Replacing a bearing on the front - about $350
Replacing a new water pump - pump included - about  $700
As you can see your quote is a good offer but if you search around you might get an even better one.

Check, visually for brake pad contamination. Especially inboard brake pad/ Any fluid leakage should be visible through holes in wheel or on the backside of wheel. If no leak or contamination abs can be in question as suggested.

  3. Remove the wheel(s).
  4. Disconnect any ABS wires, if equipped.
  5. Clean the brake caliper thoroughly and remove the dust caps from the bleeder nipple.

  7. Remove the brake pads and disconnect the brake pipes from the caliper.

  2. Install the caliper and new mounting bolts. Tighten the bolts to 44 ft. lbs. (60 Nm).
  3. Connect the brake line to the caliper and tighten to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
  4. Grease the brake pad shims with a thin layer of silicon grease. Put the shims on the back of the pads and install them in the caliper.
  5. Install one retaining pin, spring then the other retaining pin.
  6. Fill the brake master cylinder and bleed the brake system.
  7. Connect any ABS wires, unfastened earlier.
