Tie rods on Volvo C70

Greetings from North Carolina. I have a 2004 Volvo C70. I have limited mechanic skills (!) but with four (4) children currently in college I have zero in the pot for auto repairs. Recently had an oil change/free alignment and they told me the front tie rods would need to be replaced soon. Car seems to have some front end instability so I believed them. Is this something an amateur with basic tools could fix? thanks for the input! H. Maxwell

Unless you have air tools with and air compressor. Your going to have to pry off those tie rod with a air hammer with a prying fork. It not that expensive. Buy the tie rods yourself so you dont get stiffed and call around for the best deal.

I need to replace the alternator in my 2000 c70 volvo but I am not sure how difficult a job this is for my less than average mechanical skills. How hard is it? Thank-you


ts not hard its on top at least. the belt tensioner uses a special tool to release but ive improvised one a few times, the labor rate on that shouldnt be that much so a shop should be considered

When i hit the brakes hard and fast the front end makes a clunk noiseon the driver side.


the most probable cause of that clunk is the radius arm bushings need replacing i have done LOTS of those . if you are not a mechanic or have limited skill this repair is fairly difficult..( not being rude just trying to save you a headache ) the radius arm extends rearward from front axle to frame..one on each side . look at the bushings where it goes through the frame bracket there should be a rubber bushing on both sides of that frame bracket and they should be compressed with no gap.. i hope that helps

Answer Ijust tried this with my 2004 C70 and it worked.
Cheers!

To reset your service light here are the steps.

1. Get in your car and shut the door.
2. Put your key in the ignition
3. Turn your ignition key to position 1
4. Push in your Odometer reset button and hold it in while holding it move the ignition key to position 2 while holding down the odometer reset button.
5. After couple of seconds of holding the button down and the key in position 2 your service light will start to blink once that happens let go of the reset button and start the car.

This should reset your service light and a service light on your Volvo C/S/V70 cars from 1999 onwards.
