SOURCE: 1998 v70 awd depressing brake pedal does not

Most of the time the "shift lock microswitch" fails. you have to remove the center console and replace the switch. The dealer will have the switch in stock it's so common. I suggest a reputable Volvo shop do the repair since there is a chance the plastic will break due to age. It's not that involved of a repair, but the plastic gets weaker as the car gets older.

If your dead set you may be able to find the instructions on either V70R.COM of BRICKBOARD.COM

hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to changehead light bulbs on volvo v70

To gain access to the bulbs, you need to go under the bonnet (/hood) and remove the housing cover on the reverse side of the light units.
Should just be a simple clip, but make sure that it doesn't fly out of your sight;)
Relatively simple for the rears too.
Just plastic covers on the reverse side of the units, with clips that could break, if you are too rough with them.
Have fun.

2005 Corolla's manual trasmission shifts gears, it clunks

hi mate , sounds like the SPIGOT bearing its a little bearing that allows the gearbox to be at a different seed than the engine flywheel and if this is in bad condition it will take the gearbox front shaft to a higher speed than comfortable for gearshift , in the meantime when you go for 1st or reverse gear just engage a gear like 4th without taking your foot off the clutch and then go for 1st or reverse, this will stop the gearbox spining long enough for a smooth shif, oNLY USE THIS METHOD WHILE STaTIONARY and see a professional when you get time.
