SOURCE: volvo 850 turbo wagon motor mount failed inspection

if this is the right front mount just behind the r/f wheel that would be ok, if this is the top mount on the engine below the windsheild go to IPD Volvo site and get the mount and do it yourself (easy)

Sounds like you either left something loose or lost a piece of shielding. Was there a filter on the antenna that you forgot to put back on?

SOURCE: odometer does not work

This is a common problem with all models of volvo, with the non digital odometer  pre 1998,, there is a tiny nylon gear deep inside the odometer that needs to be replaced. Your dealer will not fix it, but will put in a new one for you as the cost of fixing in labour is more than a new one,, My solution is much cheeper,, I have
many low milage VOLVO odometer/instr clusters, a few hi'r km 1s


ODOMETERS FROM 1987-PRESENT
I have many pre 1998 Volvo instrument clusters, most with Very low milage, almost all in Km, I have most models of Volvo.

at these prices IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE AN EXTRA ONE , comes with detailed instructions -with pictures-on how to remove your old one and re-install

just for example
I have 4,, 1994-1997 850/s70/v70 /c70turbo with less than 10,000 km
2 1994-1997 850/s70/v70/c70 non turbo with less than 10,000 km
1 1990 740 -940 turbo with less than 4.000 kms

I also have many Volvo instrument clusters from 1987 to PRESENT with varied milage,,let me know what year and model and milage you are looking for,, I will have something close

WILL SHIP ANYWHERE IN N.AMERICA

Volvo 1994 850 wagon. The gas cap door will not open when the car is unlocked. Is there a way to manually release the door so we can put gas in? Any repair ideas?


Inside the cargo area just about where the door is on the outside there is a manual release. It is a little plastic handle on a tiny metal cable.

What is wrong with my 96 Volvo 850 cd player (no disc changer)?


The motors for the eject tend to strip out (several very small plastic gears. Hopefully this is not the problem because it is impossible to find parts. The other option is that dust/dirt have built up inside and the sensor does not feel/see the disk you are trying to insert. Use a can of compressed air (office store - sold to clean computer keyboards, printers, ...). Spray into the cd slot to remove dust.

Why does my forester roof leak?


Once source of leaks is the rubber tube that runs from the roof line to the rear hatch, and contains the rego plate light, rear window heater and locking circuits. Look at the seals under the hatch hinges. If there's nothing obvious, pull some of the internal headers to see where the water is coming from. May still be the moon roof. Water will run down any available slope.

I have a 2003 Honda Civic EX coupe. Installed aftermarket radio cd player and the cd works but the radio does not. The issue is not with the new unit as the previous player's radio would not work either....


If you're getting power to the CD player then there's power
to the radio. The antenna involves the grid on the rear window,
an antenna coil and cable to the radio. You can check the
grid for a break and if it's small you're auto parts store will
have a repair kit. My 05 Accord rear window defogger did
not work and it took Honda 2 attempts to repair it. Other
than checking the grid I would bring it to the dealer.

The radio on my 2004 Tiburon gets only static on every station, however the CD player works perfectly fine. Solutions?


if it has a built into the window antenna, install a real one on the fender. if it has an antenna which retracts and extends automatically, replace it with a real one. if it has a good antenna, make sure it is actually plugged into the back of the radio.

1995 volvo 850 turbo wagon will not start all of a


You can check 2 things. 1., have someone in the car to turn the key to the start position. Tap the starter with a small hammer and see if it cranks. If it does, replace the starter. 2., have the battery tested as well as the connections to the battery. Corrosion builds and can cause heavy resistance to heavy loads(like starting). These are the 2 most likely causes. Let me know if you need further assistance.

VOLVO 850 RADIO/CD REPLACEMENT


Yes, its simply to remove the radio wich is there (two clamps, one on each side) retract the connectors.
You might need to buy a compartment to conceal the part of the opening that will be exposed when removing the bigfront-radio.
(Volvo-dealers can help you) And a cableset wich contains the connectors to the Radio-connectors in the 850 and directly to the radio you buy. (Most radio-dealers hava all kinds)

New radio mounts in only e few hours. All included.
Theese Volvos are very well prepeared for this.

My AM/FM Radio in my 2006 Ford Crown Vic does not receive a signal. I have power, but no signal, I've been told the wire has likely come loose in the trunk area. Where would the wire for the antenna be...


Your antenna is built into the rear window. You should be able to see the connection in the upper part of the trunk under the back window. If it isn't loose there, I suspect your antenna wire has come loose from the rear of your radio, or else the antenna wire is damaged somewhere in between the radio and the rear window. You'll have to pull it out and inspect it.
