    Ok. i got it to move just a bit after removing and lubricating the the roller on the motor, the motor does turn. How do i check and lubricate the tracking system? Also after replacing the motor, a loud rattle was heard (vibration from the motor).

The first thing to check is the motor it should be under the interior light for operation and next is the tracking system for the sunroof and try to lubricate it so the roof does not hang up these motors on volvo sunroofs are not that strong and even a stuck gasket around the top can make it stuck beacause of the rubber getting hot from the sun

Cigarette lighter in front and in back does not work in my 2000 v 70 volvo i just bought, could that be a fuse?

Definately sounds like a fuse if 2 locations are not working. Cigarette lighters are 2 wires to hook up so to have a faulty port is highly unlikely. Check your owners manual for the fuse location. It will probably not be under the hood in that fuse box but under the steering wheel up and under the dash. No big deal though.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

You should purchase the factory repair manual. With current dealership repair rates at 90 to 120 dollars per hour, It should pay for itself the first time you use it.

If you want a cheaper manual, Chilton's is good if you are technically proficient, and Hayne's is better if you aren't. Both can be purchased at Auto-Zone, NAPA, etc,
