Question about 1999 Volvo S80
How do I replace a 99 Volvo S80 water pump? I would like a service repair manual, but I cannot find one for 1999 Volvo S80 2.9L at all! Do they even make one? I saw a CD manual, but not a paper manual. I am looking for advice on this so I can get started., please.
If this helps.. I had the 1998 model S70. the water pump was driven by the timing belt. you had to take the timing belt off just to replace the water pump. it was just a simple bolt on replacement. the only difficult issue is resetting the hydraulic tensioner on the timing belt. the hydraulic tensioner has to be completely taken off and compressed VERY SLOWLY in a vise. then insert a very hard drill bit or (special volvo tool) into a keeper hole, reinstall hydraulic tensioner onto car and reinstall timing belt.very quickly remove drill bit from keeper hole in tensioner and the tensioner snaps back out to put tension on belt. and you are done.
