Question about 1996 Volvo 960

1 Answer

Passenger seat doing the same thing

My passenger side front seat on my 1996 volvo 960 seems is doing a very similar action. It reclines just fine, but when attempting to go forward and back, one of the tracks starts to move the seat but the other side won't move causing the seat to rotate a little until it simply stops. Haven't had time to investigate the track to see if something is blocking it, but will attempt that first. Thanks

SOURCE: I'm currently interested in a 1996 volvo 960;

These cars feature great engines, so-so interior bits (peeling door panels), crappy electronics (poor solder joints in components) and problematic climate control.

I would get a 940 or 940 turbo over a 960 and I own two 960's currently. (as well as a 940T). The 940's have much simpler engine systems and are very robust. The engine is a non-interference design so a broken timing belt doesn't ruin the engine. Parts on the 940 are about half of what the 960 is....I could go on.

Passenger side seat stuck in recline 1996 328i bmw


This is either an electrical problem or the infamous twisted seat problem caused by the cables between the motors and reclining gear units of the power seat.
Check the connector under the front of the seat and make sure it has not been disconnected
listen to determine whether the motor at the front of the seat are turning when you try to move the seat (they are fairly quiet)
If the motor spins, then search internet for "bmw twisted seat"
good luck

The electric seats will not adjust forward or backward. The up and down and recline works good though.


Look on the outside edge of where the seat back and bottom meet.There is supposed to be a spring there that holds a peice against a micro switch.That is what controls the seat so when you fold it foward the seat slides to allow access to the rear seat.The plastic that holds the spring on the one side breaks.If you can find the metal peice and hold it against the switch you will be able to atleast move the seat.

How can I remove front row seat headrest?


Most volvo headrest can be removed by releasing the catches which are on the back of the headrest on some models and on the front on others I believe on 960 they are on the back. To release the seat on a 960 look where the shafts should be then follow it down on the back where the seat back top stops then goes in press around that area you should be able to find the catch there pull up on the headrest while releasing the catch you have to do this on both sides. The headrest should come off this also works on 740 and 760 series the volvo 780 is a different story the only way to get the headrest off on that is to disassemble the seat

1996 Volvo 960 has low air conditioning flow while accelerating


Faced similar problem. Open up the dash, change all the 4 vacuum bellows and the 2 vaccum hoses connected from the firewall to the bellow on the driver's side. Also replace the 2 valve in the hood which are connected into the firewall. Problem of losing air during acceleration solved.
