Always jack a car by the frame. Also put the jack stands on the frame.

How do i change dashboard lights on volvo 740gl 1988

It's easy. On each bottom side of the instrument cluster is a little blank panel. Use a small flat blade screwdriver to pry those panels off. Then remove the philips screws. Move the stalks to their downward position and pull the cluster out.

You can leave the connectors in place and quarter-turn twist the bulbs out and replace them, or if you have a lot of them burned out, remove the connectors and do all the bulbs once you're in there.

If you want to experiment, head to the nearest junkyard and you'll find it's far easier than you think. :D

Next: remove oil plug let oil drain.
Next: remove oil filter
Next: once drained put new filter on and reinstall the oil plug.
Next: fill with the correct amount or quarts of oil for your vehicle, should say in user's manual. lower the jack and should be good to go.

Lift the car on the side you need to work by using the automobile jack. Place a jack stand under the Ford near the jacking point and raise it so the jack stand can be placed under the frame.

How do I change the starter on a 1990 volvo 740gl. On thursday at 3pm car started no problem. At 6 pm I got nnothing but intsrament lghts. battery and alternator are good. Could it be the starter and do I...

A friend and I replaced mine this past weekend. The starter is located on the drivers side, next to the firewall down some, alittle hard to get to btu not to bad. It will take 2 people one to hold the starter and the other to unbolt the bolts.
You have to jack up the drivers side of the car to get at the bottom bolt.
There are 2 very long bolts that need to be removed.
Before you do that disconnect the battery negative cable and the cables on the starter.
