Don't remember exactly , but I think it could be done without dash removal.
It's done from driver side footwell area , tight but possible.
You have to take out lower center consol side cover , next to the accelerator pedal and roll the carpet out of the way, and you will see the heater core case. Remove cover on the case (some have it on the side , some on the bottom).Two pipes going from firewall to the core have to be disconnected before core removal (will leak coolant , have some rags on the floor to absorbe it).
Slide heater core out , put new one in gently as the accelerator pedal is on your way , try to avoid damaging core a lot.
Always replace heater core pipes o-rings.

98Volvo s70 heater core just replaced and now it smells like oil and there is an oily film on the inside of the windshield. Why?


That sounds like a fault in the cylinder head gasket. Check your oil for water, it makes the underside of the filler look like grey mayonnaise. Check the coolant for oil. And then you have a leak in the pipes to the heater core or the core itself.

Or is may be that when the heater core leaked, the coolant fell on oil or grease and it is drying out?

I need to replace the heater core on my 1998 Volvo S70 but I'm having difficulty removing the glove box. I have removed all 6 of the Torx screws but the glove box won't come loose on the left side. An


IPD's website has a great video on the site that shows you step by step how everything comes apart and goes back together to change Heater Cores. It would be easier for you to watch that than have me explain. You have probably missed a screw somewhere.

I NEED A HEATER HOSE DIAGRAM FOR MY 98 VOLVO S70 T5 TURBO PRIOR OWNER BYPASSED THE HEATER THANK YOU JAMES CUMMINGS


You will likely need the heater hose junction (Volvo p/n 3522035) since it always leaks and it connects the heater core to the heater hoses on the firewall. The kit usually contains the retaining clips, but not the O-rings to connect to the heater core. You will also need the outlet and inlet hoses (9186847 and 9186849). The length, angles and configuration of these hoses will help you understand their orientation in the engine bay. They can only go on one way. Else, they won't connect to the pipes from the engine.

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

Your heater core is leaking. The smell and smoke is from the coolant evaporation.
