Question about 2000 Volvo S80

1 Answer

I have a 2000 volvo cross country station wagon and underneath the car there is a piece near the exaust that is like thin sheet metal hanging off. I think it is a heat shield. Can I pull it off? Or does it protect the transmission?

    What I found it to be, was the outer aluminum shell that is over the stainless steel muffler to help with the exhaust noise.

I need to find out the radio unlock code for my 2000 Volvo Station Wagon V70 Vin# YV1LZ56D442662009

Few suggestions:

1. check the owners manual to see if the number is written down or found on the Volvo cards.
2. remove the radio, sometimes folks inscribe them on the unit, don't ask why but they simply do!
3. most costly is to take it to the dealer.
