Disconnect the battery and wires going to the starter. If air charge tube is in the way you can remove it. I am not looking at a S-70 turbo right now but sure that I have never had to remove intake to R&R a starter. There might be a bracket on the passenger side of starter with a 12mm bolt into the front of the engine and two 10mm nuts onto the starter. Remove two 13mm stud bolts that hold starter in place and slide out. New starter goes in reverse order.

Volvo won't start. Key will only go into 1st & 2nd position wont go into neutral. The battery is charged. We have found info that the starter wire (black one next to red one) could be corroded but

It might be the ignition switch. Not the starter. If you aren't even turning the engine over then it's probably the switch or the solenoid on the starter. If it's the solenoid then just replace the whole starter.

The problem is the starter motor vauxhall zafira 2.2 petrol the engine will turn over but its making a sort of wining noice as if its not teeth r not conecting to start engine over also smells of a burning...

I am not that familiar with vauxhall but starters are pretty universal it sounds as if starter is not engaging flywheel all the way either because of aexterior shimming problem during assembly or if this is something new without anyone disturbing original starter it could be solenoid that engages starter pinion to flywheel getting worn out and not engaging all the way or I have even seen where the teeth were not exacly the same angle or even count on a new exact fit oem replacement starter all of which could cause your symptoms

Starter motor engages when motor is running

Check your Solenoid Most likely bad and needs replaced, but it could be key switch not returning, or return spring on the starter bedix and you may need to replace your starter. It would be best to just replace your starter... Usually no way around it everything wears out eventually and this is a common problem when Solenoid is going bad, just had to replace it this summer on Our Ford Truck it was doing the same thing..

Hope that this advice is helpful and gives you a place to start Please or/and leave a testimonial for my advice and if I can further assist let me know.

I recently got a quote to replace all four brakes, install a new water pump and replace a bearing on the front tire for my 1998 s70. The quote for all of these was almost $1500. Is this at all reasonable?

Replacing all brakes - disks and pads included - about $600
Replacing a bearing on the front - about $350
Replacing a new water pump - pump included - about  $700
As you can see your quote is a good offer but if you search around you might get an even better one.

Wont start turns over and clicks even with battery charger on jump start mode

Sounds like a bad starter. Even though the battery is charged the starter is to week to turn the motor over. Try replacing the starter and see it that helps. If that does not work. Go to a dealership mechanic. Thanks for asking!

My 1997 Volvo 850 always needs to have a jump start in the morning. I havent changed the sparks plugs in years, could this be the problem?

Sounds like a battery problem. Make sure that all your lights are off inside the car. Check your visor light too. Ive seen broken visors that wont turn the bulb off when shut and drain the battery over night.

Get your battery tested also to make sure it can hold the cranking amps needed for starting.
