Question about Volvo C70

1 Answer

Bought a 2004 C70 today, & suddenly the driver's power seat moves weirdly. some times works, but sometimes don't move and after 10 seconds it moves by itself while I was driving **;; Which part do I need to repair or replace? I took a look at it and I could hear frequent 'ticking' sounds under the seat ( where I can see many cables hooked & connected ...) Do I need to change some switches down there? Or how much is it gonna cost to fix it @ Volvo dealer ? Thank you

Start simple. Previous owners may have spilled something in the switches on the side of the seat. Use some compressed air to blow out anything stuck in the switch. Go to gas station and use tire inflator if you dont have a compressor. Put some rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and try to clean as much as you can on and behind the switch as good as you can. This should free up the switch and stop the "ghost".

2000 C70 driver seat motor 'chatters' & won't adjust

Try a simple trick I have used on many Volvos. You will need several paper towels and a can of WD40. With the ignition off soak the switch until it overflows with WD40 and work it in all it's directions for 5 minutes and repeat. The WD40 will clean the contacts which is the normal problem.
