You must take the car to a Volvo dealer so they can reference the code from the VIN number. If you call it in, they only assume you stole the radio. Sometimes you have to prove you own the car.

SOURCE: 1998 Volvo S70 left turn signal does not work

That return spring mechanism, is in the 'airbag clockspring' or we call it a contact reel. this is a VERY expensive part. You can take your switch off of the steering column, there is a white button sticking out, you should be able to manipulate that up and down (for left and right movement) if you can verify that the switch cancels while you manually do it, its the clockspring, if you can not do it in one direction only, then its the switch

Firing order

Volvo 240/740/760/780/940/960 1990-1998
FIRING ORDERS printpage_icon.gif

See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4
To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason, it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired.

Name that 1998 Volvo S70 part.....

This part will only be available through a Volvo dealer or maybe used from a junkyard. It is the metal base that bolts to the intake cam and the rotor bolts to it. A Dealer can look it up, there isn't really a name, just describe where it attaches to.
