    Hello all, I have a 2008 C30 T5 and I am having trouble discerning what oil filter housing actually fits my car. I was originally just going to change the diaphragm on the PCV but while trying to take the cap for the diaphragm off, I broke the part of the cap that snaps in the housing itself...

    2011 R Design I’ve had for a couple of months, 97k miles automatic. I have previous owner records, front struts, engine mounts and CV axles replaced about 4k miles ago at Volvo dealership (out of state for me). Overall the vehicle feels tighter in its handling than our 2008 C30 R Design. The...

    So, I have been spending my whole week to decide what type of coolant to use for my c30 2007! Everyone is saying something else (including manufacturers). The thing is that I know Zerex G48 is the most suggested one, but in Europe, it is not easy to find it - actually it is only available in 20L...

    New here and recently got a 2008 C30, I was wondering if anyone here has raised the suspension on their C30? I know it sounds dumb lmao but I’m curious to see how it looks and acts. Any photos would be great.

    So, I am not certain that the C30 forum is where I should ask this but it is a start. We have a 2009 C30 T5 manual transmission that we want to sell privately. It is our daughter's car and she is now living in the UK where we would like to purchase another C30 as a replacement for the one sold...

    When I read the following article by Travis Morgan I believe the entire office heard me yell "yes!" A C30 with AWD was something many Volvo enthusiasts thought was not possible without major surgery to a C30, until now. Have a read and be inspired. -Chris Back in 2006 Volvo released...
