    Hi all, I've got a 2012 RHD V50. Yesterday I noticed the passenger floor was damp and further exploration revealed the carpet was completely soaked. A quick google showed that the common causes are leaking sunroof or clogged AC drainage hose. I don't have a sunroof and I've inspected the AC...

    Took car in for alignment and was told that they will not do it unless I replace the lower ball joint. The guy was hostile and annoying so once again, I figure it'd be best just to try to repair this myself... I'm in some Volvo groups and spoke with two folks that said it might not even be the...

    Hi All! I've got a V50 T5 that I'm trying to get on the road again. This car has been parked since the start of covid (March last year) and I'm trying to get it sorted now. I noticed that one of the fittings for the brake lines coming from the ABS pump had been stripped so I decided to fix it...

    I know this is a unicorn, but... I'm looking to buy a 2010 V50 T5 awd with the 6 speed manual transmission - specifically with the premium sound system (speaker in the middle of the dash), a sunroof and if possible, BLIS. I saw one came up for sale about a year ago on here, but at the time I...

    I assume it's something to cem before I begin because the problems started to happen after I changed the cabin filter (UK so on the passanger side) A few days ago I did a long drive about 400 mile round trip and everything was good until i almost got home. The radio turned off and on and the...

    Is this an abnormal amount of rust for an east coast vehicle. Ive been looking into methods to deal with the rust, replacing parts I can repair, and sanding/grinding and treating everything else. Any recommendations that don't involve trashing the vehicle?

    Ohhhh boy, this has been fun. This started yesterday on my 2006 V50 when I noticed an oil leak coming from the oil filter housing area. I checked the o-ring, it was in the right spot and not cut or slashed in any way. So, I decided to get a better look at the leak to be sure it was from that...

    Hey everyone I've got AC fluid leaking from the connections on my AC dryer (under the passenger side headlight) which makes me believe the O rings need replacing. I found a set of them online but it says it's for the S40 and V50 only. Are there any differences between the AC system of the C30...

    Hey guys, I have an 05 v50 T5 and it usually starts up first crank no problem when the engine is cold. Once it heats up or sits in the hot sun the motor will crank but the starter will disengage early and free-spin. It does eventually start after 5-10 attempts. Usually this happens after...

    Hi all Had a leaking windscreen (which I’ve heard is a common problem for V50’s) and didn’t realise until we had a big storm and found a puddle of water in the foot wells. Since then there has been no power to the ICM meaning no climate control and no audio system. Things I’ve checked or...

    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...

    Hi all, new to Swedespeed, but not new to cars and modifications 🙂. I am looking for some suggestions regarding my 2008 V50 D5. Within the last week I have noticed a large cloud of smoke from the exhausts when the engine comes onto positive boost pressure. But the smoke is ONLY produced after...

    So, like many of us here, the time has come to replace my rear hubs and bearings. Living in the northeast, every single bolt will have to be cut out because of the brilliant decision to use internal Torx heads. I have new hubs but not new mounting bolts. I know the Volvo part number is 999478...
