2005 XC90 V8, IPD sways and endlinks, currently shod with Pirelli Scorpion Verde
I've noticed that the region of the region of the front fender immediately above the wheel arches becomes incredibly hot (almost untouchable sometimes) on our silver XC90 V8 after about half an hour or so of city driving. This happens under normal driving conditions (i.e. not driving like Fangio). I assume this is due to large rotors having to stop 5000LB of vehicle + passengers.<p>My concern is that the excessive heat may eventually cause failure of rubber brake hoses and or electronic components that might be in the engine compartment close to the front wheel wells. <p>Anyone else notice this ?
