Hey I was just about to replace the ETS and Thermostat on my v70 GLT tomorrow, just wondering if anyone had any advice or knew of a walkthrough that may be hanging around. Couldn't find any thing from searching. Thanks all!

Re: ETS & Thermostat replacement (killer_wagon)

t-stat job will be easier if you have long torx socket. good luck.

Spray down those torx bolts with PB blaster for at least overnight...and use the long torx socket (make sure it fits snugly and perfectly in the star hole) for the one up against and under the fuel line. Other than that, get replacement bolts (the dealer has harder ones now for a couple of bucks each)...figure on buggering up at least one or both of them. Also, don't lean all of your weight on the thermostat housing- a friend of mine did that trying to get the bolt out and snapped the housing in two.
