I put on my XC90 bolts last week - fixed the ping problem. <br>Since tomorrow I'm taking my car to the dealer, I figured I'll swap them for the original R bolts so the dealer doesn't change them accidentally without telling me. Well, when I went to take the XC90 off the axle, the rubber piece stayed in! For a second there I thought that I put on my regular bolts on when I originally put them in, but no - the other side was the same. The rubber piece on both sides is wedged in and there's no way to take it out. <p>I'm writing this because I remember reading somewhere that someone once checked his bolts after a visit from the dealer and found out that the dealer swapped his xc90 bolts for stock R bolts. Well - it could have been that the rubber pieces just stayed in. <p>...needless to say I left the xc90 bolts in...

Re: Interesting fact about XC90 bolts (tomedkaz)

Just take the bolt and stick it in the rubber piece half-way and pry it out? I did this when changing the spline sleeve for my angle gear. I'll probably have to do it again soon. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Or just tell them to leave them alone.

One of the issues tomorrow is that they're fixing noise in the front suspension, so the worst thing they can do is unscrew the bolts and put some locktie on it.... they wont even know the rubber pieces are in there.

First thing I would do is tell them you have the xc90 bolts in there..

Re: Interesting fact about XC90 bolts (S60R1)

If the dealer is taking parts off your car and replacing them back with stock - <br>a) it should be documented<br>b) they shouldn't do it<br>c) if they DO do it, they should consult you first.<p>That'd be like me taking my car to the dealer for some radiator work, and during the job, they take out my phMIC and put a stock IC setup back in... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I wouldn't worry about it too much.

They should be able to tell, but it doesn't hurt for you to let them know ahead of time. It's like going to the doctor for a cough, the more the doctor knows about you and your health history, the better his chances of curing you and curing you right the 1st time around <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>It's odd that someone had their xc90 bolts swapped for R bolts, but if you're that worried just let them know about it.
