Hello, <p>I'm new to this site and need some help................<p>My 1989 740 GL is as solid as the day I got it but most of my interior plastic parts are broken or deteriorating. Does anyone know where I can get some quality replacement parts other than a junk yard. I live in SoCAL so junk yard cars have the same problem , lot's of sun and heat, that mine does. Any help would be appreciated. <p>Dirty Marty <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

I'm not positive that these will help or be the right price for ya but <A HREF="http://www.vlvworld.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vlvworld.com</A>, myswedishparts.com, and Erie Vovo (a volvo dismantler in western NY) are usually great.

Re: My plastic interior parts are crumbling........HELP (Dirty Marty)

Marty:<p>Some interior parts like map pockets and centre consoles are still available from Volvo. For the rest, you'll have to go used. I suggest eBay, since you can find parts from other areas of the country where the sun isn't quite so fierce. Also, Volvo World (www.vlvworld.com) has a lot of interior plastic available.<p>Parts of the country where vinyl doesn't get so much sun include the Northeast and Northwest, as well as the upper Midwest. <p>Dash caps are available from IPD (www.ipdusa.com) and dashes can be 100% restored to new condition by Just Dashes in Van Nuys (www.justdashes.com). Just Dashes also offers restoration of other vinyl interior parts, so they could also be a good resource for your other trim.<p>Whatever you do, use a protectant on your new parts, like ArmorAll or Vinylex. Some people don't like ArmorAll, but I've never had it cause a problem, and I started using it in 1974.

Speaking of "Just Dashes" those guys are awesome.<br>I had a classic Pontiac with very low miles about 10 years ago but the "padded" dash has crumbed.<br>I snipped a piec of the material from the bottom and Voila! in a month or so I has a PERFECT dash cover that matched the rest of the (100% perfect) original interior
