Hello,

I'm new to this site and need some help................

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.

I'm not positive that these will help or be the right price for ya but http://www.vlvworld.com, 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:

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.

Parts of the country where vinyl doesn't get so much sun include the Northeast and Northwest, as well as the upper Midwest.

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.

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.
I had a classic Pontiac with very low miles about 10 years ago but the "padded" dash has crumbed.
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
