Re: repair manuals (snowdragon3)
I went ahead and purchased one of the VADIS DVDs. It contains detailed instructions for most common repairs and parts replacements for many cars, not just the V70s. Purchase the most recent version available. (e.g., 2005F) VADIS is no longer used, but an online version VIDA is used, you can purchase a multiple day subscription, but it is fairly expensive. BTW there is no other manual offered for the '99+ model year cars.
The DVD was well worth the money I paid. Make sure you get the administrator password when you purchase.
