Just had timing belt, tensioner, and water pump done and will flush tranny next week. The guy that helped me said I should change my spark plugs and cabin filter. My v70 is turbo and wondering what spark plugs you folks are using or recommend. I have an old spark plug remover on my socket set, but do I need a special one or size for my v70? Also, is the cabin filter easy to replace? <br>

Re: Spark plugs and cabin filter for 98 turbo v70 (Mr Jroo)

Most people have found that OEM plugs and wires are the still the best option for our cars.<p>As for the cabin filter, the shortcut to doing this is removing the torx bolts on the passenger side of the plastic cowl under the hood (and peeling the weatherstrip back as well), disconnect the rubber drain tube that runs down the firewall, then slide the cowl out from under the windshield on that side. Carefully lift it up and -- voila! -- you will see the cabin filter. <p>Be sure to replace it with the charcoal retrofit: The part no. is 9488527.<p>Full write up, with pictures, here: <A HREF="http://www.volvospeed.com/pollenfliter.php" TARGET="_blank">http://www.volvospeed.com/pollenfliter.php</A>

Stick with Volvo stock plugs (about $32 per set of 5 at FCP Groton). The cabin filter is easy to replace. Just remove two screws from the black plastic molding at the bottom of the winsheild on the passenger side, lift up the molding, replace the filter and put the screws back in.
