If you have a 98-00 V70 and your radio reception has become weak or the AM is non-existent, unsnap the antenna clips in the middle each side rear glass where it meets the interior trim, clean them off with a wire brush, add some dylectic grease and snap them back together.
My AM had become so bad we would hardly hear it, 100% full of static, now it seems to back to normal operation and is fine once again http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
FM is better too.

Good tip, and that's dielectric grease.

Re: V70 owner's tip (JRL)

Good tip, thanks.

Any chance you'd have a similar tip for an S70?

You have an actual antenna, ours is integrated into our rear windows.

You should have better reception than us, I think. I'm not a radio technician though.

S70's get MUCH better reception than V70's

What's AM? (
)

A frequency where you'll hear nothing but static and garbage, no matter how good your antenna is !!!

But if you clean the posts at your rear window, you'll hear the static and garbage so much clearer!
