I don't think that the Volvo dealer would be a very good move. The parts guys are usually pretty clueless unless they can pull it up on the computer or maybe Microfiche. The Volvo dealer here in Las Vegas sells anything that will sell... like Volvo watches, every additive that you can think of, Volvo pens, Volvo Toilet Paper!!!???? Volvo poker chips? <br>Hey, this is Las Vegas. <br>When the economy is going down the tubes, we start selling 'terlet' paper. <p>Talking about eyelids... When I ever have the extreme misfortune to HAVE to go to Volvo of Las Vegas... the parts counter guy's eyelids invariably close while I'm talking to him. <br>If it's not five years old or less, they run out of energy.
I guess it depends on the dealer. And I agree, I've had some bad experiences with Volvo parts departments. However, my local Volvo parts guy is very helpful. I just bought 4 caliper mounting bolts for my rear brakes -- and they had them in stock!! $1.73 each. Those bolts can be hard to find.<br>
