Over the last few weeks my (wife's) XC90 has been accumulating a few issues that had me feeling like the poor thing was dying on us....

Rear wiper motor has gone from intermittent to pretty much dead
Headlights have gone almost opaque (I polished them 18 months ago...)
DVD player died
turn signals working intermittently (turn stalk issue)
Engine mounts have given up
One of the drive axles needs replacing
Nivomats have called it a day

As much as I have enjoyed this car for the last seven years and 100k KMs I was starting to wonder if it was time to trade in 'Sven'.

But after going through a bunch of posts on here today I find myself re-motivated to get Sven back up to snuff + do a few of the great mods that folks have invested time and energy into writing up on the forums.

I was at the IPD event earlier this year in Portland and was blown away by how active and vibrant the Volvo community has become.

So to all of you I say thank you and well done!

cheers,

I bought an 04 xc90 that needed a lot of work in April, and now it drives like new. These forums are such a great tool, there is a wealth of information spread out across the Internet. Between alldata, youtube, forums and other articles, it's actually been a breeze. I don't even know how much work I've done lol.. Every weekend I tackle another project. And it all comes together.
