  1. Just a heads up, I recently called FRF for a drivers convex mirror glass for my 2006 V70 as it'd caught the dreaded volvo plague of the glass debonding from the backing plate, and when I checked the passenger side I found that to be substantially the same way too. So.. genuine volvo glass is £85, £68 something with discount plus post. Which has gone up by £20 since the last time I bought one. So after a bit of searching through cheap fakes I came across these on eBay, they've arrived this morning and are, from the best I can tell, the exact same product from the same UK factory just without the volvo branding, in fact you can see where the volvo name has been removed on a tooling slide or similar. Only £14 each with free postage. A massive saving of over £100 on the discounted price for a pair, nothing against FRF as they're great, but why volvo think it's ok to slap a £70+ profit on them I don't know. Remember these guys selling at £14 are making a profit too. Item number 221870604269 and 221882029065. Couldn't work out how to add a proper link but I think they work. Seller is called 4a.parts and the exact price is £13.99. Hope this saves some folks a fortune..
  2. Genuine unused drivers side mirror glass for V70 S60 2004-8. £35 posted.
  3. Genuine C70 crystal indicator unit, complete and undamaged. About a year old, used but good. Upgrade for phase one V70/S70. £40 plus post, or free collection from Derby
  4. I've decided to let go of my set of 18" genuine BBS Nebulas. Bought them a year ago after hunting for over a year for a good set to have refurbished, and all they've done is sit in the garage (in the warm and dry). No tyres, and in need of a cosmetic refurb. Minor kerbing but the main issue is flaking paint around the edges and on the barrels, a trip to TWS the wheel specialist or similar will make them better than new and this was my plan, but I need the money for other things now so they've got to go. Collection preferred from Derbyshire, but PM me if you're interested. £350
  5. Complete and ready to go Superflex top engine mount for petrol p2 cars, V70/S60. This was a new original style round mount, which I've fitted the latest Superflex 'anti vibration' purple bushing into. Ready to bolt on, assembled with the supplied grease. Now surplus, this is a spare. Really nice clean condition. The round mounts are now obsolete from Volvo and these bushings will only fit round mounts. £45 plus post or free collection
  6. £200
  7. £250 for quick sale
  8. Just beat my current renewal from Esure by £266 by going with greenlight for the 2.4T5. Free mods aswell, just declare them. Brilliant.
  9. Got one, thanks Tim
  10. Anyone got a decent condition D5 oil cooler from a P2? Not sure weather to buy new or not, recommendation from Tim as an upgrade for the 2.4T5..so I'm doing it. Alex
  11. Phase one V70 R 2wd drivers side wishbone, genuine Volvo stamped part. Fitted to the car for 6 months. Changed by accident. Not something I'd normally offer on here, but my local garage (and myself) made a cock up and replaced both when I only needed the passenger side. D'oh. Will definitely be of use to someone I imagine. £30 free collection or plus post. Feel free to mock/laugh at my misfortune etc..
  12. 2006 S60 steering wheel, standard black leather. Unmarked condition from a 56 reg car with 43k miles. Stereo buttons and blank buttons fitted, although the blanks are a straight swap for cruise buttons as the wiring/plug is fitted to the spring plate as standard. I only bought it for the airbag. £20.00 plus post. May possibly have a perfect condition 2006 S60 sport wheel up for grabs soon as I've ended up with two. It'll have phone/nav controls with silver trim buttons. Let me know if you're interested.
  13. Hi chaps, I'm swapping to XC90 336mm fronts and XC90 rear brakes within the month. So my existing 320mm setup will be up for grabs (I'll throw in the standard rear callipers too if the buyer wants them). This is for the callipers and carriers as removed, the discs have minimal life left and will go for scrap. Removed from a 2.4T5 with 79k on the clock, very good condition. Will be available in around 4 weeks. £150 posted, or welcome to collect as they're rather heavy!
  14. Not sure. Sure the 316/320 callipers are the same.
  15. Yep! Tim did mine last week. Same hoses, just need standard XC90 discs and callipers..which are all the same. 302 vented i think.
  16. Pair of phase one V70/S70/C70 headlamp wiper motors, removed from a 2004 C70, complete with both plugs. Seals are all good. Working condition, newest possible secondhand parts. Might fit 850s I'm not sure. £20 plus post
  17. No, just drilling out the hub holes to 14mm. But unfortunately sold now.
  18. Right, absolutely ridiculous problem.. Got back into the car at the petrol station and the key would only insert into position one. Positions two and three are mechanically locked out and the key will not budge more than the first position. So, car has been recovered to my driveway by dragging it on and off the recovery truck (car was stuck in park) which seemed really bad. Anyway, I've tried grease, spray lube to no avail. Obviously there has been a mechanical failure with the tumblers or similar. Has anyone ever had this and sorted it out? Terrible timing.
  19. Pair of mint condition 2006-8 S60, 2008-12 XC90 facelift sport buttons with the silver trim. Straight swap into all steering wheels with these buttons from earlier cars, so all P2 S60, and V70R steering wheels aswell. Nice easy upgrade. Standard controls with cruise, no phone. £35 posted
  20. Hi chaps, Got a couple more bits up for grabs. Mint condition XC90 4 spoke steering wheel in black leather, no airbag or buttons, but the horn/internals are there. Completely mint condition from a 2011 car, as new. £20 2006 S60 airbag, black 3 spoke. Fits all S60s and some XC90s. Mint £15.00 Plus postage or free collection.
  21. Has anyone had their steering wheel re trimmed on here? I've acquired a knackered 2008 S60 sport wheel, but Royal steering wheels have refused to do it because 'It's too complicated', fair enough. Just wondering if anyone on here knows any other companies that are good. (or has a wheel that isn't knackered) lol
