need to replace the hood strut on my '06 ocean race, it seems like every website i see sells hood struts but says they only work if your hood is supported by two struts, which mine does not. Am i forced to go to the dealer for a new strut or does anyone have any suggestions, thanks in advance

Here is an exact-fit hood strut for your one-strut XC70...

Volvo Hood Lift Support (S60 V70 XC70) - Genuine Volvo 30674708OE

...in stock and ready to ship from www.fcpeuro.com/

Now back to your previous threads...

Did you fix the driver's window in the XC70?

Did you purchase a 1972 1800ES?

Did you ever get the build numbers for the HPT C70?

Do you now own an S60R?

Did you find a indie Volvo tech in Nashville.

Thanks.

George Dill

Thank you, ordered it tonight. To answer your other questions:
1) not yet, resetting the windows using the window switches didn't work so waiting on next service due and will let dealer dx and fix, living with it now
2) no, didn't want to take the chance of getting heart set on it and not having one accessible to see if i'd truly be comfortable in it
3) no, no one ever answered my question and I figured i would reach out to Volvo hq at some point for direction
4) no, purchased an alfa 164 instead, i had one before and know it's, well, it's an alfa, but i wanted something a little more exciting and interesting to look at (at least in my eyes)
5) no, i no longer need a mechanic in that area
thank you for your help on the hood strut!
