Well, you've probably noticed by now that things look a little different around here. You are a keen observer!

The whole site is new and that includes all of the software that drives this forum. With probably over 10,000 settings and hundreds of back-end programs trying to talk to one another, there are bound to be a few glitches that we haven't discovered yet. So, if you happen to stumble upon anything that just doesn't seem right, give us a shout and we'll try to sort it out.

Thanks for using the VCOA Forum and enjoy the new look!

Thank you Klausc! The clutch was replaced in September 2010 at 89,900 miles because the hydraulic actuator was leaking. (I am avoiding the S-word for the hydraulic cylinder.) The current mileage is about 99K.

About the paint chips, your reminder is timely. I need parts for a larger job and can pick up some touchup paint. There are still no dents.

Keep on rolling.

I too drive a 1998 V70 though mine is a T5. I have recently retired and work on my Volvos as much as I can. Please let me know when you want to sell. If you are near the Silver Spring area lets share experiences. Good Luck with the next vehicle.

Silver Spring? I live in Gaithersburg. Do you have an automatic or a manual? Why do I think that some of the turbo models only used the automatic transmission?

A couple years ago I bought a replacement rubber cover for the clutch pedal. The parts guy said it was the first one of that part that Martens had sold. I'm sure the automatic transmissions are all super, but I special-ordered the car with stick shift, traction control, no sunroof.
