Tim’s Volvo Site


As I continue to fix and maintain my 2007 XC90 and 2005 V50, I will post “do-it-yourself” instructions here for fellow Volvo owners who like to tackle their own maintenance and repairs.

DISCLAIMER: This website is full of how-to articles that I have written while working on my own vehicles. I assume no liability for any procedure that you undertake, regardless of the outcome. If you are unsure of how to proceed, please consult a service manual or bring your vehicle to a qualified technician.
