Re: Volvo TGB11 Drivebelt Change

I though the tensioner is the top mounting screw of the alternator, which is screwed through a sliding bracket. Having loosened that screw, and the bottom one, I was able to tilt the alternator inwards, but it was not enough to get the belts on. And even if I would have gotten them on, it all looks ...

Volvo TGB11 Drivebelt Change

Ok, Both of my drivebelts disintegrated after I made a hard stop for a red light. Grinding sound, screeching sound, instant hot temp, and white smoke. I thought I had the correct gates belts, and I still think I have, but when looking for directions on www.c303.de for service manuals, I could not fi...

Re: Front axle not engaged?

It should have nothing to do with the front axle engagement. There is a brake sensor that needs to be reset. I had to deal with that after I bled the brakes to exchange the axle boots. Forgot exactly where it is located, but there are good diagrams on www.c303.de. It will extinguish the brakes light.

PCV

Hello,

The B30A does not come with a PCV in the vent pipe between the camshaft case and the air filter case. Would it be advisable to add one in line, and if so, which one?

Thanks,

Marcus

Exhaust system

Hello, I want to update my exhaust mufflers and pipes. Does anyone know if there are comparable parts here in the US that work? Had a muffler shop look at mine and he mumbled something about generic VW mufflers and that it doesn't matter so much if it is the exact and original Volvo mufflers and pip...

Re: Front axle not engaged?

Thank you all for your responses, here and via PM. The issue was that the VTG needed adjustment, as the nuts that help the membrane move the pushrod were not tightened after all those years. Lucky, that was a cheap fix.

Re: Front axle not engaged?

Thank you Ian. The issue is, that it will not engage in 4 wheel with the front axle. I thought that 4 wheel is the fail safe default, yet it is not powering the front wheels when 4 wheel is turned on.

Front axle not engaged?

I am not sure if my front wheel drive is working. Although the light is on when I push the button, and the steering feels heavier (hard to say), the rear wheels are spinning faster than the front wheels. The question is: Do the front and rear axles rotate at a different speed in all wheel? It might ...

Re: Boots

Hello, If the oil leaks from the area in front of your wheel carrier where the boot is, its the boot. There is no additional seal. The boot has somewhat of a seal, a metal lip. Once you tap it into it's place, the metal will expand and seal everything of. I am not a mechanic, but got it done without...
