    240 Key Woes

    A friend-of-a-friend did some body work on my 240. It included changing the trunk lid. Along the way he lost the key I gave him and he also didn’t re-key the trunk lid for my existing keys. Now I’ve got 2 questions… 1. Where can I get a new key for my 240? I’m living dangerously by using just a...

    Anyone flock the dash in their 240?

    I?m getting tired of my carpet dash cover, so I?m thinking of repairing the cracks in the dash and flocking it. I feel like this is a look I usually see embraced in the JDM scene, but less in the land of the brick. Anyone here done it? Got pics of the results?

    240 Removing a trashed rear spring retaining plate

    This bolt/plate has met an untimely demise in my 1991 244. The bolt just spins freely in the plate, and the nut is seized to the bolt. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s felt this pain. Also seems like a tough place to fit an angle grinder. Regardless, I’ve got a replacement one and I’m going...

    240 Rear Differential Whine

    I?ve got a ?91 244 that has a steady whine from the rear end that seems to increase as speed increases. I asked the go-to old Volvo mechanic in this neck of the woods and he was fairly certain it?s the rear diff. He also said he doesn?t often see issues with the rear diff on 240s, so I?m...
