Most problems solved

Posted Sep 23rd, 2014 at 19:48 by BrianH

Alex Smith of Al's Motors, Volvo Specialist has sorted.....

the..... exhaust, the gear-box, centre bearing, and rubber coupling, the speedo which now indicates 137,248k, the plastic cog is stripped on the old one at 552k, this will be corrected ASAP to 552k, the reversing lights, the power windows, the horizontal movement on the steering wheel (shear bolts loose bushes needed ,not available from Volvo).

Checked the front wheel bearings (need adjusting> I will do this). The rear near side rear wheel bearing I missed (must look at this. Wifes Polo failed MOT on this)

All for 472.08 plus VAT

YES! But I bought most bits, labour 12 hours at 35 per hour
