UPDATE, I AM OFF ON A SHORT HOLIDAY:

I am off for the entire bank holiday period, I am going home any minute now and not to return again until TUESDAY 3rd MAY.


Any orders already in progress will not be affected, and as our parts department is open on all days other than the bank holidays and weekends you can still call to place orders if you have order reference numbers from me already.


If not I can only apologise but I will be back as usual on May the 3rd.


Thank you for all your comments above, we all really do appreciate it, and in some respect helps us continue to do what we do. We really do always do our best to supply parts for the best prices and the highest level of service that we can, and its good to see all the feedback here from those who have used us reflecting this.


Right, catch you all when I am back, any problems with any orders in the mean time please call our parts department who will all be happy to help I am sure! (though they may be not as happy as me, as I will be off! :D )


All the best!


Simon :)

Rufe clear your pm's!
 
hi i have just purchased a parcel shelf/luggage cover for 850/v70 it is the type with a solid shelf and then a extendable luggage cover off that. this type uses a pair of fairly hefty mounting brackets that act as a base for the shelf to sit on. do you know/can you find out for me if these brackets are still available and if so how much?
the parts are in this pic and you can see the type of shelf.

*** VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE. PLEASE READ! ***

*** Change of Procedure for Mail Order Enquiries ***


Due to a combination of ongoing technical problems and a very large increase in the volume of enquiries we receive on a daily basis our email/webform is now being removed.


While proving very successful it is regrettable that it simply can not continue as it is, as many messages lately are not being replied for many days, some not at all.


This drop in our standards is simply not acceptable in my opinion, so we have decided to make a major change as to how we operate. We have now installed a second direct telephone in our department meaning we can now handle a larger volume of calls. This means if any one requires a quote from us we are now able to do it immediately over the phone, rather than everyone having to wait for a reply. I really do understand that many people liked our service and found it quite unique in the Volvo owners world, and it really is not my first choice to do this, but due to the above mentioned factors this is the only step I can currently take to improve our service.


We will still offer the best discounted prices we possibly can, I have set up our discount structure for online users some time ago and this will continue.


To ensure you get the best possible prices please quote discount code C3 when calling us. This is not a gimmick, this really does alter the prices by a large amount. If you call us and do not state this code we may not realise you are an online customer, so please mention this code when calling.


You really are not under any obligation to place any order when calling, we will offer you an order reference number to use in the future if you wish to simply think about the prices, and may be call us back at a later date if you so choose. If you have used us in the past please also mention this as we may be able to retrieve your details to save a little time.


So, please call us on either of our parts direct telephone numbers:

01792 790066
or 01792 784272 - Quoting discount code: C3

Lines are open Monday to Friday, 9:00am until 17:00pm (excluding bank holidays).


I hope you will all still continue to use our mail order service for all of your genuine Volvo parts and accessory requirements. Please keep in mind that we are doing this to try to improve our standards even further as we have grown too busy for what one person can manage. Now by opening up the phones for all online customer enquiries our whole parts team will be on hand to help, not just myself!

Simon - FRF Volvo Parts Department.


PS: The last few posts in this thread highlights the issue as I was off for roughly 1 week (3 days holiday, 9 days off) and my inbox here has completely filled in that time, I haven't even cleared my emails yet, let alone had chance to make space in my inbox here. I really am very sorry to everyone who I have not been able to reply to but I can only suggest calling us on the numbers above where we will help you out as best as we can! This is something that I have no other option to do, each message takes time to reply to and there are now hundreds outstanding, with no chance for me to work through them.

I saw this on posting by Simon on the td5 forum and thought it was usful so here it is.

I have to cover my own ass here so will say right at the start - "Neither myself or FRF Motors are going to be liable for any errors or ommissions in this info, or for any damage caused as result of wrong information. This information is taken directly from the Castrol Oil data sheet which all Volvo dealers use. All this information would be in your owners handbooks, so if in doubt allways refer to that."

Ok, as you may know, selecting the correct oil for your car can be a bit of a challenge at times, as there can be a lot of contradicting advice and info out there. Volvo Uk recommend using Castrol Oil and the following info is taken direct from the data sheet that Castrol supply every dealer with for selecting the correct oils to use in servicing.

In most cases there are two different oils listed. A STANDARD protection and an OPTIMUM protection. You are safe to use either, though obviously the optimum version will be the better of the two, so if you are living in adverse weather conditions, or use the car for track days, or generally do a lot of hard driving etc, then you should be looking at using the Optimum protection oil that is listed.

Some of the following oils look very similar in name and ratings etc so take care to get the correct oil.

Thanks a lot

Simon.
