Default ETM - Latest ETM & Volvo UK Info + Pricing/Contactless

The ETM has failed on one of my C70's.

In desperation I will be going to the old MRG Volvo site in Chippenham to get a new one fitted.

I was advised that Volvo UK no longer pay the labour the for this this work and that this good will gesture was terminated in 2006


Replacement ETM

The above is costing me 234


This will vary from dealer to dealer depending on what their rates are but allow for 2 hours labour time.

In my case this will be 200 bringing my payable total for an ETM to 434! Not nice for something that could only last a very short time.


XEMODEX has been mentioned in another thread and I am considering this for the failed ETM which I will be keeping upon removal.

Also there are a number of contact-less sensors advertised on Ebay for around 75-80. Does anyone have any experiences with these?

My V70 is is the same situation (though not completely failed yet), so I will be following this thread closely.
Trying to work out the best option.
What kind of warranty do you get from the dealers, if any?
