Well the cheapest Volvo C30 in the country might have only been $3,000 but it cost me well over $1,500 on parts. Not only were the parts expensive but days of labor went into getting everything right. The work paid off though, the turbocharged 5 cylinder engine was tamed with a set of new engine mounts, the turn signal doesn't randomly turn on after each bump, and the clunky suspension is once again buttery smooth. I love this quirky little car, but it's time for it to find a new home. I'm going to list it on AutoTempest then post the link here and in the comments tomorrow.

The car got triggered when you unhooked the head unit and stayed triggered until the battery died. The Karen car.

This car had two options for batteries. I believe the diesel versions outside the US came with a larger battery and shorter post. I went with the larger battery and bought the shorter post so it would fit. Larger battery generally has lasted longer.

Those felt washers for the battery work awesome. I live in Canada where we get a lot of corrosion due to salt on the roads in winter and I’ve never had any battery terminal corrosion ever since I started using them 8 years ago.

Volvo kiss of death: remove the radio without disconnecting the battery and get an SRS light that needs VIDA/DICE for a reset. That'll only cost $150 to $200 at the stealership.

And you had it in your hands! The coolant tank on these is known to break and leak at the seams. They have a low window washer sensor/warning but no low coolant sensor for the coolant tank. I'm rebuilding an 11 with a manual and I will be swapping in a new tank. Nice work all around. I'll be checking those motor mounts now. Thanks for the walkthrough.

It’s not the wrong size battery, it’s just the smaller cheaper size. These cars freak out when the voltage drops or is interrupted but the smaller battery should be fine

Change the coolant expansion tank. They are a known failure point on the p1 cars. There’s no coolant level sensor so it will leak and by the time you figure out what’s happened it’s probably too late. I understand you are selling it but it’s a $25 part on eBay and a five minute job.

John, if you'll just put one of those little supermagnets on the shaft of your screwdriver, you won't lose any of those screws if they are metallic. Saved me losing a lot of little screws into places I couldn't get or find.
