  1. There is a bung on the bottom so 1/2 inch ratchet works but messy
  2. I am looking for locking fuel caps for a 2004 Volvo. Does anyone have a source and a part number?
  3. I put them on my 04 Volvo steering axel and I am very pleased. improved the handling and road feel.
  4. This seemed to make a big difference for me
  5. Mine also was like herding cats. Each thing that I have done has helped. previous owner (10 ponies) put on a very good steering stablizer Proper grease job helped, new shocks, new tires made a big difference and the latest was the valves on the front air bags. This truck finally steers like it should
  6. Thanks to all. A little lube and all is good
  7. thank you looks like something we should have
  8. This may be the case if I pull on it any harder. So far it just seems stuck. I suspect that if it had the broken end then the handle would be free to move. I am trying to avoid taking the door apart. I will try the lube first then take the door panel off.
  9. Thanks I will give that a try in the morning. It does feel like it is sticking.. I will try some silicone spray and see if that helps.
  10. My 04 Volvo has a passenger door issue. I cannot open it from the outside. It works fine from the inside and the locks seem to work as they should with the remote and manually.. The door handle has tuck in the past but as soon as I opened it from the inside it returned to near normal. It has always seemed a bit stiff but worked. Looking for ideas thanks
  11. Yes..... I bought it in Phoenix and the next day I drove it back to Canada. 1800 miles. First time driving a HDT and first time importing a vehicle into Canada. I didn't have the air endorsement yet and I knew that could have been an issue in Alberta. That was 8 years ago and many air leaks and minor repairs.
  12. Still waiting for DollyTrolley book of adventures!!!!!.
  13. What style of fuel cap do most of these trucks use? I just acquired some locking fuel caps that are a bayonet mount. They say Volvo on them so I thought they would fit. My truck [2004] has threaded fuel caps that are a little smaller than the bayonet mount. Just doing a little post purchase research that I should have done before I re purchase.
