Default timing belt replacement

Is there a write up how to replace the timing belt for an 2004 volvo v70. There are so many write ups for the 850, but none for the newer vehicles. The tensioner is different.
I have a friend who is a mechanic who is going to help me replace it but has never worked on a volvo.

This is about the best I can do now I really need to get a car at home to do the belt on and make a write up.

Default T Belt Replacement

Here is what I used when I did mine (2001), hopefully it will work for you. Issues I had were getting the crank pulley nut off and retorquing it. Off was easy for me as I have air impact tools. I fudged a system to retorque. You might research the "rope trick" to hold things during torque. I didn't trust this and didn't use it, so no endorsement from me, but have heard a lot of positive comments. This will be up to you.

I just tried to up load the PDF file I had, but it is too large. If you can figure how to contact me I'll send it, or if you choose to post your e-mail I'll send it direct. It is a 365 Mb size file. It would be nice to post, but unless they change the rules.........

Try uploading it to a photo site and post it from there.

None of the write up's or Volvo instructions on installing a timing belt mention anything about Torque specs for the crank pulley nut. Any reason for that?
I'd just reinstalled it with a impact wrench.

That's what I always do. There is a spec somewhere but you have to remove the starter and install a special tool to torque it properly.Or get the other special tool that bolts to the front of the pulley. The center nut spec is 180 NM.

Sorry I am just an old fart and not that internet savy nor do I wish to create yet one more account out there I will not use frequently.

Or hows about not taking the crank pulley off. The slight effort increase getting the belt passed the pulley is still MUCH better than battling getting the pulley off.

That's what I'm gonna do next week when I do my belt. If it turns out to be too tight a fit then I'll go to the trouble of removing the pulley.

Did the Timing belt, Tensioner & pulley along with the water pump last night.
Remarkably the car runs!
Took me 3 hours in all. The belt was not too bad for 103K but the tensioner's bearing was a bit rough when you spin it free hand. Threw on a new T'Stat too.
Realized when I took the wheel off that the car now needs a inner CV boot & brake pads.
The "to do" list continues to get longer!
