I would use WD40.
It is the world's most underestimated wonder product.
Based on fish oil.
A good coating in any connectors will keep them happy for a respectable time indeed...

For what its worth, my rear wiper is also blessed with a mind of its own. I have to 'time' shutting it off so it parks neatly out of my vision.

Thanks for that, but there is oil actually leaking from the underside of the turbo on the V70, and oil in the intake from there to the intercooler.

Hi.
I have something similar with '01 V70.
I believe it is engine mounts.
The top one is visibly loose, have not investigated the others yet..

Both are T5's - 2.3 5 cylinder 247HP.
Both need their turbos rebuilt as they are getting oil into the air intake.
I have seen parts advertised,...

No - not yet.
I guess it is would be hard to answer without knowing details of the cable concerned, but I just wondered if all OBDII/USB cables were wired the same.

Something is definitely wrong - the brakes on these vehicles are usually magnificent.
There should be a one-way valve in the vacuum line - perhaps that is faulty.?

Regardless of whether it does or does not - the fact is - such a problem can go away by itself - even if for a short while.

To me that indicates that a permanent failure has not occurred.

The SRS (safety restraint system) warning can be triggered when working within the dashboard area, or the drivers seatbelt.

Yes.
Apparently there are 3 types of booster - so first - be sure you have the correct one.
It seems to be about the number of electrical attachments, so check the layout of those carefully....

Just a thought for you all.
My S60 is right hand drive. This means the booster is on the right side - so it is not able to be removed without first lowering the engine/transmission a few inches.
