My friend's brother is emigrating down under and is getting rid of his luvly Volvo.
Here's a summary from Andy:

Hey dude, here is the list from best I know.

Boot hydraulics don't work so has to be propped open with piece of wood

Leaks oil a bit when engines hot, not sure where from I don't think it's terminal I just top up the oil. Had to top it up with about 2L in around 3 months

Headlights have stopped working just this week. I believe from research this is the cem and could be a tricky fix. Main beam and everything else works.

The exhaust is blowing

Paint work is scratched up from previous owner.

Drinks petrol!

In general the car is ace on the motorway i have done loads of miles with no problems.

It had the cambelt and alternator belt done and has decent continental tires.


Surely that's a right to sell a car like that.
He will be chuffed if it sells for £200 but will be happy with offers.
137k on the clock and MOT until the end of October. Currently near Stockport.

140 horse...my favourite flavour. I'd express an interest, but the headlight issue has me worried. I'm trying to get out of a money pit...
Although I don't see how it could be the CEM, that was the curse of the 400s surely? Particularly the 480.

I have no idea what CEM is and what it got to do with headlights. If you want I can PM you the owners email. I do think he realises that 200 is very optimistic and will take offers.

CEM is Central Electronic module.

 

I can't find the perfect a guide for the 850, on a V40 you can replace the relays in the CEM, but it is a solder job.

Sshhh... it's sleeping.

 

Currently waiting for me to amass the funds for all-new sills. It's still parked right in front of the living-room window for maximum guilt-trippage, and Mrs_Duke has forbidden me to even think about getting rid of it.

For under 200 sheets, fuck the CEMwhatever, just take a feed from the switch through a decent relay and a fused feed straight from the battery. Instant headlights without hassle.
