Volvo S80 2.4T Dirty vs New Airfilter

Replaced the air filter. This is what a dirty airfilter looks like.

Change it on time, so your car keeps performing at peak efficiency!

Volvo S80 2.4T Changing the Interior Combo filter

Needed to change the interior / combofilter and was suprised by this malformed unit.

Looks like someone didnt do their job properly…Shameful really.

Easy DIY job, which shouldn’t take more than half an hour.

Volvo S80 2.4T Denso Injector Service

Decided to clean and service the stock Denso injectors. Rubber rings get hard and brittle over time and tend to leak. Also the filter baskets might be contaminated over time, especially if the fuel filter is not part of your regular service intervals (which mine S80 lacked…).

I bought this kit of Aliexpress and the quality looks very nice. It contains all the items needed, including a special tool for removing/mounting the filter baskets.

The pictures will speak for themselves (it was needed!).
