Had to apply a temporary fix for the oil filler neck, as it’s still leaking a bit (more like sweating). Used silicone sealant as a temporary measure. I will probably replace the filler neck somewhere next year.
The CLS has a common issue with the window not sealing properly against the door frame. When this happens, water and dirt/debris is able to get in the cabin. But it also introduces a lot of wind noise, which is not something which fits the luxury of this car.
To fix it, you need to undo 1 bolt in the door. I believe its a 10mm bolt which enables you to adjust the tilt of the window. Mine needed tilt more to allow for proper sealing again. I used a 1/4″ ratchet with a long extension. Its recommended to remove the trim to see what you are doing.
The bolt is accessible through the round rubber grommet in the door, but is hard to locate without removing the upper door trim.
This is a great, free fix!

As a lot of older Volvo’s, my S80 showed the cumbersome “Alarmservice needed” message. I decided to search for a fix instead of buying a new one, which costs about €280 – €300, which is a lot of money.
The process is very simple, slicing open the siren, disconnecting the battery pack and plugging in the new battery pack. The hard part is to remove the security bolt, I used a angle grinder and then tapping it out. I used a normal bolt when I mounted the siren again.

Driving 140km a couple times per week stresses the car more than you would think. Keeping it in tip top shape is important, even more so with an older car like our VW Lupo which was born in 1999 (1.4 16v, engine code AHW). Less than a year when the last service was done, I checked the spark plugs (as it was starting a bit rough). Look at the picture to understand why…
Please note that I needed to wait before the NGK Iridium sparkplugs (type: BKR6EIX-11 3764) were delivered, So I bent the old one, so that the gap was made smaller.
