Ah, cant easily get to it. How many pins on bottom, quite a lot, something like 7 or 8?

Love it. nothing like a bit dismantling therapy... I'm just about to start on the washing machine bearings...
Every block I try to read off that drive using forensic software (I lack proper forensic hardware) is just full of zeros.

Either something really funky is going on, or its badly buggered :D

Check the butterflies in the throttle close absolutely completely, and are clean and free.

Sometimes, mongrels adjust them in order to adjust the idle, because they don't understand anything newer than carbs.

Yes, you swap the top CD mechanism over, plug and play.  From memory, 2 screws hold mech in, and there are 2 fiddly (but not hard - just take your time) ribbons.

Coding is held on the forward board of the NCDC/NCDR, which you won't be touching, so you should have no coding/pairing issues.

Replacement section on its way.  :)

Sure, although swapping CD mech over is trivial, honest :)

Does anyone have any VIN number data as to what might be towards the last of the PFL Omegas?

Just that I was told that my MV6, having every bit of spec, was towards the last RHD off the line ??

Just be interested if this was the case but without the VIN data it’s a bit of guess work

Thanks in advance
Its not published, but PM your reg (assuming no private plates, else I need VIN), and I'll look up when.

The next year's model tends to be built around Aug/Sep time. The previous MY production halt depends on what changes need to be made to the line - if nothing, its usually at the start of the summer shutdown, for those plants that still have that.  If its a major facelift, it might be several weeks before the summer shutdown.

I'm still looking for both a gloss wood and silver Irmscher steering wheels with radio controls with no luck... Can't even find one to refurbish - the coloured part can be repainted but really need the leather bit to be as good as possible as it's harder and more expensive to put right.
I must get round to fitting my wood one that's been sat in the garage since the day it was rebuilt.

Can you fix it then ?
I struggle to find new reliable lasers for them. So I'm reluctant to pay out £30 on the offchance it would work.

I'd recommend buying a known good NCDC or NCDR, and swap over the CD mechanism. That's what I do now.

You did, titled "What a pillock". ::) ;D
LOL, couldn't find it for looking, only realised when somebody bumped it. Must be an age thing  ;D

Picked up what I thought was a wheel bearing noise on the way to Warrington yesterday (I must admit I felt it was my chickens coming home to roost after commenting on TB's Jaaaaaggg's penchant for eating them). So I ordered one up from Paul Rigby Volvo in Stourbridge who got it same day  :y

Started stripping the hub down this arvo and discovered that the useless chimps who did the timing belt had re-used the old wheel bearing stretch bolt which had now worked its way loose  >:(.

Retightened it as a temporary measure and scooted back to Paul Rigby. Explained my predicament, the parts guy did the refund and then got on the phone to order me just the bolt, couldn't get volvo UK as it was 1701 on a friday. "Never mind" he said, "you can take this one out of the wheel bearing kit, I'll order a new one before we send the kit back". Opened the box, cut the bag and gave it me. "How much?" I asked "Oh, you can keep that, we don't get many DIY'ers in these days, it was nice to see you".  Result!!  :y

Not having an Ovlov, please explain the connection? :-\ :-\ :-\
FWD, probably needed suspension bits out of the way for access.

Not many dealers like that now, so result :)

I keep my friendly Vauxhall parts man on my side for that very reason :y
