Question about 2006 Volvo V50 T5
When should I replace the timing belt?
Posted by Anonymous on
It depends on engine type. In my Volvo with 2.0D engine its 240kkm (150k miles) or 10 years.

I believe it's every 80k. Just do it if you don't know when it was done last , these are non-tolerence motors and you will do damage to the valves if you break the belt in motion.

The V70 naturally aspirated engine in 1998 is an interference engine, which means if your timing belt breaks, you will bend every intake valve in the engine, necessitating a valve job at the very least; around $5K. As soon as you buy the car, spend the $500 to replace the belt, the idler pulleys, the adjustment pulley, and the water pump. Change your thermostat at the same time.
Look at the motor mounts, they are likely broken, check your constant-velocity joints for play (you'll feel a 'wobble' on acceleration through a turn), and you can get aftermarket delrin bushings for the struts, as long as they're not leaking. Have your mechanic inspect and replace the headlamp sockets (they get burnt and cause rapid failure of headlight bulbs). Whenever you do brakes have the mechanic clean, inspect, and electrically test the ABS wheel sensors.
Other than that, a nice solid car.

What about it??
I wouldn't try it if you don't know how, (specially if this is what is known as an interference engine). Valve timing is *very* delicate and stray pistons love to chew them up!

I solved this on my 95 volvo 850 glt as follows:
pull the seatbelt pilar cover off from the door jamb. this runs vertically up the pilar between the front an back door (beside the front seats. Once opened loosen the belt by gently pulling the belt upward toward the roof. You'll have to do this sometimes in small increments. Once the seatbelt is pulled out all the way, spray small amount of lubricant into the joint where at the top of the belt spool. Also use a screw driver to push spool upward while pulling the belt. At first it's only going to release a little but eventually the lubricant will work its way into the seam at the top of the belt spool and loosen up the stuck inertia catch. Until it completely loosens you might have to remove the pilar cover again and work the seatbelt out (also use the screw driver technique described above) in order to use the seatbelt. When parking, I would relatch the seatbelt and pull the slack up around the back of the head rest. After a day or so it worked normally.
good luck and don't give up.
