Re: 360 gl 1990 drivers side door outer handle removal

Hello, I can't remember the details, but you need to remove the interior door trim panel very carefully and then just keep dismantling the stuff in the door cavity. There is one screw holding each handle on, I think. I made some notes here. Hope that helps, Jon.C.

The odometer and trip just stopped working on test drive. Confirmed working on test drive, but suddenly they just stopped rotating? How hard is it to take the dash out and what could could be the cause? I have had this trouble and it's very hard to fix the internals of the speedometer so replacemen...

Re: Gear linkages? - FIXED :)

I had that trouble a couple of years ago. There are some details in the top part of this link: http://jbc.me.uk/jandec21.html The garage who did the work for me lowered the transmission so as not to cut the floor, but I have read that the latter approach is probably the quickest way of doing it.

Re: Volvo 360 GLT valuation

Re: VOC / V3M at The Motorist - 2nd April 2023

Hello Mr Helldriver. Did you ever go in the end. I remember you kindly offered to help get the blue 1.7 4-door from Hull about 10 years ago. Car still going strong.

Cheers, Jon.C.

Re: Sunroof

Hello, there is someone in the V3M facebook group called Curtis Roggers who probably does. Worth a look. I remember reading here that it's the same sunroof as the early VW Golf. Good luck, Jon.C.
