Unfortunately, my parents old 94L 850 T5 has developed a leak from the ABS pump, which it is presumed needs replacing. Due to the age and value of the car, I do not think it is worth fitting a new pump even at main dealer "trade" prices- about 650 plus VAT for the part.
I have been unable to source the correct part from the breakers I have tried- does anyone know where I might get hold of one? I am also considering fitting a reconditioned one- where can I find one of these?
The Volvo part number is: 30639115 I believe, and I have found the following Volvo number on the pump- 9140933.
Finding a part has been particularly difficult, as I believe the unit I require was only on the '94 year cars.
If it were my car, I would be inclined to try to sell it as it is. The leak is only minor (if a brake fluid leak ever can be). This brings me to ask what would be the best means of disposal. If I were to take it to a car auction, would I have to declare the fault, or would it simply go in the sale as sold as seen? Alternatively, would I get more for it on Ebay- it has had a fair amount of recent work, has good p zero tyres, bilstein sport dampers and a genuine 80k miles on the clock?
I am not exactly sure what the first number beginning with 3 refers to. The parts department at the local Volvo dealership gave it to me. I believe it may be the part number for the whole unit. The number beginning 9 is the number I found on the actual pump unit.
Vauxhall has announced that its new city car will be called the Viva, reviving a much-loved badge. We look at ten classic car comebacks and wonder if the fans got what they wanted, or if they’d have been better off leaving the badge in the bottom drawer.
