2010 Volvo C70 Problems

Convertible Top May Have Problems With Micro-Switches/Potentiometers

The convertible top may have problems with the micro-switches and potentiometers that help control the raising and lowering of the top.

Knocking Noise From The Front Suspension Going Over Bumps

Knocking noises going over bumps can be caused by worn sway bar end links. These end links have small ball joints that become loose and rattle. Replacement is the only fix.

Door Lock Assembly May Fail and Cause Locking/Unlocking Problems

Several issues occur with the door locks on the Volvo C70 and most are because of the door lock assembly. What happens is that one door will not lock while the other one does. In other cases you will lock the doors and then one of the doors will immediately unlock.

The problem is that the door lock assembly is defective and will need replacement. Replacement of this assembly on the C70 is very difficult and is not recommended by a novice. Getting the door and window aligned properly so that you don't get air or water leaks is very, very difficult.
