It like it turns on the heater
Probably the suspension, and it happens randomly, not with every bump but frequently enough to be annoying, also the front end it's super bouncy, I don't know if that's just a Volvo thing or not.
Just trying to find the replacement location.
I have replaced my front strut assemblies; new struts, springs, bearing carriers and bearings. The bearing carrier has an identification peg. Can anyone tell me in which direction that peg should point please? There were no instructions with the new part and "the book" says "be careful to replace it with the alignment peg positioned as it was when you dismantled it". I am not sure that the old one was right before I dismantled it. Steering is now weird, it does not want to self-centre at slow speed. Thank you.

whe using the kep fob and locking the car it will lock but does not make a noise such as a horn blowing to signify to me it is locked
On idle, slow move or stopped at a stop light, the Air Conditioned gets warmer or no cold air and my setting was the Lo settings.
The AC works again after I am out of traffic. My mechanic has ruled out the compressor clutch. They hooked a meter up to it and found it does not get power when the ac stops working. To me it seems like something is getting too hot and turns off the ac. My mechanic is stumped. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I had a full front end replacement done 4 years ago. Lifetime warranty Monroe shocks\struts and other for what that's worth. I regularly rotate tires but seem to need all 4 replaced almost annually. What is my problem?
Just like to know if I need to tune after replacement and if yes, can I drive the car to the garage to do these.
