I'm looking for ANY info or link on the correct procedure"atleast where the cam an crank marks line up" for replacing a timing belt on a
'00 S-80 dohc. w/autoadj.
I have a boss who takes on anything. Then pass'es it off on me :liebe011:
I havent seen this car yet , he called an told"warned" me about it about 20 minutes ago, so after calling all of my resources for a manual,"which failed" i'm here
I have done several timing belts on almost every make an model, but i believe this will be my 1st 2.9 dohc volvo.

Not sure about the 2.9, but on the 2.8TT (most probably the same) you have to be REALLY careful taking the timing cover off, there is a plastic coolant fitting that goes through the cover and is easy to break (it's also a pain to get the hose unplugged form the fitting), the cover has to be forced far outwards to get it out. (you may have to lift the ECU cover lid off, and maybe the whole cover/box thing, and some assorted other hoses and whatnot.)

The mark to line up the crank is visible from the top, just lines up with a line, and there is marks on the coil cover that the cam gears line up with.

tensioner bit (hard to explain) that moves is meant to line up beween the two stationary bits, than turn it over by hand and readjust, then turn it over and make sure it still lines up.


then putting the timing cover back on is a pain again, as you need to line up the tabs at the bottom aswell as not breaking the plastic coolant fitting.


hope this helps, was a bit rushed typing it.

Check out this link: http://www.babcox.com/editorial/ic/ic60326.htm It's not exactly for the S80, but the procedure looks like it's almost identical.

I notice the site suggested the belt be changed at 60,000 miles. The S80 owners manual recommends at 105,000 scheduled maintenance. What do you all suggest? Has anyone experienced a break prior to the scheduled maintenance?

:blush: I have the same vehicle as you with 92,000 miles...I purchased last year
with 82,00 miles and do not know if the belt has ever been changed...Have taken
a extensive close look at the belt and see no signs of wear and agree with you on the Service Manual stating change due at 105,000..This tells me that Volvo is certain
it should last at least to that mileage., although who really knows....My extended
warranty which I purchased goes out at 106,000 miles or August next year....
I'am going to hold off replacing mine until at that mileage or next year, which ever comes first...If it breaks prior to then, I'll have the warranty to back me up....

Guess its an individual call...Good Luck

I'm with you, I'm warranted until 100,000 miles and will change it then. I'd better check my warranty- certified preowned. Don't like to see recomendations different than the scheduled maintenance.

Thanks for the reply...
