    I am looking for a roof rack that fits a volvo 740. I have measured the
    roof of the car and it is 51" between the rain gutters. I have found some
    deasent 48" roof racks but I am not sure if the legs can be adjusted to
    compensate for the 3" that is missing. What size roof rack do you have? If
    you have one for sale I m interested if the price is right. Thanks so much
    for help.

    depending on where you are, you might be able to use the roof rack from my
    '89 240... I'm in Atlanta....

    The electric mirror on my 1988 volvo 240 does not work. I can hear it
    trying to move when i press the button (a sort of click , click) .

    How do i pull it apart to see what is wrong with it. Ive taken it off the
    car but there is no obvoius way to take it apart

  4. Not familiar with the one in the 240, but usually access to the insides
    requires unfastening the mirror glass. It is usually held with a soft
    adhesive that has to be cut, and a wire is about all that will get in there.
    I don't think they were made to be serviced.

    On the bottom side of the mirror is a small oval hole. You need to
    stick a small screwdriver through that hole and access a 2.5" dia.
    plastic ring on the back side of the glass. Turn this ring (about .5"
    on the circumference) and then the mirror glass will come off. It's
    obvious once you see it. The rest of the mirror is simple to
    disassemble. However you probably have a broken plastic piece, and will
    have to buy a whole motor assembly to fix it.
