source for Seat Cables '97 960 driver's side.

Discussion in 'Volvo 960' started by David Schierholz, Mar 6, 2008.

  1. I had the car in with the dealer (Manhattan Volvo) due to a check
    engine light and an inability to find a shop to trust in Bayonne, NJ.
    I was an aircraft mechanic, so I can work on stuff but really don't
    know my way around newer cars. I had them look at this and that, and
    they are fixing an emisions problem. Service writer said the parts
    all had to come from the factory (except the emisions valve). They
    called back and quoted a lot more than the car is worth for parts.
    And that is the first time I have ever seen a shop manager in a suit
    (too big).

    I looked on the web and I think the seat cables are something I can do
    myself. I also strongly guess that I will have to do them quick, as
    Manhattan Volvo will probably re-assemble the seat out of position.
    Any source on the net that people favor?

    Also need sunroof selector gates.

    It was a bit cryptic-

    The seat is electric and only slides on one side. The dealer said
    "cables. $600-. Have to order from the factory" (presumably in Sweden
    for a car tthat old). Since I don't have to adjust the seat (unless
    my wife wants to learn to drive) I put it on hold and then got to
    thinking.

    There are two cables under the seat that drive gears that drive the
    seat. I want those on hand before I pull the seat apart. Obviously
    not a junkyard part (whole seat would be), although I can go by
    Advance and see if they have anything. They have surprised me in the
    past.

    I suppose the question would be "What is the best source on the
    internet for Volvo factory parts?"
