I tried silicone didn't work for me. How did you do it?

I tried joining them back together with it but just torn it when putting back together

A lot of agg and hassle I let the silicone dry off a bit so it was like blu tack but still wet enough to mould, made up a new adjuster that way, then siliconed further with the silcone adjuster in its place it takes a lot of patience and in my case desperation lol. Because it was the only thing stopping me get my 12 month ticket.

Email him to see if he has any
I bought a couple as one of mine had snapped; the plastic has a bit of flex in it which should help it live a bit longer!

Default Newbie. Please help!!

Hello everyone.

I dont know if I am using this correct as I am not just a newbie to Volvos. But a newbie to forums in general.

I would like some help if its not to trouble:

I have just bought a Volvo v40 D2 se 2013.

I am looking online and I can see that it should have satellite navigation. But there is no print on the button where it is suppose to be, the button clicks but nothing.

Further more there is no camera on the screen When it reverses and no beeping noise when reversing.

Could someone please help with this. Am I right in thinking that this should be fitted as standard? Is there something I need to do?

You need to post in the relevant forum for your model year. This one deals with the classic S/V40 up to 2004.
