Cotemar (Mark) has put in a section on changing the air filter (this thread) to the washable kind. In his message he says to email
him for the detailed how to. I did this and he was kind enough to send to me, it's has photos and is very specific. I would be happy to pass it on if you want to shoot me an email
with your email address, or Im sure Mark would too.
Were just getting our last "Authorized Volvo Service
" in order for the warranty, so we are going to save the airfilter (because they change the airfilter) and try Marks method for modifying it. Next service
we will be doing, we are paying about $700 for this service to both engines. Robbery!!
I would like to find a material over here that I can use without having to have a Fram filter sent from the US. The air is so clean up here in Cairns, with no industry and such little population, it's hard to imagine we need much for a filter really.
