Default Broken crankshaft position sensor mount 2017-21 bump

Ok so teaching myself about cars has been a long stressful process especially with limited funds. So when my daily 89 244 just randomly stopped getting spark right after i get fired (literally i came out to leave my former job and she wouldnt start) i needed to work my other job and fix the car. Seeing i didnt have the time i asked my neighbor who is a mechanic to fix it. Well long story short he broke the mount off. I am trying to figure out what part to buy so i can get Susan up and running again. So ive fallen back to the TB community any help would be greatly appreciated considering i dont wanna have to sell my 244. Thanks

Volvo Part # 3507510

Pretty pricey for what it is, but can be worth it in a jam.
May be able to score one up secondhand in the 'for sale' section, or hit up Tasca(lists this part as discontinued) or eeuroparts and the like and see what you're willing to spend.

You'll probably find others with revolution web setups like http://www.myswedishparts.com/oe-volvo/3507510 but they're pretty hit or miss.

Transmission is going to have to be removed to replace it, just to prepare you for that...

Replacing your DD because you need to remove and replace the transmission is not logical.

It's not that hard, maybe you can get the neighbor that broke it to help...

Its not logical but at the same time a moving vehicle gets me a 2nd job that is desperately needed. And considering when i get off from my first job its dark monday-saturday means i only have one day to figure out how to and drop the trans this from a guy who is learning as he goes. Whelp my jack and stands just made their way back home so i guess its time to turn a wrench and bust some knuckles

If I remember correctly you can access this by just pulling the engine a few inches forward, no need to remove engine or tranny.

Thanks for your input guys. I was able to rig up a piece of belt strap to hold the mount at the proper running distance, then jb weld the mount back together. Started her up a few times to make sure everything was right. Ill let it set till tomorrow evening then its saving for the T+/Manual swap

Bad idea. Will hold for some time, but really do get a used one and have it ready when this goes again.


If it's going to make you feel any better, I broke one of those myself. Lift the car, pull the tranny, replace the damn stupid thing, put the tranny back on, and you're back in business.

I can look around my piles of crap this evening and send you one for free-fitty. My car doesn't use that crank sensor anymore, and I've (ahem) gone through a couple of junkyard donor motors, so I should (in theory) have a few of these laying around somewhere.

There Goes My Hero free.99 sounds amazing compared to the dealer price of $80

Post in wanted for a bracket, someone has a spare one. You will have to pull the trans back an inch or so to get the bolts in/out of the bracket.

I have one sitting in my toolbox right now if you really need one. Time to learn to drop a trans. I can do it in about an hour or maybe less depending on how things go. Zip zip!!

Sorry, I just looked around the basement for about 40 minutes. I have all SORTS of useless stuff, but I didn't lay eyes upon any crank sensor brackets.

Looks like you can still get them new from Skandix:

That said, I may have a spare for you.

Been there done that on my '90 245 years ago. The hardest part was getting it in the shop with it not running.

Don't ever let your neighbor touch that car again. That sensor is easy to replace and he must be very ham fisted to have broken it. That part is still available new from Volvo. You will have to order it and wait until it comes in from Sweden.

Also if you are new to cars. Get a Haynes manual or even better a Bentley manual to help you work on the car. Read the books completely.
