Product Description


When Volvo was developing their "short six" 3.2i and 3.0 T6 engines for transverse installation in engine bays, the accessory belt drive was relocated from the front (left) end of the engine to the rear (right) end, above the transmission. Putting belt-driven accessories like the water pump and A/C compressor in this free space above the transmission makes the six-cylinder SI6 even more compact than the old five-cylinder.

Both the primary accessories and the alternator are driven by this "R.E.A.D." (Rear Engine Accessory Drive) via one-way, freewheeling clutches in the pulleys, allowing the belts and accessories to gradually spin down when RPMs drop off. The extra second or two the accessories spend coasting down allows them to extract a little more energy from their own inertia, saving a bit of fuel while also subjecting the belts to gentler shock loads.

If you're above 100k miles and want to do scheduled service on all of these wear items, if you're hearing squeaks or chirps or rattles from the accessory belt area, or if you just want some peace of mind, this Accessory Drive Kit Builder will let you replace as much or as little of the engine-driven accessories as you wish.

We recommend the belt, tensioners, and idlers at a minimum, but if you've got continued grinding or chirping noises you can't identify (or if your car's at very high mileage), we suggest doing the water pump and pump pulley decoupler "while you're in there."

Additional Technical Information

This kit fits early SI6 "short six" cars, with belt-driven power steering pumps and with spring-dampened water pump pulleys. If you can't determine which your car is equipped with, check the fitment notes below to find out based on chassis break.

On these early SI6 cars, the water pump pulley isn't attached directly to the pump, but has an axial spring/coupler assembly used to reduce shock loads on the pump and belt. If you're getting an OEM pump (which does not come with a spring/coupler included), you should also replace the spring-loaded coupling.

Potential Product Fitment Issues

Fits P3 chassis models for: 
- S80 6 cyl models chassis up to # 134000
- V70 6 cyl models chasiss up to # 167000
- XC60 6 cyl models chassis up to # 134999
- XC70 6 cyl models chassis up to # 94000

Verify prior to ordering. Your chassis number can be found as the last six digits of your VIN. 
If your car falls after one of the chassis breaks listed above, use this kit instead.
