    Default DP-A reverse latch mechanism spring install.

    Noticed the smaller spring in the middle part of the latch was broken in half. Ive located new spring, my ? is that one the ends of the spring looks closed I believe thats the end that goes on the bar part. It looks like its going to be a pain to get that spring on the bar because of the limited room to work with or do u have to dissemble the latch to slide out the bar if it even comes out?? I attached pics of spring the pic of the latch is not my drive got off net so its for reference.

    Default Re: DP-A reverse latch mechanism spring install.

    With the drive tilted up its doable... i.e. partially disassemble the latch... remove big springs (carefully), undo transverse bolts.
    Carefully clean and lightly lube with waterproof grease. Replace the nuts (nyloks) as they are really "one time". CAREFULLY follow the procedure/diagram in the Volvo OEM Shop Manual.
