      ~12.7v when the engine is off is a fully charged battery. At idle, voltage should be ~13.5-14v. If he is seeing 13v EO I'd say either the reading is off(unlikely) or the battery is over charged.

      Not sure I like the location of that exhaust cut out. Seems awful close to the haldex and associated harnesses.
    14. Just another subframe/steering noise thread.

      I generally don't post threads like this as I am self sufficient in diagnosing and resolving NVH issues but this one has me frustrated.

      I'm just going to assume you didn't know Volvo uses haldex.....as does ford.

      The ford freestyle uses the same filter as the Gen 2. Different coupling though.

      Craftsmanship looks great. It's still stainless though. 5k and up is titanium territory...for a VW anyway.
