I am looking at buying a 145 wagon, however it needs work. I know for sure it needs new brakes and a new fuel tank, and I'm sure there is plenty more it will need but my question is, where do you find parts for these? junkyard? swap meets? online? I would prefer close to if not new parts, after market is fine too I just don't know what will fit on this car, or do I swap hubs and what not with a different car that has aftermarket support?? also what about the fuel tank? do I just fit a fuel cell or is there one made for this car out there (not on eBay or junkyard but actual new parts being made for it)

I am okay with doing fabrication work if I have to but I'm just curious as to if I have to or not cause I'd prefer not to cut it up and put random parts from different cars in it if i don't have to (I'm not a purist but I'd hate to cut stuff and weld new stuff in from different cars if I don't have to)

Any advice/help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Colin.

I would just search the part name and/or number online and you will find it in some junkyard in another state listed on eBay. My mom had an old Camry radio stop working and the dealer wanted 400 bucks, she found the same radio for 40 bucks on eBay, it was a junkyard in Ohio.

If you want new parts, go with carid.com

for looking up capacity and type of oil and filter for your Volvo you can use this online guide, has most vehicles and very useful if you are looking for the manual and cannot find it.

hope you find this information useful!
