    If they want $1100 to install new hand controls in a Volvo I think it's a bargain.

    To do a nice clean installation in a Volvo takes time.

    Volvo's much like other european vehicles are usually tricky and need custom stuff made for each application.

      Wow. That seems so high for just an install. I got a new Toyota last July and used the same hand controls out of my Honda. They ordered a new bracket, removed them from the Honda and installed them on the Toyota for $289.

        i hear ya. other place i called said 930. thing is the bracket on our altima is the bracket mpd says to use for the volvo. the universal strap on.
        then the one place wants to put the stupid foot block on which i have sitting on a shelf.

          Mobility Dealers S*ck...

          Just had HC installed in a bmw, the installer and manufacture told me $700 for the install and $500 for the special mount.

          Had a friends son do it, took him two hours and he had never seen HC. Works great and turned out great. Oh, didn't need a special mount used the mount from the last install.

          good luck!!!

              Yeah, should be real easy...just a big clamp with the universal mount to the steering column shaft. Dont be afraid to trim and tunnel through plastic stuff to make a nice neat tucked in install.

                our thoughts too. the altima was fairly simple.
