XC90 parts are available through a ton of online and offline suppliers, and there are a lot of things to consider when it comes to quality, price, shipping etc. Never buy a cheap XC90 part if you can avoid it. You’ll end up paying more in the long run. If I had to recall every part I’ve ever bought for my 2004 Volvo XC90 2.5T, I’d be in trouble. My memory just isn’t that good. The good new is, I keep a binder full of receipts for almost every part I’ve bought.
Some of the parts on this list have yet to be installed and were bought because they were on-sale or because of a planned trip over the border.* Also some off these parts are tools. I’m including them anyway for reference as some were needed to removal install parts listed in this post. I also haven’t included oil because the price fluctuates so greatly depending on where I buy and if it’s on-sale. I’ve linked a few parts so you can see current prices.

NOTE: Prices that I’ve listed don’t necessarily reflect current prices. They reflect what I paid at the I bought the XC90 parts.
I’m not going to go through the hassle of adding these numbers up because they don’t include the installation fees for some of the things I can’t (or won’t) do myself. The list may look kind of long, but really a lot of the things on this list of Volvo XC90 parts are wear items – or were necessary to perform a larger repair. I haven’t installed all of the parts and that’s mostly because I didn’t totally need everything on this list, but the prices were right and so I bought them – brake parts is a good example of this. I’ve still got some life left in my brakes, but I bought all the parts anyway. I’ll install them likely in the spring. So you can see that it’s a complete list of XC9 parts – and not a list of XC90 repairs.
^ This is a Genuine Volvo (GV), blue box XC90 part or is made by an OEM manufacturer for that particular part. Example: Ate is the OEM for brakes on my car. Instead of buying the GV version, I simply bought the Ate version.
*I live in Canada but make semi-frequent trips across the border, so if there’s a deal on XC90 parts that I don’t need at the time, I may buy them anyway to coincide with a cross-border trip.
