Thoughts on this DIY for the AW50-55 Transmission ?
This is a common problem with early P2 transmissions. You can buy the cover from iPD, which also has a step-by-step guide. I won’t repeat information in that guide, and please read that guide first, as I reference it.
Bonus! Volvo Facts
- The Volvo 144 made its appearance in 1966, with a plethora of safety systems, unheard of at that time period. It came equipped with a collapsible steering column, four-wheel disc brakes, three-point safety belts with new locks, a strengthened chassis with energy-absorbing crumple zones (in the front and rear), and a V-shaped separate circuit brake system which would continue to work, even if one of the circuits went off.
- Volvo installed front and rear fog lights on its vehicles in 1987 – and were the first car-maker to do so.
