Re: 98 V70R cv joint rebuild

I'm still concerned that Volvo decided it was important enough to machine these witness marks.
The inner race position is established by the snap ring; the cage fit around the inner race is quite snug, so I still wonder what VADIS has to say about it.

Re: 98 V70R cv joint rebuild

Looks like the actual difference in the cage dimensions is ca. .025", which would lead to a pretty significant installed depth, and of course would mean the balls would ride in a new portion of both races, I'm figuring that would not be a good thing. Anybody have access to VADIS who could look this ...

Re: 98 V70R cv joint rebuild

I had trolled the forum before this post, the few strings I found close to this issue were unresolved. Even the vid you included didn't show clearly if the cage had the witness marks; that's a different style axle as well. I was hoping somebody with VIDA would join the discussion. axle pass side a.J...

Putting the cage on the inner race and dry fitting it into the stub, there is a difference in depth so I would hate to put the greasy mess back together, then have to rinse and repeat.

It's the window area of the cage for the outer CV joint stub axle.

98 V70R cv joint rebuild

Rescued the car from a junkyard - literally. The thing that may have saved it was a timing belt tensioner failure; it was only off a tooth or two when I found it, made a pretty impressive noise when the guy insisted on starting it. Some other maintenance was also deferred. Finally got the axle out o...

Re: 1998 V70 XC Cross country. Trans let go. possibly ECU

The pit road rule back in my NASCAR days was to undo that thing you just did, presuming you still have the original unit. Odd that it ran for a while before becoming unhappy. If it looks like a random unrelated, my 850 turbo scared me once with tranny-failure symptoms but it turned out to be what is...
