Re: Strut Assembly

I had some quick struts in my car for less than 6 months. The problems with them were many; really incorrect spring rates, ride height was at least 2 1/2 inches too high, rebound damping was incorrect, and the general appearance and hardware was cheap and didn't look like it was going to last very l...

Re: Drivetrain Noise, possibly driveshaft? 2005 S60R

Well thats good, now you just have to find a good one at the wreckers that still has a good spline. How many miles were on it?

Re: Drivetrain Noise, possibly driveshaft? 2005 S60R

I wonder if it might be the CV shaft support bearing? You might get lucky on this one. If the flange isn't sloppy and there's no leakage on the Bevel Gear it might be ok.

Re: Drivetrain Noise, possibly driveshaft? 2005 S60R

It sounds like something inside the Bevel Gear like a bearing that came apart. I don't think it's the Collar as they usually make a buzzing noise as they spin over worn splines. Regardless you'll find out soon enough. I was able to drive mine in FWD with the BG removed and the collar in place while ...

Volvo V-70 with back hatch wing

Just wondering if anyone knows what models of V 70 had the rear wing over the hatch door? There's a low mile 2005 V 70 in my area that has one. Was this an option for all models? I kinda thought it was a V-70R thing. I'm not sure if this car might be a unbadged R model.

Re: Towing with P2 Volvo

Nice "garage sale" video! Thats typical of what happens when the trailer approaches or exceeds the tow vehicle size and weight. My next door neighbour did that this summer, his minivan owner's manual said he could tow a 4200 lb trailer so he bought a 4100 lb trailer............then loaded it up with...

Re: 2.5T AWD - got a bearing sound/ whining noise underneath

I listened to your sound clip about 50 times. It's definitely coming from the Bevel Gear, almost sounds like one of the bearings inside, or a right CV axle support bearing.......or the collar sleeve. Those are the only things that can make any noise in there. It still doesn't make any sense that the...

Re: 2.5T AWD - got a bearing sound/ whining noise underneath

I would have to hear the noise you are talking about to be a little more sure about the diagnosis. Any chance you could record it on a short drive and upload the clip? You will need to remove the angle gear to inspect it, and there won't be any getting lucky with just a collar sleeve, that sleeve te...

Re: 2.5T AWD - got a bearing sound/ whining noise underneath

The propshaft turns all the time with the transmission through the bevel gear. If the whining sound is coming from the front around the floor area it is likely the collar sleeve spinning on the bevel gear input shaft. Pulling the haldex fuse in the back may stop the whining if the splines are just s...

Re: Rear engine mount - sway bar in the way

There's a pretty good video on YouTube by SiRobb that shows how to do it. You're just going to have to get a bit creative to get the socket between the sway bar and up to the bolt, I used a standard 3/8 Craftsman 13mm socket and u-joint and extension, it fits......but just barely. I'm wondering if y...
