Angle/Bevel gear.

Good day all. Hate start a new topic for this although i cannot find a good answer.
I have a 99 v70xc awd. I need a bevel gear.
Am finding conflicting info.
Some say only 98 and 99 will work. Some say 99 up to 2002 will work.
Any help or if someone is selling one?

Re: WTB 16T Turbo

you can buy a rebuild kit on ebay for 50 bucks or so. maybe less. they are easy to rebuild. just remember the reverse thread nut.
im also sure you can find a video to walk you through it. it will take you about 45 mins to rebuild once off the car.

let us know if you can start it in park and neutral.
