3.2L: Power system service urgent and screech

Post by carboncow » Fri Nov 03, 2017 6:06 am

Helping a friend a few hundred miles away with them. I'm a transplant from the P2 XC70 world but looking into a 3.2L myself, so interested.

She has a 2007 3.2 with 100K miles FWD.

This am 50F and raining she said it lit up with "power system service urgent" message and got a terrible screech sound but went away over 40mph and she said she got to work just fine.

Something else?

Loose alt drive cog for the alternator cuff. The alternator driven cog has a one way clutch and it is likely seized or slip then catching and has stressed and loosened the drive cog. The drive cog is a faint interference fit onto a faintly tapered stubby shaft.
