Okay running Volvo 2003 XC 90 on two-wheel drive until AWD repaired?

Post by robertjsisk »

2003 Volvo XC 90 AWD transfer box and gears & front section of drivetrain trashed on trip. Removed AWD bevel gear (interfaces with angle gear inside) and drive shaft which turns wheels for AWD. It will be a while before I can get transfer case and new drive shaft. Any risk to vehicle/tranny/front-wheel drive running on just two-wheel drive? Vehicle is not driven much anyway and AWD as a component is not essential.

Thanks
Rob
