'98 vs. '99 parts

Post by kcookvt » Mon Oct 28, 2019 11:01 am

My beloved '98 V70 AWD died. Many new parts including exhaust and front wheel hubs. I have found a '99 that needs front hubs and exhaust. I just replace the front hubs on my '98 within the last year. I am wondering whether the hubs from the '98 can be placed on the '99. They came from FCP Euro, and the part numbers are different for each year. Is there any reason that they would NOT fit? Alternatively, is there a way to make them fit (such as swapping out the front axles along with the hubs)?

Is the 99 an AWD? Not sure if the AWD and FWD front hubs are the same but no reason they shouldn't be unless the newer car uses the newer style axles with a bolt in the ends rather than the older style using the large 32 or 36mm nuts at the hub. Not sure if the V70 XC are the same hubs or not.

Should also add, you need to check the number of splines on the axles as they may be different too.

Sorry to hear of the passing of the 98 AWD.

Volvo web store is the best place to settle these kind of questions.

For the 1999

Hmmm. part 12, 1999 XC hub is not shown as available - GULP!!


FCP shows the 1999 and 2000 wheel bearing hubs don't fit the -1998, I believe that as the driveshafts are different too.

How dead is your 1998? Ive got a parts 1998 that I can donate most anything left, Im so far ahead on it, its getting obscene.
