2001 V70 XC Missing bolt on top of transmission case? Empty placeholder for a bolt

Post by mastrokani »

Hello, I recently discovered that there is an empty placeholder for a bolt (?). I asked a few people, even at my local Volvo dealership and they all said they are not sure what this is for and it is supposed to look that way.

What concerns me, however, is that the threads looks squeaky clean. It almost seems like the bolt was recently removed.

Does anyone know what's going on?

thank you

Welcome, and I’m sure some with an early P2 will share a picture.

It might help to look at the parts diagram for Volvo parts webstore

The threads in this hole are heavily oxidized on two AW55 I have.
