Hello Volvo folks….I am the proud owner of a 06 XC70 now without AWD. Seems the bevel gear has given up amazingly after less than 2000kms from my last extended warranty date. How's that for terrific engineering?
Question is what do most owners do? Replace the whole assembly, repair what is likely the stripped spline itself and reseal, or survive the winter with front wheel drive?
No doubt there are a few with similar issues given the ramble on various search engines! I would really appreciate hearing what others have done and how reliable those repairs have been.
