Ive tried to google this but any reference to Volvo and Diff leads to a flood of AWD issues not 2wd. I have developed a horrific Diff whine on mine and am just waiting for it to pop. The gearbox is also having a little hissy fit with the 3rd gear every now and then but at 145k its not suprising.

 

Whats the best bet whole new gearbox or is the diff replacable? I would sell the car but I would not know what to do with the huge amount of cash I would be heaving around with me...

I don't know if its replaceable easily, but Tim may well have a box that may have serviceable spares.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair

Yes I guessed at replacement box. Given the juice to go in it isnt cheap this repair is going to make me cry a lot isnt it?

 

Next question who has one?

I don't have a suitable box, I would only get a second hand one if your 100% sure it's good. The only way I have found to source a know good box in your situation is to drive the donor car and log it with VADIS or VIDA. Buy from a Pikey and be prepared to pay twice!

Might be time to kill it for parts. Part exchange is a joke and nobody will buy it making those noises. Is the geartronic box the same in all models?

not as far as I know, I remember XRC2 having major grief with auto box replacement, for cost of getting and fitting (if you can find one) a known good working autobox, if you have space, cut your losses, it could cost you as much as value of car, to repair, and with a used box, even if known good when removed, what if it fails in 5k?

 

I'm breaking T4 at moment for dead box (got a bit carried away at woodbridge :o), and am more or less back at what I paid for car a year ago, but have luxury of use of barn, at farm just up road


I have to be nice, or Mrs Goggins will beat me with a big stick

Grief isn`t a word I`d use lightly lol

 

The car is now on it`s 3 rd autobox and fortunately the latest one is a good un

 

The major bitch was finding the correct box as the car in question is the first of the P2`s with the AW 55-50 but with the older style P1 wiring multiplug and loom a major swap over job in itself never mind fitting the bloody thing I am however quite proficient in fitting them now lol

 

Finding a good auto box can be a total nightmare especially a geartronic one

 

Shop around you might just find one but like tim says if you can drive the donor car first it helps  and deffo don`t go buying one for less then £200 especially from pikey`s as they are most probs knackered

 

Cheers

 

stuart

Hmm what to do. I will have a look for a late model gearbox see if I can find details one. Does anyone know if it is the same in xc90 etc as it broadens the search a little?

It should be from the exact same model or the same engine ect from a V70 and about the same year. Under the airbox on the gearbox you can see the makers plate with required info on it. 

 

 

You'll also need the torque converter.
