2007 R Sedan, Automatic Transmission

Has anyone noticed a clunking sound when shifting from neutral to drive or reverse? This also happens when the tranny downshifts to 1st gear while coming to a stop.

On my 07 AWD I had a sound kinda like that. Took it to the dealer and they added some spacer or something I think for the driveshaft splines on the front wheels. There was a tech note on it and they fixed it for free. It definitely got fixed though http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

yes... it's disappointing when i do get it....


but i think it's very common...

its' been very annoying lately.. so i scheduled a dealer appoitment...

its embarrising.. for Volvo..

i guess we didn't spend enough on the car to actually get a smooth transmission....

this a problem mostly with the 6-spd trannys.. (only the 2006 and 2007 automatics..)

Mine does it too, but it's happened FAR less frequently since I had my trans flushed about a month ago. It used to happen at least every other day.

so it's not only a 06 or 07 issue??

Re: (m3nt0s)

Have any of you gone to dealer regarding this issue? maybe you can all list your dealer propossed fixes..

i had plenty of tranny issues...

1. took it to a local dealer.. i got the "unble to replicate" fix...

2. took it to a good dealer.. ketstone http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif they changed out my valve body, which did make it a much better functioning transmission... but didn't fix this slow down "thud" problem...

3. i'm going to take it to the local guy again... because a 2 hour trip is too much of a hassle, and I love pain...

+10

This works, extremely well. On all Volvos, not just Rs. They're called the XC90 bolts. Cheap, like $50 for two and I had my indy euro mechanic do it, if the dealer won't do it for free.

Dude.... we're not talking about axle ping... it's a thud.. it's a very noticable transmission shift when coming to a slow stop..... not the axle ping issue...
