Hello,<p>is it possible to deactivate the AWD system on a ´98 V70-R AWD?<p>Ive heared that you can deactivate it by the S60/V70R 2001+ by removing a fuse or something like this. Is that also possible with the 98 VR?

(Store the coupling in the trunk.)<p>This may be the best method if the angle gear is still good. It allows reactivation of AWD in the future by simply replacing the viscous coupling cartridge -- the rest of the AWD components will still be on the car. No need to go looking for that misplaced driveshaft...<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
