three points to the story.

1) loud bang in second gear around a mild turn. (5:20PM)
2) Slight traction loss merging onto a highway in second gear, similar to torque steer or driving over dirty roads. (2:00AM)
3) Turned off DSTC completely at a stop light, gave her gas around a left turn, and heard screaching tires and experienced loss of traction (2:10AM).

Car has no power mods minus Evolve AMS.

6sp Manual my 04.

At 2:10am you should have been in bed instead of out breaking your angle gear!

The things you do for love.

it broke at step 1, symptoms arose at step 2, step 3 was just a test at that point.

Hi FWD, my name is Torque Split. I am sorry to hear of your shortcomings.

Best of luck!

Re: (phuz)

Do you know what *really* pisses me off about the whole FWD ordeal (besides all of the obvious)? The fact that the car is so aware of itself with things such as 4C and whatnot, but if you detach the rear wheels from the drivetrain any which way, the car becomes uncontrollable. Stability and traction do NOT pick up any wheel spin and you can be left flying off the road, not having a clue what's going on. THAT pisses me off.

Re: (AthruC)

girls are nice.

about 70K miles.

I know, with all the modules and sensors in this car how does it not know theres 0 torque going to the rear wheels?

Im dropping her off tomorrow morning and should get a whole new unit installed for the outrageous price of....wait for it...$100 plus tax lol.

Im actually not upset at all, and happy it went before my warranty is out. Ill be driving some other volvo tomorrow as a loaner. getting everything done at kundert volvo.

I'm really kicking myself right about not for not having the warranty. I just hit 60K and every time I drive the car, I expect to hear that bang and lose my AWD. If it doesn't break in the next month or so I'll probably just buy a new sleeve for $80 and install it to avoid destroying the shaft.

I'm sorry, I can't hear you, staring at Kate Beckinsale. Did you say something about making this picture more common in this thread?
