So, when we were replacing my angle gear sleeve, we hit the little, round plastic vent cap and it broke and fell out. I planned to stop by the dealership and track another one down (and then figure out some way to get it on there.. PITA.) but ignored/forgot it until now. I was too excited to have AWD drive to care..

Super important, "wrecking my angle gear as I drive" part, or just get it replaced soon.

Finally, the question I'm really worried about. Will Volvo even sell me one? I didn't see it as a part in the online catalog..

Re: Plastic Vent Cap for Angle Gear (zabto)

You should be able to order one. They are replaceable. Some Angle gears don't even have them.

Pity you didn't wait, we need a voluenteer to try the harder sleeve from a 2009 XC70 D5 AWD...

Re: Plastic Vent Cap for Angle Gear (adykes)

I know
I saw that after I ordered the part and installed. The sleeve analysis info came back right after I installed mine. (Which didn't make me feel good about having spent 5-6 hours putting in a potentially inferior part) I'm sure it will fail again soon, then I will happily be a Guinnea pig and swap out for a stronger one. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif
