My dealer has informed me that my driveshaft is kaput. It was starting to squeak on cold startup. Quoted me $1600 to replace it, $1200 for the parts. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> Anyone got thoughts on a cheaper route? Anyone make rebuilts for the XC90?<p>I told my wife I'm going to remove it and just give her a front wheel drive XC90.

Re: Replacement Driveshaft (Bigjon)

I bought a new drive shaft for our XC90 online for about $600 a few months ago as memory serves me. My local shop (non Volvo) charged about $180 labor so all in it cost me about half of what you were quoted if that helps. <p>I got the part from <A HREF="http://www.myswedishparts.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.myswedishparts.com</A>.

Pretty sure it gets icy in PA in winters. A heavy FWD V8 doesn't sound too attractive to me.
