Hi everyone, I'm new here and need help
I have a 2004 S60R with manual transmission, car has around 85K miles. Recently got sock on a road and had to tow the car home as it wouldn't move. I never abuse my car, always drive gentle. After making a left hand turn the car starts slowing down like there was no connection between the engine and transmission or transfer case. I can engage any gear besides 5th for some reason while stationary. When engaging the first gear and releasing the clutch pedal slowly car starts moving but the moment I'm pressing on a gas pedal it makes some grinding/knocking noise. I also made it happen with engaging reverse gear. But was able to do it only once, the other time I tried to release clutch slowly while in 1st gear the car wouldn't move and makes those grinding/knocking noise right away. It gave me a message 'Anti-Skid Service Required' when it all happened but it went away after I shut down the car and started it again. The message is no longer there. I had a front axle replaced maybe 1K miles ago and the shop told me that my transfer case will need to be replaced after 5K miles or so. Could it be a transfer case issue or is there something wrong with my transmission? Please advise what to do or whom to ask, I live near Chicago IL. Car must be towed therefore I'd like to have some basic idea what to do or at least tow it to the right knowledgeable mechanics. Thank you

Most likely cause is that the clutch is worn out. If it's not then the transmission has some type of damage and would have to be replaced. Although normally when the clutch goes out it should not make a grinding noice

I've learned that our R cars require different axles than vanilla s60s (with regard to spline length & # of teeth). Possible your recent axle work used the wrong one & screwed something up, internally?
Just speculating, but when something goes wrong out of the blue like that, logical deduction requires scrutinizing who & what was most recently done to the affected system...

Do you have paperwork and part number of the axle they replaced? I wonder if they used the wrong axle and is possible stripped out the gears on the transmission or wheel bearing. I would check thru VIDA if you can see what showed. My guess is that one of the wheel sensors picked up a wheel wasn't spinning and popped up the antiskid message.

They replaced the passenger axle? Check the bolts on the steady bearing. Sounds like axle might have just popped out a bit.

+1 on the passenger front axle causing the problem. When I replaced a half shaft years ago, the aftermarket Autozone shaft was about .001 too small and allowed the carrier bearing to walk, and it walked the shaft out of the end of the transaxle. On a major freeway. In Rush hour. On a Friday. Lots of horrible noise. no movement. It did set codes. Had it towed to the dealer, they reinstalled my old shaft and charged me $175 to diagnose said slidey bearing.

Permatex 640 sleeve retainer cured that movement, and 200k later on yet another shaft with no more problems. But yes, would do exactly what you described.
