Does anyone know if Volvo, or anyone else, has identified a fix for this other that "applying light pressure by hand" to make the buzzing stop? <p>For some reason I only get this in 5th gear, its not terribly annoying but I would like to make it go away if posible. <p>Thank in advance for any assistance you can provide<p><br>TNN43-40-2004-03-03 Title: Buzzing Noise from M66 Shifter, S60R/V70R. <br>Some customers may complain of a "Buzzing" noise from the manual shift lever in S60R / V70R cars. The noise is most easily heard when accelerating at high engine RPM (3000 RPM and higher). Applying light pressure to the shifter by hand will make the noise disappear.<p>

You need new shifter cables (1 or both)

Re: Shifter "buzzing" in 5th gear (JRL)

I get it in 6th, only. 'Light pressure by hand' is my only fix too, short of bungie cables.<p>Is this a warranty-covered item? Has anyone successfully Volvo to fix it?

Re: Shifter "buzzing" in 5th gear (jstro)

Kind of an old issue. My shifter always has always buzzed over 85 mph in 6th. You should hear the sunroof howl at 155!<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=9937" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=9937</A>

I had the 5th gear buzz and new cables took care of it.

Re: Shifter "buzzing" in 5th gear (jstro)

I had this issue a few years ago, but if I remember correctly it was 4th gear for me. At first Volvo couldn't hear the noise, so I went on a ride with a tech and pointed it out to him. After some research I beleive he found a TNN for it and I havent noticed it since. I dont think I have that paperwork anymore but I will check later just in case, either way at the time it was done free of charge under my warranty. This was done at Wentworth Volvo in Exeter NH.

Re: Shifter "buzzing" in 5th gear (new hampshiRe)

No dealership would ever look into it for me. Herb Gordon Volvo couldn't hear it because it was above highway speeds. They refused to fix it. The fix when I was in Germany was iffy, sometimes it worked, but others it didn't so I held off at the time. Now I just drive with hand on shifter.

If you know what you're doing it's not THAT big of a deal, but you need to remove the console to change shifter cables
