So while having the brakes and alignment check on the "R" at my local bolt on independant Volvo shop. I was directed into the bay area of the shop, there i was directed to look and this little pumpkin located in the front end of chassis" Angle" gear and it was leaking, I was told that these gears leak on occiason and that I should take the car to the dealer because the "R" was still under warranty. At the dealer they installed a new "angle" gear changed the oil and closed out the deal with a wheel alignment. It was all good !!!! who said dealership service centers are bad. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>
