Have a 1999 V70R with a blown out transmission case so a rebuild is not possible., it's for sale here;
https://forums.swedespeed.com/showt...C70-HPT-B5234T9-motor-swap-needs-transmission

My nephew wants to take a crack at fixing it for a winter car and has a 1998 xc70 transmission that he said he could make work by swapping the solenoids.
Being a new to the unicorn years 98-00 I thought only a 99-00 would work. I told him to just find one from the same year but around the NE they are far and few between.

How many curse words will I hear from my garage while he is attempting the 98 to 99 swap?

A lot. Totally different and not compatible. Just get a 99-00 xc trans the pn is the same and compatibility is the same. Cheap.
