I know that the S60's GT transmission has been regularly paned here and elsewhere. But for those of you, like me, who have to endure with yours, has anyone noticed a strange small "clunk" when you first take off having gone from drive to reverse or reverse to drive?

Thanks.

I hear a "clunk" when I first start off in the morning going from reverse to drive. Sounds like it's something "gearing-in" on the Haldex system.

Not sure what model you are driving, but this is on my S60 2.4T AWD.

I have an S60 T5. I'm taking this noise to the dealer tomorrow and will let you know what they say/do.

Re: (Freeworld)

On my 2002 AWD, the dealer installed a software patch that helped.
The "thunk" is still there in certain circumstances but it is greatly improved from before.

Cheers,

Re:

Do you come to a complete stop when you shift from reverse to drive??? I think mine makes a noise like what you are describing when I dont stop all the way...

Re: Re: (Gotballs)

I would never not stop when going from D to R or R to D. Usually I go into N first while my foot's on the break just to make sure I quickly come to a full stop (good for saving your transmission in general). The noise I get only comes when I then step on the gas in the new gear selection. That first acceleration in the new gear (either R or D) produces a loud "clunck". After that all take offs are quiet. Until you go to back to R from D or D from R.

I get the same noise. I have always thought that it was like the brakes adjusting or something. I would like to know what the dealer tells you...

Re: (TurbobrickT5)

The brakes adjusting should never make that kind of noise. My dealer said it was an axle and that the part is on order. Though they said axle, I suspect they meant a CV joint. They didn't say what's wrong with it, only that it needs to be replaced.
