Own a UK 03 MT S60R with 84k on the clock. Angle gear was replaced by Volvo about 10k miles ago. Car drives fine, holds boost between 0.85-1.0bar (depending on whether I use 98 or 95 RON <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">), no apparent issues. However, I noticed a few drips of oil on the drive few weeks back. Volvo had it in for servicing last week, cleaned up the area, and asked me to monitor it. Saw a couple of fresh drips earlier today. Here's the affected area:<p><IMG SRC="http://i618.photobucket.com/albums/tt266/afzalmj/gearbox.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>It's coming from between the angle gear and gearbox. I was told it's not the RMS. I've put a red square around where I believe it originates, but its hard to see further up...Oil builds up on the casing next to the bolt above the square box, eventually dripping and leaving a nice oil spot on the driveway <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Any thoughts as to what it could be?<p>Getting to my wits end with this car! Few weeks after I got it, I had a £1700 service bill @ Volvo! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Thanks .....

Re: Unexplained Oil Leak S60R (afzalmj)

it's angle gear oil. Dealer probably overfilled it and it's venting from the venting-valve. It will stop leaking .... just keep it clean with highpressure water so you know when it stops.
