    My experience has been positive since I deleted the angle gear and prop shaft 2 years ago. It drives fine and gives me 2 extra miles per gallon of gas. Another benefit is that it is soooo much easier...

    Not sure how easy it is to get this part since google search doesn't show any hits from north america.

    Thx, Astro! Unfortunately it's not the hose. Kind of curious why this model has no rebuild kit available. Maybe very few of them fail and there is no market for a rebuild kit ...|

    leaking PS pump - no rebuild kit available?

    My 2005 XC70 is getting a leak from the PS pump. It is a Bosch ZF pump. I looked everywhere and only see rebuilds costing around $300. Is this the only option? Why is there no rebuild kit available...

    The wear is normal, but who knows how long it will last. Mine looks just like that when it failed at 182K miles. I made it a FWD to get rid of the horrible noise.

    In my 05 XC70, there is no room above the cat for a straight spacer. So I have to buy one with a 90 degree angle.

    Yeah, no regret cutting the shaft after seeing the wear on the input shaft of the angle gear. As long as it drives fine as FWD, it's just not worth investing anything on this car at this mileage.

    UPDADE: I made the car into FWD. From what I can see the sleeve is not stripped, but the angle gear side is worn. So, it seems to me the material for the sleeve is harder than earlier cars, causing...

    I gave up - bolt broke in the 2nd screw hole in the back and my punch also snapped when pounding through the unthreaded holes. The broken bolts are stamped with 12.9, so they are the strongest bolts...

    Thanks, vtl. I think M8x20 is the right size, but I don't have a good counterhold to keep the shaft still. I'll get a good strap wrench to give it another try. I do have the front loose, so I'm now...

    OK. I got the allen head screws out. I also removed the two screws from the center. Now, how do I get it out? Do I pull it out from the rear or just drop it to the floor? Thanks!
