    2008 XC70 rear-end waddle

    Hi,

    2008 XC70 with 128k miles. I've noticed a slight waddle that has been developing over time. Just put new tires all around (ouch!) and that helped the ride quality overall, but the rear-waddle...

    Finally got it out, once I took the wheels off, and the two arms out of the way on each side, it came out much easier. The e-brake cable was the only really annoying part. Having a jack to help lower...

    I agree with JRL, sometimes you can find new volvo plugs on ebay pretty cheap. Plus they're pre-gapped I believe. This is one thing you don't want to cheap out on.

    Just bite the bullet and buy a new set. It's good to have spares anyway. They're pricey, but unless you can confirm the exact non-Volvo replacement, it's the best way to go.

    Thanks for all the responses. To clarify, a whine might not be the best way to describe the sound. It sounds more like a howl I'd say. It also sounds like it may be coming from the rear the last time...

    Differential or Angle/Bevel Gear?

    Have a 2001 XC with 121k miles. Is there an easy way to determine if a low whine i'm hearing is related to problems in the diff or angle gear? I have spares of both but obviously the angle...
