    Default 2001 V70 XC Angle gear and rear differential fill

    After doing much research I am unable to find the answer to my question and I'm hoping someone here has the answer. It appears that my 2001 is a special breed of Volvo and it's hard to find the exact information I need . Looking at many excellent videos on changing fluid on the front angle gear and rear differential is different depending on the model year. I see on a 2000 you fill both units until the fluid starts to flow out and than close it up. On a 2003 you fill and than back fluid out 100/160 ml respectively? The 4 wheel drive system is different on a 2001/2002 model and am wondering which is correct for my 2001. Also I believe I read somewhere last year that there is a Volvo fix for "venting" the rear differential to keep the pressure from building and than forcing fluid out the seals ? Any help with this for my beloved XC would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help...

    Xheart took out his leaky rear diff not to long ago and discovered there was a pin hole vent. See post #41, I have not seen any cleaning methods discussed before. This is an 01 so should be same as your car. Might PM Xheart since he has seen all this stuff up close and fully disassembled.
