    Referencing your write up Astro "Major torque needed to remove the pinion nut." Can this nut be loosened before un-mounting AG?

    I would think so. It's question of clearance and ability to swing the wrench under there. I would imagine that if the transmission were still in park, that you wouldn't need the counter hold that I used, so you would just need the socket and wrench.

    The TSB (Volvo) procedure has you do it on the bench, as I recall...so, I'm wondering if Volvo had a good reason to not put the 150+ ftlbs on it while it was still bolted up.

    I've got no idea if there might be a concern.
