There was a seller that sold just the bearing itself, in either size that Volvo used.
Trying to find it now...
Buy from "him" - who? The Ebay seller, or ColoradoDriveshaft?
My wife's '00 V70XC started making a whirring noise that goes along with vehicle speed. I thought it was a wheel bearing, but the dealership (that just replaced the ETM just under the 10yr warranty limit!) said it's the rear driveshaft center bearing. How can I diagnose it before buying the replacement? Remove the DS, and feel the bearing (crunchy/noisy)? I'm new to Volvos, but been wrenching for ages...
If the center bearing is shot, can the DS be removed and can the car be run as a FWD temporarily, or will that screw up something else? Anything odd involved with replacing the driveshaft, or will the normal shop tools be enough? Appx 2 hrs? Thanks!
