      Really dubious about any problem with the front right carrier bearing, but it's probably worth checking. Unfortunately, it's difficult to get a good reading on the carrier with my infrared pyrometer....

      Thanks for the tip, Michael. Sad to relate, pulling the handbrake going uphill at a steady 50 mph made not a whit of difference in the wobble. It's not the type of tank-slapper that threw me off the...

      Appreciate the response. I should have explained: the problem is a wobble felt through the steering wheel when accelerating or going uphill at 45-50 mph. A member suggested disabling the Haldex to...

      Pull fuse #41?

      To test possible damage to the rear driveshaft, I propose to pull the fuse to the Haldex. Owner's manual shows that fuse #41 controls : "awd, fuel filter".

      Anyone know what will happen if I pull...

      Not a perfect trial, but I'm going to remove the Haldex control fuse and try mv V50 to see if the nature of its vibration issues might change some. Going uphill, it wobbles at about 45 to 55 mph; the...

      Re: cars in VA

      The 2010 S80's nav can easily be updated, for those of us who prefer steering wheel controls to itty bitty phone screens.

      Shopped A4 and A6 Avants hard before getting the V50 T5. My son even had me test an S4 Avant out in SLC. T chains scared me off the V8's; 2.0's had cam follower issues; and the 3.2 V6 had zero...

      Wonder what sort of fuel mileage the perfectly operating speedometer indicates; my old modded 145 returned about 16 mpg on leaded premium - with SU's, hotter cam, and 185/70x15's.
