      Itís not exactly the opposite experience. We are using new aftermarket axles whereas most are re-built. Iím not claiming all aftermarket axles are fine. Just newly made aftermarket axles.

      I think the main issue with most aftermarket axles are that they are remanufactured. The same is true for Volvo axles though. Cardone Select are brand new.

      Quite the contrary to my experience. Volvo OEM axles have never lasted for me. I would argue they are in fact overpriced pieces of junk. The original axles that come on the car from the factory...

      Did the "205k mile service" yesterday. Nothing exciting, just an oil and filter change with a tire rotation. At this mileage, nothing exciting is a good thing!

      Squeeze them with the channel locks anyway. They kind of pop in with your fingers but not all the way. They make a loud pop when they are in all the way.

      I did that a few months ago while I was replacing the blower motor and resistor. It was nice to be able to do it while I was in there. It's kind of a pain replacing just the cabin filter.

      You don't need to remove the speaker. Just raise the window up about half way and pop this little black cover off.

      This is on my driver's side but it should be the same on the passenger side.
