      Any Advice on finding A P2 R M66 passenger axle

      I have scoured the internet and called just about every place I can.

      I've been checking VSBM and contacted Volvo Directly.

      The axles condition doesn't matter I just want my car back,

      after months of searching I found a thread here recommending I send mine to CVJ axles, so I did.

      they Re-manufactured it within a day, AWESOME! but on the way back to me UPS lost the package.

      Now CVJ is going to make sure I am taken care of but I cant find an axle. in any condition.

      any information will be helpful.

      My P2 SR will be getting parted out soon here, and is an M66 car. If you can wait a week or so I'll have one available to sell. I don't think any of my friends have spoken for it yet.

      Will they ever do another production run or is this it for the M66 from Volvo?

      I'm not encouraging anyone to start hoarding parts but 4 years ago, when I blew axles on my P2R the dealer warned me that they had been advised that Volvo would make them NLA soon. Looks like they kept their word.

      I would suggest buying a set and having them rebuilt if you plan on keeping your M66 R car for a while.

      I just replaced mine with a trakmotive axle from rockauto. A lot of guys have had luck with these and for $73 shipped you can’t beat the price. I kept my oem and plan on having it rebuilt it. If interested, you have to type in the part number for the axle (vo-8041) or else you won’t find it.

      I can confirm that they fit, but they are not the same:

      The only problem is that the replacement ones use a tri-pod type of inner joint, its not as strong as the OE style (cross groove). I wouldn't recommend it on an R if you have an heavy "R" foot.

      It should however get you by until you find a replacement. I ordered one for just in case.

      I've seen the GKN axles in a few places. They're supposedly good quality, similar to Volvo.
