      AOC leaking

      Hello,
      My Volvo dealer has diagnosed that my AOC = Automated On-demand Coupling is leaking, but that the seal is not available separately and that therefore the whole AOC needs to be replaced at a cost of about $8,000! Do you have alternative & as good but more reasonable alternatives?

      For what it's worth. My AOC had a terrible leak, ended up being the filter cover seal. Quick and easy fix, and got the fluid serviced at the same time. I'd get a second opinion. Also, lots of theses vehicles are making it to the scrap heap, I'm sure you can find a functional used unit for much much cheaper than $8k.
