      Maybe I'm not reading it completely but I don't see any relevance in the link you posted.

      I had to replace mine because it seized up in the bearings, not necessarily because it was damaged or crushed. How does this redesigned housing help in this regard? Any documentation from Volvo?

      The parts person I ordered from informed me the old bearing is no longer available to order, he had some old bearing stock left over; I took the opportunity to get the new one instead.
      I was able to take the bearing apart and cleaned it. The edge of the housing have a much bigger double lip and the bearing race seats is slightly larger.
