Replacing Volvo XC90 rear diff

Asked by Tyson Edwards

The bearings in the rear diff of my Volvo XC90 are gone and my mechanic has told me that Volvo can’t supply replacements; they can only supply a complete diff, which costs $6000. The bearings are odd types and not available from the regular bearing suppliers. What can I do?

It’s a sign of the times, carmakers are not supporting their products the way they once did and more and more owners are finding themselves stuck as you are. It seems we’re now meant to sell our cars before they get to the point of needing major surgery. You could try sourcing the bearings from overseas via the Internet, or you could also try and find a second hand diff that has serviceable bearings and for that as a unit.
