2001 v70 xc vibration

I'm hoping someone can shed light on this problem I'm having. I've developed
a vibration in the drivetrain during acceleration . It's rather severe, not
a knock but an occillation that transfers into the body. It seems to come
from the front. As soon as I let off the gas it disappears completely. I
have noticed that it gets worse during a right turn and almost completely
disappears in a left turn. The frequency seems related to road speed rather
than RPM. Dealer has replaced right front drive axle, tie rods and bushings
to no avail. Car does not seem to vibrate at all when cold. Car has 103,000
miles on it. Any ideas would be appreciated as dealer seems to only be
changing parts in a process of elimination.

Angle gear in the haldex box. Common and typical. Find a shop that has
done a few.

Re: 2001 v70 xc vibration

My '99 XC has the same problem. What is the typical cost on this repair?
ANd, do you need to get it done (will it harm tha car not to)?

First, a 2001 V70XC doesn't have a Haldex coupling. It has a visco.
Second, the angle gear is not part of the Haldex, although it is part
of the AWD driveline.

The angle gear is an expensive part, I'm afraid. Dont know exactly what
the cost is though.

Hold on a second...
I thought that Haldex only came after 2003 on the XC.
Or have I gotten my boxes mixed up?

Re: 2001 v70 xc vibration

Now you guys really have me confused. Do we know if '01 has the haldex box?
is it similar to a CV joint?
I want to sell this car, it's in fine shape otherwise but I don't feel good
selling it witht his problem.

No, it has viscous coupling.

Re: 2001 v70 xc vibration

So if it has a viscous coupling and not the haldex box, I guess that negates
the earlier advice. Anyone have other ideas as to what the problem might be?
Last dealer thought was that it was the front axles. They replaced the right
to no avail. Have not replaced the left yet.
