Successful Bevel Gear Rebuild V70-XC70 1998

Old thread but good info.

The pinion bearings in the angle gear packed it in at 325K kms on my 2000 V70-XC 2.4L I5 Turbo (build date: 10/99 , with the later style engine that takes the 142 tooth timing belt).

I got a couple used units for cheap from PicnPull, an 01 and an 04. My 2000 angle gear was much harder to remove because the casting has a deeper sump on it, there is a steering rack mount protruding from the crossmember and a couple of hard mounted aluminum lines are in the way. I ended up removing the oil cooler from the back of the oil pan and jacking the engine up to be able to work the angle gear free. Both the later cars it was a matter of just unbolting the angle gear and wiggling it around a little to get it out.

Anyway here are a couple of practical observations for those contemplating an angle gear swap:
1. The case dimensions appear to be the same, with the exception of the deeper sump on the 2000.
2. The 2000 and 2001 share the same larger (~84 mm OD) output flange. The 2004 output flange is ~74 mm OD.
3. The 2001 and 2004 share the same input sleeve, which sticks into the transmission about 7mm further (the sleeve is longer) and has a larger ID on the transmission side spline, and a seal that runs on the CV axle shaft in the middle.
3. The angle gear side of all three sleeves are identical.
So in my case just using the 2000 input sleeve with the 2001 angle gear assembly lets me bolt it right in. The output flanges appear to be interchangeable so I could also use the 2004 with one of the earlier style output flanges.

Hope this info helps someone out.
