If the whole flange coming our of the transfer box has play/movement then you need to replace the transfer box. Not wise to drive the car until this is sorted - the bearings have failed. Probably 4-5 hours labour, o/s driveshaft has to be removed as well as a few other parts.

If the prop is lose (has up/down or side to side movement) in it's own flange (i.e. shaft moves but flange with bolts on does not) then the propshaft joint has failed - there are two types and fairly cheap.

Both are almost unusual but not unheard of faults.

Nope... not if it's the transfer box or prop joint.

Best thing there is get the codes read.

Hi, not sure if this helps, but for budgetary calculation, you should be able to get a. replacement transfer box for about £400, uprated spline sleeve if needed £140. New siren module £150, labour from Indi about £300 ( mine was for fitting transfer box, sleeve and oil).

If there is gearbox problems, prob at least another £2000, but discount labour on transfer box and sleeve.

As they get older, xc90 do not get cheaper to repair, but you have to factor in a cost to replace and if you like the car...

The alarm will have a failed battery that you can replace yourself but you need to remove unit, cut it open and replace the battery. This may or may not fix the problem, but I chose to replace mine with new. This is an easy replacement and the new kit has all the parts and instructions..

Good luck and I hope this helps. John l

Hi Tannaton, I’m new here but hoping for a bit of help following your post about prop flange. I’ve noticed as what can be described as someone running a stick along railings nice, mechanic thinks it’s to do with where the front and back prop shafts meet but cost of new total prop shaft is quiet hefty.

In your post you mention prop shaft joint and wonder if this is the same item and where I can purchase?

Any help would be great, aside from this problem my 2004 XC90 is going well and I’m really loathe to change her.
