Can anyone confirm (or not) whether its OK to run the car round to warm up the oil, check the level first then if its OK Drain and replace with the same quantity of oil?

Yes, it is OK to do this. You can only get about 500 mL out of the fill hole though and you reset the level by the fill- 40 mL.

Note, having just done mine, the spec on the filler plug is 35 Nm, but mine stripped before that. I felt it start to go, stopped, and left it. If it leaks, it's box out so hoping for the best. It'll be box out next time I change, but that's a problem for a few years time (hopefully!).

Yes, I checked the torque wrench calibration afterwards.

I am going to give it a service, not just change the oil, drop the pump and clean/change the filter. But I will catch what comes out and refill with the same quantity. Then after a few hundred miles just drain the oil and refill.

My local Volvo garage all but laughed in my face when I asked them to order the oil and seals for my haldex.

Turned out the gauze was completely blocked.... Another "lifetime fill" of oil according to volvo

Was the system working at 73k miles?

My 2019 xc60 is at 34k miles now would like a haldex oil replaced and gauze cleaned not confident doing myself although does sound relatively straightforward.

Presume there's no recommendation for diff oil changes either!

Some can be a pain and need the prop taking off to get them apart.
Changing the haldex oil should be part of major service

Default AWD Disabled

Can anyone tell me please how to remove the AWD Disabled - Needs Service sign from the DIM after servicing the AWD. I have changed the oil and cleaned the gauze filter on the Gen 5 Haldex but I can't get rid of the sign and can't find anything about it on Vida. Thanks for any advice. 2013 V40 Cross Country
