At typically over $1000 per replacement including labor, and some reportedly needing more than one before they've hit 100k miles, this expensive problem has finally been dealt with. Install this collar gear as a preventative measure and let your drive train worries slip away.

I can not guarantee fitment on a worn transmission output gear or angle gear input gear so don't wait till it fails!  However, one of the prototypes was recently installed on a car with a failed OEM collar and he had this to say:

  • "...it feels stronger & heavier, tighter fit, correct Volvo gaskets - I'm happy to support this new collar..."  See the reviews here.
Another customer with an M58 transmission said:
  • "...Everything fit perfectly, the collar was tight but not impossible to fit, just the right amount of difficulty.  Compared to the stock collar it had basically no slop where the stock had up and down play and rotational, the PdV had none!"

Ryan's personal log:  80,000+ miles from June 2013-2019.  Likely over 3 million combined miles with the over 250 units sold.  Zero failures of other driveline components reported blaming this stronger collar gear.
