Loud Clicking / Chatter Noise From Front Axle

I had a loud clicking or chattering noise that was coming from my left front wheel area on my Volvo. This was somewhat maddening, as it would come and go. When it got so pronounced, I took it to my dealer's mechanic; he heard it, but couldn't pinpoint the exact source. He did rule out wheel bearing failure, and due to its' extreme left location, ruled out any transmission or angle drive issues (which had themselves been recently serviced). Fin...

2007 Volvo XC90 Reviews

Clogs in the AC Drain Tube have resulted in over $1,000 of additional charges because the clog had to be cleared $125, it caused water to leek in the cabin so I had to dry and clean the driver side carpet $270, and it ruined the A/C Blower Motor $785. I can't understand how the clogging occured and how to prevent it in the future so I'm afraid it will happen again.
