A new overrunning alternator pulley often helps with drive belt squealing or fraying. Pulley alignment should also be inspected when the belt frays or squeals.
Oil seepage can occur at the speed sensor or speed sensor gear adapter (speedometer adapter). A redesigned speed sensor is available and the adapter may need to be replaced.
Vibration problems from the rear brake rotors are common and require replacement of the pads and rotors, and the installation of special shims. The symptoms often occur when the brakes are used heavily from repeated braking, braking from high speeds, and braking while going downhill. The entire vehicle can vibrate and shudder, like it is being driven over train tracks.
Vibration from the rear of the car when braking can be caused by corroded rotors, especially when braking going down hill. The rotors will need to be replaced and special shims installed from Volvo to prevent this from happening again.
