Push in the new fluid. Took it back to the shop twice and spoke to the owner who admitted that his nucklhead employee put in the wrong fluid.
Sure enough, it was the Angle Gear. Remove the head shielding above the downpipe-to-catback flange. You don't need to worry about damaging anything in the freezer, but you can melt the bearing cages and start to overheat the fine bearing surfaces if you get them too hot so don't go over 300deg. As Dave at Volvo Specialists explained to me, the Haldex fluid is responsible for activating the clutch plates that then transmit power to the rear bevel gear, and then rear wheels. Overall, I would highly recommend this car. By the way struts are now a part available from Munroe dealers and cost half what Volvo want for them and they out perform in distabnce the original equipment. Originally the dealer sent me a 8636194 but it was too big by millimeters.
From under car, undo two bolts and remove the driveshaft support cap. And I can report to you today that I've done this successfully. With the battery disconnected, there should be 60 ohms between the two wires. They also used the 75w140 for the angle gear and rear diff.

Use the opportunity when you have the angle box off to replace the turbo oil return seal I did mine a few days ago 2004 S60R. Plus, with all the activity surrounding the sleeve replacement metal fragments angle grinding and debris will enter the gearbox. If the driveshaft is not turning, remove the angle gear and inspect the coupling sleeve between the angle gear and transmission. You can't remove the transmission without removing the angle gear unit first. Not a brake or gas pedal was bent out of place. They tried to prove this to me by putting the car up and spinning the front tires by hand.
We've also been in accidents ranging from low speed fender benders, to hitting utility poles, to full head on collisions, some as fast as 65 mph after braking on the highway. When you do this you allow the prop shaft centre support to move freely — important for the next job. Suggest you get the shop to show you the parts once they are removed and explain this to you.
