Product Description


In AWD Volvos, the driveshaft/propeller shaft connects the transmission (via the angle gear) to the rear axle. The rubber boot protecting the driveshaft's front CV joint tends to prematurely crack and tear thanks to the heat of the nearby exhaust downpipe; unlike, say, front axle joints, a failed boot here is so far underneath the car that you may only notice it after it's flung out all of its grease and the joint has started clicking or vibrating.

This kit replaces this troublesome front CV joint of your P1 or P2 Volvo's AWD driveshaft (the rear CV joint is not replaceable). The kit includes everything you need to completely R&R the joint, including the CV joint itself, joint c-clip, boot cover and gaskets, boot clips, joint cover/end cap, and grease.

We recommend double-checking fitment, as some P2 models, such as high output R and V8 models and early V70 AWD/V70 XC models with viscous couplers, use different driveshafts. It's 24 spline, with a 78mm o.d. and with the joint normally marked HLJ75 on the side.

About Genuine Volvo

Everything IPD supplies under the "Genuine Volvo" designation are the factory original Volvo parts. These are the same parts that Volvo used to manufacture your vehicles on the assembly line. All Volvo supplied Genuine Volvo parts are made to specifications by Volvo and under their strict quality control guidelines. Our customers should expect the same high-quality when purchasing Genuine Volvo products which in the past were exclusively available as dealer only items. Volvo relies on other high-quality OEM manufactures such as Lemforder, BehrSachs, Bosch, Valeo, Siemens, VDO, Corteco, and many more to maintain its dedication to quality and safety.

In 2017, IPD announced that it was the exclusive North American distributor for Genuine Classic Volvo parts. We are proud of our Volvo heritage dating back to 1963, a reputation that is unmatched by others in the industry.

Many may not know this but Volvo in Latin roughly translates to "to roll".  The company was founded back in 1927 by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larsson as a spin-off from ball-bearing manufacturer SKF.  While the Volvo logo looks like the biology symbol for male, it's really the Swedish symbol for Iron. With a nod to its heritage in alloys, Volvo chose a logo that depicted a ring bisecting at one o’clock. Today Volvo is known around the world as one of the most iconic brands known for safety, longevity, and its enthusiast following.

IPD has been proudly serving the Volvo community since 1963. We are motivated to be the very best destination for your Volvo needs. Our customer and vehicle first approach means that your experience is our first priority. We have truly hassle-free returns, an in depth Volvo blog, and provide DIY Volvo guides and videos for many of our products.
