It can. It needs to be looked at first, by someone you trust, second, by someone who knows Volvo 4 and all wheel drive systems. Now, it very well could have been that one of the U-joints went bad and they didn't want to repair it or.... it may have had a transfer case or front drive axle issue. In this order of probability 1. bad joint 2. t-case issue and last 3. front drive axle issue. If it had an axle issue, I'm pretty sure that other noises and issue would be present though, so look at 1 and 2. Let me know.

How to adjust parking brake xc90 2007 v8

0. Put you car in "P" and DO NOT press the parking brake with you foot.
1. Lift up your car (about 4 feet to work easily)
2. Remove the back wheels.
3. Remove the two plugs from the combined drum / disc brake.
(it's in the middle part of the drum on the outer surface)
4. Grab a regular screwdriver and start adjusting by turning the 2 bolts inside the hole where you removed the rubber plugs.
5. Once you are ready, put back the plugs + mount the wheels.

Note: Please do not over-tighten the setting / calibrating bolts. You will NOT feel it! The best setting is, when you can still turn the drum with your hands, but you already hear that inside the drum the brake pads are slightly in contact with the drum.

USE GLOVES, as it's a dirty job.

This is some more info just because you have removed the wheels. I mean, if you have a bit more time you may do a short check (this is not related to the parking brake adjustment but highly recommended):
Once you have your car lifted and the wheels remove,
check also the silents and the shock absorbers for leeks. Also check the brake disks for thickness and how even they is. Check the thickness of the brake pads. If they are less than 2-3 mm I'd change them too! Not a big work, I can send you a 5 minute video hoe to do it.
You can clean the brakes with a brake cleaner once your car is lifted.
When re-mounting the tires use Zink-spray around and on the bolts of the wheel. This will help you removing them next time or at the next tire change. DON'T SPRAY IT ONTO THE DISKS!!!
