if you have a hydraulicallyassisted clutch, check the reservoir. it's located on the firewall in the vicinity of the brake vacuum booster. if it's low/empty, fill it. you may have air in the system which will require bleeding. what is the mileage? you may be due for a clutch. if you google, "hard shifting manual trans" you will gain more insight on the matter.
NO: 43-37 DATE: 2-25-2003 MODEL: MY 2001-2002 S60, V70, V70 XC SUBJECT: Shift Quality Issues due to B4 Servo Cover Failure, 2-3 upshift harshness or flare CHASSIS: These chassis breaks are approximate: S60: 062000-152000 V70: 116000-230000 V70 XC: 036000-067100
TRANSMISSION SERIAL NUMBER: The first 3 digits of the serial number on the affected transmissions will be between 01C (March 2001) and 01L (December 2001). DESCRIPTION: In the AW 55-50, brake number four (B4), is only applied in 3rd gear. The B4 is applied by a piston, which is covered by an aluminum cap. This cap has a steel washer crimped to its inside surface, and a rubber cushion that sits between the cover and the washer.
If this washer breaks free from the crimps it will become concaved because of the B4 piston return spring pressure. This loose washer can cause:
" 2-3 upshift flare / slip
" Harsh 2-3 upshifts
" 3-4 upshift flare / slip
" Harsh 4-3 downshifts
Replacing the broken B4 cover with a new one (PN 30651771) will remedy these symptoms.
HAVE YOU CHECKED TO MAKE SURE THE DIMMER SWITCH HAS NOT ACCIDENTALLY GOTTEN TURNED ALL THE WAY DOWN, OR IT COULD BE THE DIMMER SWITCH IS BAD,& IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY CHECKED ,CHECK THE ILLUM FUSE,CHECK IT, BUT ALSO CHECK OTHER FUSES AS WELL ,BECAUSE IN SOME CARS THEY INCORPORATE POWER SOURCES TO ITEMS ON THE SAME FUSE THAT IS LABLED FOR SOMETHING ELSE,
If you remove the top plastic cover, there should be a flange bolt which holds a spring connected to the shift lever. Be careful with the over-drive button so you don't rip out the wires during disassembly. Loosen that flange nut, remove the spring, and lift off the bottom half of the shift knob.
Now you can remove the two screws at the front of the plastic shift assembly cover to replace it with your new one. Reassembly is reverse procedure---take your time and don't force---the plastic is like those stupid map pockets that shatter when torqued!
