Default AW71 Shifter Linkage Question

My brother called me and said the transmission wasn't working right (1990 240, wagon). He said "It stays in drive, no matter what gear I put it in".

I got under the car and snapped a few pics (attached). It is obvious that I need to replace the bushings - but what else do I need? Are there any metal pieces that are snapped/bent?

Here is a link to a diagram of the assembly.

Right now I have these items in my cart: 39, 42, 43, 44, 47, and 48

Yes, the end is broken off. You need a replacement linkage.

So part #39, "Control Rod", is what I need?

No. Look closer at your pictures. It is part # 41 that has rusted to the point it fell apart. That L shaped part at the end allows the adjustment sleeve to turn in order to change the length of the overall linkage. It has fallen off the adjustment sleeve.

Although the picture is accurate, the part number is not and you will need Volvo part number 381825 if you plan on buying a new one.

Damn that piece is expensive. I guess it's time for a PNP run

I agree with that approach. But save the old one in your junk box.

When it happened to me it was my daughter's car stuck in a dorm parking lot with the linkage jammed into the pavement. A trip home and back to grab the linkage from another car, and then later repaired hers by (re)peening the rivet. Of course I blamed it all on letting the bushings go and ignoring the slop. This was on a 91 in '04, so my fix has held up for almost 10 years now.

Haven't really looked at the part number question, but I do notice the OP refers to these transmissions as AW-71, which I thought were for the turbos. I can see 03-70 peeking out of the nameplate.

Thanks for the info Art. I will save the old one in case. Looking for a used one on the forums right now.

And you are correct - it is an AW70, not AW71 (what is the difference, anyway?)

Doubt very much there's a difference in the linkage... but also (and the reason for the comment) I have no explanation why the parts drawings all show the adjuster at the shifter end and we know better than that. 381825 is what I show for the thing you need? Eric got me thinking... something I'm not used to doing late at night.

Yes that is what I need. I am talking to a few forum folks about getting a nice used one.

I see no attached pictures. This happened to me Sunday. Found one at a local used auto parts emporium. Will rebuild mine.

The same thing just happened to me. I'm hoping to pull a part today, but if they don't have it, what do I do? It seems to be a discontinued part. Please help.

Hi Eric,

I'm dealing with this issue right now. As I posted over at the brickboard, I happen to have a NOS adjuster sleeve part # 381841 as depicted in the parts diagram above. To me it looks identical to part 381825 which as you indicate is the correct part for a '93 240 with B230F - as is my car. Part 381841 appears to be compatible with the AW70, however, but on 6 cyl. diesel engines - D24 specifically. Do you know why if both part numbers correspond with the AW70 transmission, why the engine distinction matters? Are they not interchangeable if both are intended as a linkage for the same transmission? Can you confirm that they are not compatible?

My car is currently laid up at a general mechanic in the city where this breakdown occurred. I'm concerned being non-volvo specific they may not be familiar with much on the car, and thus could result in a bigger bill. I'd have tried to fix it myself had this happened in the driveway .... but ....

Thanks for your help!
