Default Rear wheel play and clunk with handbrake / e-brake on

Hi brickers,

Unsure whether this is just a #Volvothings, or if something is wrong.

240 sedan with all new rear poly bushings, adj torque rods, panhard bar etc. The bushings were all tightened with the car at ride height.

Handbrake/e-brake cables are adjusted properly and stop the car without excessive lever travel

With car on stands and handbrake on, you can rotate the rear wheels a small amount each way and they clunk at each end.

The same noise can be heard with an aggressive downshift or when reversing from a stop (the noise seems to transmit through the tailshaft making a 'ting' noise).

There is minimal play in tailshaft when handbrake is on

Any ideas?

Chris

That part is normal. At rest, the ends of the parking shoes are both against the "stop". When you pull the handle, the shoes are spread until they contact the drum. There is now a gap between the shoes and the stop. The drum/shoe/shoe assembly will rotate until one of the shoes contacts the stop, and you... stop.

I would say that's a different noise, as the shoes aren't doing anything unless the handle is pulled.

How are the driveline components? Stuff like the ujoints and support bearing? Also make sure the rear axle is full of oil.
