New Volvo Guidance -- 130S 150S Saildrives

Good day:

As an owner of two Volvo D1-30Bs, with saildrives, I have had an issue where the clutch disk packs slip and fail to engage, leading to a complete loss of power and manueverability. Apparently this is a common problem, as I have encountered other Volvo sail drive owners with identical issues

Recently, Volvo issued a service bulletin on this recommending that owers switch out the oil in these sail drives FROM ATF (automatic transmission fluid) TO SAE 15W40 motor oil.

I plan to do this at the earliest opportunity, having already paid for an expensive repair of one of the clutch disk packs (they are sold by Volvo in a standard service pack, shrink-wrapped in a single package, making it easy to get the right set of plates, discs, and seals)

Please contact your Volvo dealer for more information.

Suggestions as to how anyone got Volvo to address this under warranty are also welcome.

Thanks.
