it would be great if you could film a video and upload it to YouTube or something like that, I would use a mechanic's stethoscope or a long screwdriver and touch it to different places and then push the handle against the flap of your ear closing out of your ear to use it as a stethoscope to pinpoint the noise and make sure it's not a wheel bearing or something like that.Absolutely make sure the fluid levels are full involve the differential if it has separate differential fluid which would be indicated by a fill plug there, and also in the main transmission, unfortunately if you've got internal transmission noise it probably just means you need to replace the transmission though.

My name is***** recently purchased a 2012 Volvo XC90 Exec. Mileage is 33,000 km. It has 2 problems as follows. a "grinding noise" If you can imagine what a dodgy bearing would sound like then this sound is something like that. ) sounds something like a dodgy bearing. It only occurs when driving at low speeds - around 35 or 40km/h. and around 1500 to 2000 revs. It's louder when the engine is under load i.e. going up hill. The noise stops when the foot is taken off the accelerator. Also heard most clearly under gently acceleration. We have taken it to 2 repairers. 80% certainty said it was only a front right hand side wheel bearing. But he recommended getting a second opinion. This was not repaired. The second said it was dealer said picked it straight away - upper engine engine torque rod. This was replaced but same noise remained. They want to 1 days labour to only possibly identify. the seems to be an inch to 2 inches "sclack" in the steering whee.. So it seems to need constant correcting on corners. rep 100KM going around the corner it needs constant correcting. on the steering wheel. Sorry Edward, sent without editing by mistake.
