Haven't seen it anywhere else though but thought I better post it just in case.
Had to replace mine last week, 160 and THAT was a second-hand unit from a scrapyard.
This was after the dealer told me it was the ignition switch and sold me one for 104.50 with fitting costs after that again, total 160. Needless to say, the switch didn't cure it so a pump was required.
I'm starting to think that NEVER again will I buy Volvo.

Default handbrake failure

Whilst failure of a handbrake is inexcusable of volvo, why do none of you leave your car in gear when parked?? That way if your handbrake does fail it shouldn't go very far!!!

Default Volvo Recall Status

For those of you worried about or in the dark over what is currently classified as a recall on this, or any vehicle for that matter, visit the VOSA website. This site details ALL current recalls for ALL vehicles. Below is a link to the specific recall notices for the Volvo V50 dating from 2004 onwards;

<<http://www.vosa.gov.uk/vosa/apps/recalls/searches/search.asp?cboStartMonth=1&cboStartYear=1980&cboEn dMonth=1&cboEndYear=2010&cboMake=VOLVO%20CAR&cboMo del=V50&cboSortOrder=rec_launch_date&cboAscDesc=AS C&PageSize=10&tx=&Search=Search>>

I hope this helps...

Question

Anyone understand the Vosa info, my 54 s40 has a Vin beginning with YV1VS but nothing listed as a recall shows this vin though most of the vin numbers shown are numbers only no letters?
No sign of a hand brake recall there either? my MOT warned of little travel left on the handbrake , might it be affected.

Hi guys, I have just bought a 2006 S40 2.0 D sport and the hand brake was quite poor so I had to have a look at the brakes and found that all the discs and pads had been replaced (I think with poor quality parts !!!), so I was looking for the hand brake adjustment and found that its a poor set up.
Found the adjuster at the hand brake lever, lifted the back wheels and tightend the adjustment till the wheels started to bind and then backed it off till free running.
I think it all works better when the discs and pads are new and the caliper is fully retracted for better results.

Exclamation Recall 2011 models

2011 C30, S40 and V50. The recall relates to potential stress cracks in the right side support member in the engine bay.

Does anyone know what this means, as in possible repairs to the vehicle. This sounds like it could be quite serious.

Anybody here heard of a current/actuall recall for the 1.8 and 2.0l petrols?

My dealership informed me, that there is an issue with my radiator fan/cooler and that it needs to be checked...

I must say at the same time: I've NEVER heard it run yet!? Even when standing in a traffic jam etc.!?

this is a catch up recall it was issued about 3 years ago , yours may have got missed somehow so they are chasing up ones which have not yet been done .
