Grateful for some advice on this one.

I have a 2003 (53) S40 2.0 T Sport (not new shape). I spoke to my local dealer (Stratstone Cardiff - not impressed with them so far) yesterday about this matter and was categorically told that there have not been any recalls on my car. I really pushed this with the chap I spoke to as, according to my understanding of Bob's initial posting, my car should have been recalled, but he told me that this was definately not the case.

Can anyone help or suggest a way forward. Is the problem only with the newer shape?

Thanks,

Default hey

I would advise you to get hold of another volvo dealer and get a second opinion . Try Tollbar Twickenham Volvo 02086140000 , thats the number and I take my car there and they are really first class. It may be along way from where you live but if your car is affected they will tell you over the phone and tell you who to go to and they will send a work order to that dealer. For a dealer to not tell you about a fault like that and it turns out there is one you should complain because thats completly unacceptable.

Knocking at front is often loose or worn tie bar assembly.

I have received a letter from volvo about an outstanding technical update for my 53 plate V40, though it is diesel. I have no idea what it is about, so I gues I shall have to ring them

Look at the upper engine mount first thet always wears out and quicker on T4s. If that's ok then look at the suspension.
