  1. Tyre Pressure Sensors

    Wheels, Tires, and Suspension
    Great thread guys...! Especially the first appearance of the term ‘triple point’ wrt gases.
  2. Dead rat in the aircon?

    Interior
    Hi All. Ghastly sickly ‘dead rat’ smell in the cabin on start up. Disperses in a couple of mins. Might be linked to the air-con or the heated front seats. Anyone else experienced this...? Thanks.
  3. Service costs

    Engine and Technical
    Although not a feature of the service, I was told “Volvo recommend replacing the brake fluid after two years”.
  4. Service costs

    Engine and Technical
    Many thanks for these comments. In the end the bill exceeded £700 which included two new tyres and brake fluid replacement. Also some system of ensuring all the oil is drained from the system before refilling.
  5. Oil Level Not Available 2.0 D2

    Engine and Technical
    Also, the car has to stand for a while before the oil level will register.
  6. Service costs

    Engine and Technical
    Hi Everyone, Over £400 for a 28k miles/2 year main dealer service on a MY17 V40 T2 R des. Does that sound about right? My past experience of the dealer has been very good. Thanks.
  7. Oil warning

    Engine and Technical
    Thank you RS3100 for such an informative reply. I topped up with ~100ml, suggesting the level had not fallen much. Thanks too for the link to the thread. I had not realised that ‘over filled’ and ‘critical’ messages were also programmed into the system. A graduated scale would be far more...
  8. Oil warning

    Engine and Technical
    Thank you LenOnd. It’s a petrol T2Rdesign. I’ll add the oil carefully and as you describe. Best wishes. C
  9. Oil warning

    Engine and Technical
    Hi Guys, Sod’s Law: Sunday with the prospect of a long drive tomorrow and the onboard HAL computer indicates low oil level. My local dealer has in the past suggested topping up is a critical business and should be carried out by the dealer. What do you think? Surely it’s possible to add...
  10. Engine coolant warning

    Engine and Technical
    Final verdict: Volvo dealership pressure tested the system and found no faults. Coolant topped up and all fine. So far....
  11. Engine coolant warning

    Engine and Technical
    Hi guys, Low coolant level warning today from MY17 V40. Topped up with (distilled) water as per Volvo advice. Engine appears to be running a little warmer than normal although coolant level remains constant. Booked in to dealership next week. Any ideas? I thought perhaps the water pump. I...
  12. Bumper damage

    Exterior
    Hi Everyone, Just put a small dent into the grey plastic trim below the rear bumper (image here). Is it possible to repair plastic? A Volvo body shop job costing £££’s. Thank you.
  13. Slight argument with fence!

    Exterior
    Thanks Graham. I’m trying to live with it! Ridiculous how such a trivial thing can consume one’s thoughts!
  14. Slight argument with fence!

    Exterior
    Hi everyone. Just run into the wooden garden fence. Mercifully little damage except for scraping off a little of the shiny gloss covering to the plastic front section just below the number plate. It’s hardly noticeable but very annoying! Is there an easy way to replace the black gloss? It’s...
  15. Rear fog light malfunction

    Engine and Technical
    Really impressive technical knowledge Busby!
  16. Burning smell - clutch?

    Engine and Technical
    Thanks guys. I shall avoid this manoeuvre in the future. Just hoping no permanent damage was done.
  17. Burning smell - clutch?

    Engine and Technical
    Thanks wizzy. I'm assuming no adverse effects. I was surprised that what seemed to me to fall within 'reasonable use' produced this effect.
  18. Burning smell - clutch?

    Engine and Technical
    Hi Everyone, I have a V40 T2R 5k miles: today I was manouvering in reverse up a relatively steep slope to park, holding the car 'on the clutch' for short periods. Once parked there was a strong (and alarming) burning smell which I assumed was from the clutch plates. Later the car drove as...
  19. Oil

    Engine and Technical
    Many thanks for your reassurance chiptivo. I'm 'generation dipstick' as you can tell.
  20. Oil

    Engine and Technical
    Hi Everyone, the Volvo dealership has recommended against purchasing engine oil (0W20) as this very rarely needs topping up and should be done by the dealer if necessary. Apparently correct oil level is critical and adjustments are computer assisted. Any thoughts? Thank you.
