    Hi guys I have a stock 2018 Volvo V40 T3 and was wondering if anyone has installed a blow off valve on theirs? I know it's located on the hoses near the turbo etc, but does anyone know the exact location and whether its a fairly straight forward install? Any help would be much appreciated...
  2. Exterior
    Hi to all, First of all thanks for anyone that can help me with this issue. Monday when entering the car, I've noticed that the vehicle lights were off. Only daytime lights were on. First i've looked at the switch tha could be in the wrong position but no, it was in "Auto". The high beams does...

    Hi! Recently bought a late 2014 V40 T2 in Rebel Blue. Really love it but sadly there were no parking sensors or Cruise Control included! I've gone to my local Volvo Specialist to get a quote for adding these on (see below) and I'm not sure if they are quoting a good deal or not! Do these...

    My car sounds much deeper and throatier on startup but then returns to quiet as rpm decreases. I can then rev it and it still sounds quiet. I have looked for a valve actuator (opens and closes depending on rpm) but could not find one. Is there any way to permanently make it louder without...

    Good evening, we have a Volvo v40 which suddenly has a tailgate which won’t open from the handle on the outside of the tailgate. When you press the catch it makes a noise but does not open the boot. When you push the button on the dash the boot opens as normal. Any help, advice or suggestions...

    Hi guys, can anyone help me with this, or have any idea what to do/what to check? Probably a windscreen replacement would fix the problem, but I'd prefer solve this by myself.😅 (2015/12 V40 D2 R-Design) Thank you!

    Hi. I have just purchased a Volvo v40 D4. It is running software 0BC2 and map version V 30.14.02. Is this the most up to date it can be? The maps seem really outdated and I cannot find clear guidance on Volvos website

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for a pre-facelift V40 and I've found two that I like. Both are speced out nicely the only difference is the engine and the production year. One (2014) has the older D2 84kw 1.6 PSA engine, and the other (2015) has the newer D2 88kw which, from what I've found...

    Hi there, I've got a 2015 V40 cc D3 that came with a 19 inch profile tyre. Although I don't take the car off-road, I do drive on roads that are not tarred which can be quite rough with this profile of tyre. What profile and type of tyre would be best for this kind of driving ? Thanks in advance

    Hi Guys, I owned a 2013 v40 t4 with Polestar. The mileage just around 70k km. Last week it’s stalled during the high way drive and just found one pistons broken. The local dealer said it needs to be replaced whole engine block plus pistons and rods due to no parts available for pistons only...
  12. Introductions
    Hi all! Just thought I'd say hello, I've just the other week picked up a 17 plate Volvo V40 D3 Nav plus R design in silver. I traded in my Lexus IS300h (2016 sport version) as I found I wasn't getting the MPG I wanted in a hybrid, and I wanted to save money in other areas. Wow, the V40 has...
  13. Volvo V40 General Discussion
    Hi, so in about a month or so I am getting my first V40, however I can’t decide which one is best for me! I normally travel a mixture of roads and only do about 8,000 to 10,000 miles per year. But I don’t know if I should go for a diesel or a petrol. I also want something with good acceleration...
