Hello all,
Last week I had a problem with my late 2015 Volvo d2 cross country, the clutch pedal wouldn鈥檛 return back to its normal position and I had to hook it back up with my foot. The car has only done 24,000 miles and is a month out of warranty 馃檨 so took it back to Volvo in Ipswich where I brought it and got quoted 拢1,700 apparently it鈥檚 the slave cylinder inside the gearbox? But after researching on this site I鈥檝e found quite a few people with the same issue, so I was wondering if I can get Volvo uk to at least pay part of the bill as it seems a design fault so was wondering what you guys on here think. I mean only 24,000 miles !!

morning! yes, its likely to be the slave, the average reply from volvo is " wow, thats never happened here"
Anyway, its a 'box out job to replace, and its likely to need the clutch and flywheel replacing due to fluid contamination. My first job was inside warranty, the next two were not, but volvo eventually picked up the bill. They asked me for around 600 quid to diagnose and my reply was simply "thats not acceptable, please go back to your manager" If youve had it from new, and always serviced it volvo will often make a reasonable contribution...
The other line of defence could be arguing you hadnt been given the opportunity to extend your warranty due to lockdowns etc and see if you can buy an additional 12 mth policy

Alas - sounds like the slave cylinder. Volvo were really unhelpful (mine was three months out of warranty), quoted 拢1800 to repair with a possible 10 per cent off of it did turn out to be the slave cylinder at fault.
I took it to my local indie specialist, who did it for just under 拢700.

Had to have the whole clutch pedal assembly changed on my 2016 V40 T3 within 2 years of owning it from new.

According to the service manager at my local Volvo dealership there was an issue with a number of V40's within a certain chassis number range where the clutch assembly inside the car became faulty, basically it was down to a poor welded joint within the clutch assembly that would cause the pedal to either feel notchy whilst pressing down or actually sticking at a certain point and wouldn't go down or return.
At first I could very slightly feel a resistant at a particular point when pressing the pedal down, this got worse over time where you could feel the notchy bit but also hear a slight click as your pressed the pedal down further.
Service manager said that ultimately the pedal would of just jammed in one position.
This might be the cause ?
Just a thought ?

This happened to mine yesterday.
Ex-lease 66 plate. Didn't quite make the return back to where it is usually.

Will monitor but as it's due it's re-call, may mention it then (or maybe when I get it back).

If I got some sort of warranty, could I claim on this at a later date?

It appears to be a common problem of V40's.
Diesel or petrol engines, in here we have both with the same clutch issue.
All cars are from 2016 or older? Could it be fixed in the latest V40's?
