Its really easy... open the hood... looking back toward the car, its at the front of the engine, left hand side near the top... you'll see the hose coming out.. its held in with 2 large torx screws... make sure you change the rubber seal around the thermostat when you remove it.. also be aware some antifreeze will leak out.. so take proper precautions.. don't do it when the car's hot.. difficulty 1/10.. easier than an oil change.

SOURCE: want to replace signal fuse in volvo s40

i have a 98 s40. The fuses can be found internal (under the dashboard near the bonnethandle). Inside it you can find the fuse clamp and extra fuses. These can also be used for the external fusebox under the bonnet.
I have found the fuse that might be broken, but i can't replace it because it has some extra casing. It's for internal lights and the alarm.

SOURCE: maintenance of s40 volvo 2003

Volvo is a good car. if you maintain you volvo by changing the oil on time, maybe after every month according to how you drive and changing you fuel filter, using 93 grade fuel or 89. I advice you to keep your volve. do your oil change on time don't wait until three to five months before changing your oil and don't use poor fuel (87) grade. change your tranmission oil after 18 months then your volvo is yours for life.

SOURCE: location of volvo s40 2003 oil filter

It is underneath near the oil pan. Not really a filter, but the cover to the filter. Should be a black round looking thing. Remove this, and the paper filter element is inside. Be careful not to crack or damage the cover.

How to replace thermostat in 1999 volvo


Don't just change just the thermostat... change the sensor located in the thermostat housing (if your engine is overheating). The whole works is located inside the timing cover. Sockets: You'll need a 10mm for the timing cover and the 3 bolts on the thermostat cover, and an 8mm for the sensor harness bolts. Then you'll need a 3/4 open end wrench for the sensor.

Need instruction on how to replace the thermostat in my 2002 volvo s80


The thermostat is normally located in the aluminium elbow that the top radiator hose connects to. The elbow is usually held down by two bolts and it is only necessary to remove these to replace the thermostat. It may not be necessary to remove any hoses. Take care that the new thermostat is correctly located in its recess and the old gasketing has been completely removed and that the new gasket has a smear of gasket cement on it. While tightening the bolts, make sure that the elbow is seating evenly and not catching on the edge of the thermostat or you could crack the elbow.

Were is the themostat for volvo s80 situated


It depends on whether you have a 5 or 6 cylinder engine. On the 6 it's located under the timing belt cover. On the 5 it's located just in front of and to the left of the fuel injector rail. If you haven't already, register (it's free) at autozone.com. Once you've done that, look up your vehicle and then search for a thermostat. Click on the thermostat that best fits your needs and look to the right. There will be a repair manual link for step by step instructions on how to remove and install the thermostat.

Good luck!

Replaced thermostat for 2001 Volvo S40, however, car is still reading as if it were hot. Coolant also added. What could be further issue? A sensor is what the repair garage suggested. Has anyone else had...


I recently took my car in for this problem. The thermostat was replaced a year ago. This time they replaced the thermostat and the IAT (air intake temperature sensor). The thermostat was 20 and the IAT was 50, with labor it all came to $140. Most sites online that I found suggested replacing both the sensor and the thermostat at the same time. When the thermostat goes, it usually takes the sensor with it. So I'd have them replace your sensor too. Good luck.
