Most of the time the "shift lock microswitch" fails. you have to remove the center console and replace the switch. The dealer will have the switch in stock it's so common. I suggest a reputable Volvo shop do the repair since there is a chance the plastic will break due to age. It's not that involved of a repair, but the plastic gets weaker as the car gets older.
If your dead set you may be able to find the instructions on either V70R.COM of BRICKBOARD.COM
hope this helps.

To gain access to the bulbs, you need to go under the bonnet (/hood) and remove the housing cover on the reverse side of the light units.
Should just be a simple clip, but make sure that it doesn't fly out of your sight;)
Relatively simple for the rears too.
Just plastic covers on the reverse side of the units, with clips that could break, if you are too rough with them.

First, try rocking the vehicle a little. If it still doesn't help, I know this sounds backwoods, but hit it in the center of the hub with a good sized hammer, and the brakes will release. This is common with mechanical handbrakes. (rear wheels only)
