Re: Door will not open on 1998 V70 wagon
You have a broken latch that you will need to access from inside the car. Remove the door panel carefully and have a magnetic pickup tool handy to fish in the bottom of the door for any parts that fell to the bottom when the latch let go. To cheat, remove the door panel from the rear door too and you can see what is missing from the broken one.

If the pin is moving then you have something loose in your door that is keeping it from locking. Take the panel off the door and operate the lock and see if you can find where the problem is. Also using a silicone lubricant where the door striker is would/could help.
I would open your drivers front door there should be a label inside on the door or the door jam stating what Volvo wants the front and rear tires inflated at follow the manufacturer label inside the door for proper tire inflation.....
If the passenger door has not been opened for some weeks or months, or in icy weather, it is possible that the rubber seals around the door frame will cause the door to appear 'stuck' fast - in this case, a bit of extra force from inside the car whilst pulling on the interior door handle should cause the door to open. Failing that, if the car has electrically operated central locking, when the key fob is pressed to deactivate the central locking does the door lock on the passenger side work as expected? Try unlocking the passenger door with a key, and or pull the door lock button upwards to ensure that the lock has been deactivated. Check for blown fuses.
You might find a plastic toggle lever in the edge of the door. Your car may have a childproof lock for the front passenger door like the rear doors do. If so, it is a simple matter of moving the toggle.
I have a 2002 land rover discovery and my passenger front door won't unlock with the interior lock button on the dash or with the key fob. The only way to unlock the door is to pull the handle on the inside of the door. Is the actuator bad?
You will need to remove the door panel from the inside and look for any missing links or bent parts that are causing the problem. Use a trim tool to get the panel off. Unscrew the arm rest. Have a magnet on a telescoping wand hand to fish any parts that fell to the bottom of the door out.
