Volvo v40 p ref radio says code where do i get

Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code.

So you can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorised dealership.Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car..

Volvo S40 :clutch pedal spring

The spring broke on my S40 clutch pedal too.
The old spring looks like a modified volvo part since none of the S40 clutch pedal springs at Volvo spares looks exactly the same as the one that broke. The one that broke looks similar to the replacement part that I bought, but one can clearly see that the old one was cut shorter at the other end and bent over to make it fit onto the clutch pedal mechanism. This is absolutely pathetic. I am taking it to Volvo to fix their rubbish themselves - and then they are still going to charge me R750 ($100) to replace a stupid spring! By the way, Volvo always wants the vehicle VIN number when buying spares because some of their cars (of the same year and model) use different parts - CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS! By the way, I am replacing the spring to pull the pedal all the way back - otherwise if I start the car in the mornings then the pedal is nearly on the floor when the car starts moving. If I pull the pedal back with my foot , then all is back to normal. I am scared that I may have no clutch after some time - so I will rather replace it.

Right front(passenger side) of the oil pan. It is inside a black plastic canister that you have to unscrew to change the element.

Dealership says axle needs to be replaced

Not unless you want to die in a head on smash with a truck.

If front suspension seizes then you will swerve to one side , you may hit the sidewalk or the truck , take your pick

Volvo v40 stalling when idling

If the car shakes and stalls at lights stop signs etc. I would check the egr ( exhaust recirculator valve) first this valve should open when in driving mode and close immediately when engine comes back to idle. to check this find the valve on the intake manifold ( looks like a mushroom) remove vaccuum line and plug hose drive the car and see if it fixes the problem. If it does get one from local parts store. Most brands such as standard are universal and come with baffles that must be installed. do not leave the valve disconnected the engine will "ping" when driving forcing you to buy higher octane gas. It is also illegal to remove this unit for emission reasons.
