SOURCE: oil filter
front center of eng under hood (little more to pass side)must remove air intake tube and then you can see the top that screws off with a special large socket (buy it before you start)about 10" down then its a cartridge inside(its easy once you figure it out)

SOURCE: VOLVO S40 VVT VALVE
Very easy to swap the vvt valve,but that will not guarantee to rectify the problem,more than likely it will be the vvt pulley/timing unit,this will involve the timing belt coming off.
The vvt valve is located under the upper timing cover,remove the cover and you will see the valve situated on top of the head,undo the connector and remove the 4 bolts and the valve will come off,alittle bit of oil will come out on removal.
remove gasket and ensure the area is clean.
Re-fitting is opposite procedure,ensure a new gasket is fitted.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Oil Leaking into the exhaust
hi there, there are chemicals on the market that will soften up the seals but these take time to work i would suggest changing the turbo, you will also have to remove the oil from the exhaust system this can be done with other chemicals like an upper cylinder cleaner feed directly in to the air intake but only after the turbo has be fixed
