SOURCE: how to remove front door
Pop the grab handle cover off, two different styles.
1. With a slot under the grab handle, take a small screw driver off and gently push up, it should just pop out.
2. Simple cover that can be separated with a bone tool or similar so you don't chip the cover piece.
Behind that you will find two Torx 25 screws, Take those out.
Around the edge of the panel should be around 8 plastic rivet type of thing.
Again...two different styles.
1. With center pins that blend in perfectly with the rivet. Should be about 3/32nds diameter. Push the center in and the rivet deals should pop out. Be sure not to lose the center piece...easy to lose.
2. Same deal but with a larger center pin.
Take the plastic triangle piece near the upper right hand area as facing the panel.
Pull bottom away from door and up to release from top section of door.
Careful removing the cable for the door lock release, and remove the connectors from the tweeter and driver's door module.

Simply hold down the button you want to use (there are 3 for up to 3 different garage doors) until the light flashes and keep holding it down. Now place the garage door opener up near the sun visor and hold it's button down until the light on the on button you are programming flashes. It is now programed. The other 2 are done the same way. Good luck. It took me a while to find the info, it's not in any Volvo manuals I could find.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door.. It sounds like the linkage connecting to the outside handle may have come off or broken

I had a similar problem w recently bought 2003 S80.Several points: 1) Access your locking selonoid through the trunk interior panel ... loosen a few hex bolts and slide out for maintenance; 2) I fixed my lock by simply using light teflon-based oil (like for bike chains). I exercised it a few times and it works beautifully; 3) Not sure on your model, but gas door on the '03 unlocks when you push the associated release button under the headlight control switch. It is not designed to unlock w the key (again, check owners manual for your year). Hope this helps. master_pre08-04-2007, 09:35 AMYeah, the fuel door on my 2000 S80 is connected with the door locks. In order for it to open you have to unlock all the doors to the car. Sssnake08-14-2007, 03:39 PM Thanks Guys,
I removed the locking mechanism and applied a little silicon graphite and now it works like a charm.
