Hello Jim...If the seat controllers for the S40 are like the C70 you can try this...There is a micro switch on the hinge part of the seat
where the seat back and bottom meet. Just inside the hinge point. There is a spring attached to a metal plate.The spring comes off because one of the tabs holding it breaks. A lot of times you can reach under there and roll the metal plate and get the seat to move back.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

Poorly electrics on volvo s40 after valet - what do I do

Check your fuses, if all are operational make sure they a seated properly. We have this type of problem, but live on a dirt road and the vibrations sometimes unseat the fuses. An easy way to check is to see if these problems go away if; when the car is running you give the fuse panel, under the glove box, a solid whack with your open hand. This is a temporary fix we utilize three of four times a year.

Do I require any special tools to remove the front passenger seat of a 2005 Volvo S40 please? The mountings seem to be hidden by plastic covers and I can't see away of removing these? Presumably they pull...

There may just be one screw that holds, one end of the cover, then you can slide it off. But you will have to bend over backwards.
The fixings may be star bits, but other than that, just regular bolts and nuts.
Hope that helps.
