Most likely the sunroof drains are clogged. It happened to mine, the floormats and floors were soaked, especially behind the drivers side. Volvo wanted to charge me $550 to clear them out and dry out the floors. Instead I took it home, rolled down the windows, parked it in the sun and let it dry out. Then I found a mechanic who blew out the drains with compressed air for only $20. He had originally quoted me $50-100, but ended up doing it for less. He said the two back drains are clogged. You can try sticking a small flexible wire down the front two yourself, then pour water down to see if it drains properly out the bottom of the car. When I looked I didn't see the two back sunroof drains, but my mechanic said they were clogged with leaves, you might be able to clear these yourself too. I would have never guessed that it was the sunroof causing this, because you don't see the water leak around the sunroof, you only see the water backing up on the floor. Don't take it to the dealership, it's a simple job and they will rip you off.

Water leaking in by passenger side!!!!!!


Most likely the sunroof drains are clogged. It happened to mine (and my friend who has the same car), the floormats and floors were soaked, especially behind the drivers side. Volvo wanted to charge me $550 to clear them out and dry out the floors. Instead I took it home, rolled down the windows, parked it in the sun and let it dry out. Then I found a mechanic who blew out the drains with compressed air for only $20. He had originally quoted me $50-100, but ended up doing it for less. He said the two back drains were clogged. You can try sticking a small flexible wire down the front two yourself, then pour water down to see if it drains properly out the bottom of the car. When I looked I didn't see the two back sunroof drains (they are smaller), but my mechanic said they were clogged with leaves, you might be able to clear these yourself too. I would have never guessed that it was the sunroof causing this, because you don't see the water leak around the sunroof, you only see the water backing up on the floor. It has to do with the way the sunroof drains drain down the side panels of your car. Don't take it to the dealership, it's a simple job and they will rip you off.

Recently the carpet behind the driver's seat has been soaked after a rain. It doesn't matter if the car is moving or parked, if the heat is on or not. The water seems to be coming out the vent under the...


This would be water from the heating unit beneath the seat. Somehow this has gotten damaged. Consequently engine cooling system water now is leaking onto the floor and into the carpet. You mave have to remove the seat entirely, or it may be possible to access the heater and remove it for repair, without removing the seat.

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.

Big puddle of water keeps accumalting on floor behind passenger seat - Volvo S 40 - what is it and is it covered by warranty


You don't say how old your car is so I can't comment on warranty, but is sounsd like either the acsess 'gromet' for the rear suspension has popped out, thats an easy fix, just buy a new one and pop it it, or the floor 'gromet' is loose. Can I make a stupid suggestion, get someone to sit tn the rear passenger seat and take it trough a car wash to see if there is any water coming in! It sounds like a quick fix though. Best wishes Dave

Cannot adjust front passenger seat on 2002 Volvo S40


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.

Where is the fuse for the radio , stereo for volvo s40 xs


Passenger compartment fuses are all behind the drivers side (left) kick panel. You should only need a #2 philips head screw driver to remove 4 or 5 screws. After you remove the screws gently pull out on the lower right corner to disengage a plastic tab. The panel then should now come out disengaging metal tabs on the upper to corners. Fuses are on the left.
