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

Not from my understanding of the system. The seals retain oil splash, not pressure. They should be replaced regardless, if they are leaking as the oil will eventually damage the timing components.
