Hi, yes, the heater core can be damaged while replacing the clutch, most likely the mechanic was trying to disconnect the hoses attached to the heater core and the core cracked at the solder on the outlet. I bought a reco unit for $300au but to fit it takes between 8 and 12 hours as the entire dashboard has to be removed to access it. I hope this helps, cheers.

06 Volvo s40 a/c works about 20 minutes, then shuts off and engine cooling fan stops at the same time. Works again after car cools down some.

Classic symptoms of evaporator freeze up. Do you have a huge puddle of water under the car after it sits for a while after turning it off? That would be the water from the melted ice. Freeze up can be caused by low refrigerant or a clogged cabin air filter that restricts airflow. Read this post on AC that blows cold then warm.

My 2004 s80 2.9 volvo has a charge prob alt new battery new this seems to last one or two weeks then click clik clik i jump it starts fine heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp please

Have you had it checked for leakage whilst off? Ask for a DC current leakage test from your battery whilst the key is removed. Leakage will result in the battery draining whilst off. If the test show a leak you will need to start/looking for electrical circuits / lights remaining on.

Can i reprogramme my key myself as i am nowhere near my garage

Dear Sir/Madam:
I'm an engineer for an Asian automaker and I just asked a coworker whose office is next door that previously worked for Kia as an engineer; and he stated that the key would have to be programmed by the scan tool that only the Kia dealers have access to. I know this wasn't probably what you wanted to hear; but at least I hope it helps you in the right direction.

How to program the volvo V 70 XC 2008 garage door opener

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.
