Rough shifting on 2001 Volvo V70

My V70 T5 at time clunks when down shifting when I come to a stop and start from a full stop. Does not always do it but seems to happen more frequently in city driving and after the car has warmed up?

This is from the transmission, and it may be from the transmission software needing to be updated or an internal issue. When I address this type of problem, I check for diagnostic codes, check the software version and check the fluid level and condition. I then address any fault codes, update the software and top up or replace the fluid depending on it's condition. After the repairs are done, it's important that the transmission adaptation is set, this helps the computer to adapt to the transmission and make it shift smoothly.
