Answer 1
There is a technical service bulletin out for this problem. You should take it to an experienced Volvo independent shop or to the dealer to repair this problem. Refer them to TSB : Retailer Technical Journal 14545 Water intrusion into passenger compartment S40 / V50 Date: 10-7-2008 Reference: VIDA It's about a badly sealed area. They should know what to do, the TSB explains it. It's a common problem on S40-V50. Zee -

You are welcome. It shouldn't. There are few panels needs to come off, some plastic retainers need to be changed and usually clear sealer material need to be applied. It really depends on the location, first they need to check. If you have an extended warranty try to submit a claim to them. Zee -
