Remove air intake hose, floor the throttle and prop at wide open throttle so will not close during cleaning, soak end of clean shop towel with carb cleaner and reach in to clean the bore as far as you can reach, can also use clean toothbrush for tighter areas, if has air flow meter in the way can unbolt and clean then reinstall with new gasket or use spray cleaner that will not effect the meter. Go to parts store for correct cleaner for this operation. Reassemble and drive.
Thank you so much for your reply. That doesn't sound too hard. I probably won't be attempting it as I have found more serious issues. Wow! I had no idea the lengths companies will go to, to not fix your warrenty problems correctly. I see their point though. They have to fallow their own set of rules to be reimbursed. Not a good situation for the consumer...... I'll think twice before purchasing another volvo. I still love them tho!
