I've searched and found costs for older models but not for 2015 XC70 T6. Dealer is quoting me $780 for the Serpentine belt (belt, tensioner and idler pulley) and $715 for oil trap/breather box replacement. I can understand why the belt replacement is a little more involved/time consuming, but based on search results and videos the breather box replacement looks pretty straight forward.
Am I missing something?

Yep. I payed $225 total for oil trap last year in NorCal. That price is absurd.

Thanks to both of you for the confirmation - guess I need to find a good independent shop!
Call them out on it, talk to the GM. They might offer you something for busting them. Odds are it isn't a dealer thing, it's a dishonest tech. If I tell my advisor a job pays 4 hours and it only pays 1, he sells it for 4- he doesn't know. We had a guy who would over sell labor hours. Key word there is had.

You can replace the oil trap yourself, but be sure to order the gasket with the FoMoCo part. The serpentine belt quote seems reasonable.

Mine was done at a dealer. Niello Volvo in Sacramento. They did it same day while my wife was driving through. As you can imagine, the squealing noise really freaked her out but thanks to Swedespeed, I knew what it was immediately. Wish we lived closer because their service really impressed me.
