Just curious...does the 2009 S40 standard radio system have separate receivers for FM and AM? My AM reception started to get worse and the dealer is ordering a new receiver, said that there was an internal fault.

Good thing it's still under warranty...my guess is that the Volvo electronics are expensive.

IIRC they're separate ... My AM died completely (FM was still fine) and my warranty repair receipt says "AM module" only. This was on my '08 S40 w/ premium audio.

OK, so they replaced the AM unit and the reception is still getting worse. Any ideas? Is there something else that tends to go wrong on these cars? In all honesty I think the dealer is a bit clueless on this...

On the S80 there is an anteanea connection inside the C pillar that corrodes. It is common on the 80, IIRC the 40 has the same multimedia antenea?
