Hi all

Our 24,000-mile '09 S80's dashboard periodically makes a loud popping noise - like, really, really, really loud! It happens especially during warmer weather, although it has occurred during cold weather. I'm sure it is some sort of plastic expansion.

It's really annoying because it's so loud and so random. I flinch every time I hear it.

Anyone else had this problem? If so, were you able to find a solution? We've tried parking with the windows cracked, using a reflective windshield cover, etc.

It has started to get a lot worse - it'll happen 2-3 times in a 15 minute drive sometimes - and I imagine it is only going to happen more as the weather gets even warmer (we live in Texas).

This happens in my 07 S60 too, i haven't found exactly where it is coming from within the dash. I will keep searching and update if I find a solution.

Wow, I've never had that happen in my car but I haven't had it for a full summer yet. I certainly hope it doesn't develop as it gets hotter outside.

Look at the gloveboxes
Volvo is notoriuos for having loose, out of adjustment gloveboxes
