Just received my official recall notice from Volvo on Saturday. <P>Darell covers most of the details accurately in his post. The only thing I might add is that Vovlo calls this "Recall Campaign 104A". They advise us to contact our authorized Volvo Retailer to schedule an appointment & the procedure will be completed at no cost and will take approximately 1/2 hour.<P>- Rob<P>

I haven't actually received my official notice yet. But as usual, I have plenty of little things I need to see the dealer about, so it won't be long before I'm in there to have this done as well.<P>- Darell
