Hey I am new to the site but from everything I read the PCV is a pain in the butt. Well last week I received a Recall notice for the PCV oil trap and hose. States to contact Volvo and they will replace it if you haven't paid to get it done already or the best news yet. They will give you a refund if you did have this done already.

Just wanted to let everyone know!

Now it is just a waiting game for them to give me my money. They stated about 6 weeks.

Thought you all would enjoy.

I have the Reall Notice in front of me if anyone has any questions.

Yes! PLEASE scan that and put it up here or at the very least write down any numbers that are on it so I can call and get my $ back. I had this done like 2-3 months ago. Does it say it has to have been repaired at a Volvo dealer or does it not clarify? Mine was done by a local Volvo specialist...

What model year are your s40s? I am on the phone with my volvo dealer right now and they are saying they don't see this recall for my car...

Mine is an 05 T5 AWD as well...if any of you can get the recall number info so I can get this figured out that would be greatly appreciated. I have a PEM recall, as well as an EMF? recall that they say shows up for my car, but no PCV. The dealer is an hour away so I want to get all of my recall info squared away before going so I don't have to make extra trips. Thanks!

Is there any sort of number or reference? Or at the very least a phone number that I can call? I'm planning on calling Volvo directly about my car issues anyway as the local dealer is a flake unless pushed by their daddy...

Called Volvo Customer Care. They said my car doesn't qualify based on the chassis number. That is a load of BS as my car is an 05 T5 AWD and it has had to have the PCV Oil trap and I think the hose replaced. I am going to call a higher up person if I can get through to them, let me know if any of you have the same issue...
EDIT: Just got off the phone, I guess the recall only covers specific chassis #s and my car isn't one of them. I tried to get through to someone else but the lady said they would say the same thing, so I ended that call and called right back and got someone else. She was nice and noted all of the questions and concerns, and is sending me a coupon for 30% off up to $200 that I might be able to use to get some money back from the repair, as long as the repair shop used genuine volvo parts. If I had had it done at the dealer then there might have been a chance to get it refunded completely.
I'm really good at complaining to customer support until I get the situation resolved, and even though I appreciate this lady's help I will be researching this more and calling them back, as well as contacting the highway government agency that helps oversee recalls.
I'll let you know of any updates. Hopefully all of you have the magic chassis #s and don't have to go through this bull...
