    Have done some further analysis now - I have a business journey I take quite regularly which is a round trip of about 500 miles (mixed driving, combination of motorway/A road/rural). Last time I did...

    Just to update on this issue, I've just had my second fan module replaced.

    I had it done last year under the original recall (dealer didn't replace at first, as per my original posts in this...

    Completely agree on the BLIS - I find it really useful once I'd got used to it. Not too intrusive but positioning of the internal indicators make it noticeable during motorway driving. Have had the...

    Just to update on previous post, I had the upgrade done earlier this week (as the car had to go in anyway for the auxiliary belt tensioner safety recall).

    Will take the car for a more serious...

    Although in the UK if you got the dealer to match the fronts to the backs you'd be breaking the law (and the police have got firmer recently in pulling people for this).

    Polestar performance upgrade

    Had a search but couldn't find anything, so thought I'd post instead.

    Have been thinking about getting the Polestar performance upgrade on my XC70 D5 (2009MY). Not that it's any slouch at the...

    Not sure whether this was in reply to my original post, but why would I want to pay to have it replaced? Either I have a faulty fan module in which case I would have had it replaced for free, or (as...

    What the dealer told me on the day I took the car in was that it was only certain fan modules affected, but they needed to recall all cars to check which fan module was on the car as apparently...

    I presume it will be relevant for all countries, as UK is definitely affected.

    Volvo told me about the recall last week when my car was booked in to have the subframe work done. They checked it...

    I now have a non-creaking XC70 [thumbup]

    Just got it back from the dealers today, after 5 days of repairs. Drove it for about 120km today, with some light off-road, and not a squeak - very happy...

    Thanks Lotus. I've mentioned 17438 to them and they are getting the relevant parts for this (along with 18838 and 17644). I hadn't mentioned 17640 as I am getting a creaking/squeaking rather than a...

    I'm not sure about aftermarket prices as my XC70 already had them on when I bought it - as a factory fit option I think they are around Aus$900-1,000.

    I haven't noticed ours rattling at all - in fact, it was only after reading this thread that I realised we had one! I had wondered why there was a bit of plastic sticking out by the windscreen, so...

    Just to follow up on this point, I've had a couple of instances with this, but the reminder has started once the car moves:

    1) On Sunday I was out with the family and we parked in a car park, but...

    Nice one, hope you'll be very happy with it.

    Regarding your gripe of the windows not dispersing water, this may be a bit too late anyway but my XC70 has the water repellant front windows (I think...

    Thanks. This is now booked in to be fixed when my car is in to sort out the suspension creaking (see other thread), so I'll post back if it does sort the problem.

    Just to update, I spoke to my dealer this morning. He asked if I could email details of the problem, and the bulletin references, to him, which I did. He rang me back 10 minutes later - apparently...

    Thanks for the advice, that's good to know. I'm always very courteous when I speak to the dealer, but equally I won't be brushed off so hopefully I'll get the right result.

    Water ingress through tailgate

    I've only had my XC70 a week, but one night we had very heavy rain. The next morning, I needed to put something in the boot before setting off - but when I opened the tailgate water started dripping...

    Hi folks

    First-time poster here, just picked up an 8-month old XC70 D5 Ocean Race a week ago and this thread seems very relevant. First impressions are a lovely car, but I've noticed the...
