18. 7. 2019 In Misc


Volvo will announce in the near future a recall for 507,354 vehicles of various models. The reason is a possible overheating and subsequent deformation of the plastic intake manifold. Deformation may have a negative effect on engine operation.

The problem is indicated by the check engine light on, engine shutdown or power loss. In the worst case, a localized fire in the engine compartment may occur.

Affected are the following models:



Since the repair method will vary depending on the model and engine type, this recall with the code “R-29939” is only the initial information for the owners about a possible defect and its symptoms. Specific measures will be announced later this year in six separate recalls. We’ll keep you informed about all of them as soon as they appear in the EU Rapex or the UK DVSA systems.

Update 19/7/19: Rapex has just released more information about the issue: “In certain driving conditions, the EGR cooling circuit may not be robust enough. As a result, an unexpected amount of soot may be generated, leading to increased risk of a fire in the engine compartment.” Check out the specific models in our Volvo Archive.

Note: The production periods in this article are different from the Rapex data. Please contact your nearest authorized dealer to verify if your vehicle is affected by this recall > https://car-recalls.eu/vin-check-recalls/volvo-uk-locate-a-dealer/

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.
