    Also, if your car is a 2004 D5 surely it will be a Euro 3. That means it won’t have a dpf. Just a TWC- three way catalytic converter.

    Hi
    I’ve never had the A range faults. But that may be because you are using a generic OBD2 fault code reader and not Vida. Vida is more specific.

    You could try a leak down test on the injectors. And if you have Vida check the fuel correction value in advanced ECM menu. This will quickly let you know if you have a faulty injector.

    Itís interchangeable. I had a 1997 FWD P1 V70R which was hit in the side on a roundabout. I went to a generic Volvo breaker and picked up a new rear beam as mine was bent after the accident.
