    NO. they will only fit early model S40/V40's
    1996-1999 (P1)-With P2 front top mounts and roll bar links
    2000 (P1.5)-with possibly different front mounts and links
    2001-early2004 (P2)-Direct fit

    They won't fit any late 2004-on S40/V50's (Gen2)

    These will fit all P2 cars, and P1's if you change the front top mounts and roll bar links.

    I have these on my car (as does judgeninja, siamblue, and I'm sure a few others) only height adjustable, not damping but for the price they are fantastic!

    Hope it helps someone!
    Hi! Thanks for that post! I do have 1998 v40. So what exactly to I need to change to fit those coilovers ? It easy to find anti roll bar links, but I can't find anywhere those top mounts, you mentioned. Do I need just mounts, or bearings and other bits? I can't find OEM stuff anywhere. What price did you paid 2y ago for mounts?

    Easiest way is to go direct to Volvo for parts. They may cost more than your local motor factors but they can get the parts correct the first time and usually within 2 days.

    I renewed the top mounts on my 2003 V40 about 2 months ago and got them direct from Volvo. Think they were about 45 each from my local dealer.

    So for those 45 quid you got just top mounts or all those bits like in a photo, I just puzzled what to write in a shopping list

    Ok.
    Go to partsforvolvos.co.uk and order:
    2x PFV904696 Front Strut Top Mount Plastic Bearing 13.20 each
    and either
    2xPFV905287 (Manual) Front Strut Top Mount 23.40 each
    or if you have an auto
    2xPFV904649 (Automatic) Front Strut Top Mount 20.93 each

    You will also need front roll bar links:
    2x PFV903845 S/V40 Series 2001 onwards Drop Link(Front) 15.26 each
    But I would suggest getting meyle heavy duty ones instead:
    2xPFV906650 S/V40 Series 2001 onwards Heavy Duty Drop Link(Front) 25.51 each (no difference in driving just last much longer!)

    The rear mountings are identical on all P1,P1.5, and P2 cars, so you don't need to change anything.

    This is exactly what I purchased to convert mine!
    Hope it helps!

    I would add on an unrelated note that the FK website is stupid as I accidentally pressed a button and cancelled my order ! Had to phone up Germany direct and ask them very politely to re-instate it as I do want my coilovers haha idiot
