You may want to change all fluids one at a time. PS is a good start https://www.ipdusa.com/products/5743/11 ... ring-fluid

CHF 202 is compatible with CHF 11S and the same color. They can be mixed together without issues. CHF 202 is easier to find and from what Pentosin states it is Volvo approved from 2002 on.

http://www.pentosin.net/pressreleases/C ... _Guide.pdf

Note in the brochure the last line stating: "CHF 11S and CHF 202 are fully compatible and mixable. Pentosin CHF fluids should not be mixed with ATF fluids."

It isn't worth the hassles to change to ATF, as either of these two fluids for minimal additional costs will keep you on the same path moving forward which makes maintenance easier long term.
