I got a Haynes from IPD.
Its not bad but ... Volvo went paperless yrs ago and Haynes is sorta generic. Still worth having. Some things are not covered , like the AWD haldex system.
I use the Haynes book, the volvo vida software , forums and youtube.

Here is a temporary workaround until you source a VIDA set:

Example of Precision: Measure with a Micrometer, mark it with Chalk, and then cut it with an Axe.
