Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site.

The fuel filter hangs from a bracket under the rear passenger side floor.

Release the fuel pressure before starting to replace the filter. The easiest way to do this is to pull the fuel pump fuse while the engine is running. The engine stops with no fuel pressure left in the pipe. When you see the filter you will see it is an easy job to replace it.
the safeties box
Is this the fuse box?

When you were working under the steering wheel did you accidentally move the plastic covers around the steering wheel? If the covers are touching the steering wheel this will tend to make it harder to turn and will make a noise as the wheel scrapes over the plastic.

Is there enough fluid in the steering reservoir? Any sign of a fluid leak on the steering?
