Finding the code by counting the rectifiers can work but it is much easier to ask your friendly Volvo dealer for the code. He can find this from the Vehicle Identification Number or the serial number of the radio. It is a free service.

In the UK the dealers tend to obey the rules laid down by Volvo. If your dealer insists that you pay for this tell him you are going to contact Volvo as this is a worldwide free service.
