What fluid is leaking? A picture would also help.

From memory there is a little plastic nipple on the thermostat housing that the coolant reservoir hose connects to, that breaks really easily. It's tough to re-install everything there without damaging that nipple. This may be your leak. You can get a new Volvo thermostat housing with nipple relatively cheap from Volvo, just have to be really careful installing.
