This thread tells you where to find the relay and how to resolder the joints and change the capacitors in the relay. You can avoid buing the expensive Volvo fuel pump relay if you follow the instructions here!

Volvo 850 Sunroof Headliner Repair

My sunroof shade headliner material had come unglued to the point where it just hung down and hit me in the head if I closed the sunroof shade.
