I own a 2008 V50 2.0D. So far I have been very happy with the car, but lately I get the impression that something is wrong with the clutch:
-when clutch pressed I can hear a rattling noise from the clutch bearing
-the clutch does not seem to operate as smooth as it did previously
-clutch engages very late, very high pedal position
The car has only done 30.000km and I am not known for wearing clutches.
Anyone with similar problem?

Got a similar problem, when the clutch is pressed there is a rattling noise and vibration, as I release the clutch the noise all but disappears asd does the vibration. Th dealer tells me it is the flexible flywheel and it is a big job to change and as a lot of work is involved it makes sense to change the clutch at the same time. I have 74000 miles on, he also suggested "it is down to driving", I have been driving since 1965 and dones lots of miles in a few cars and have never needed a new clutch before. As I trawl these forums it occurs to me that this is a common problem and perhaps Volvo should look at the data maybe there is an inherent problem! Dealer estimate for this job 2 - 3 days and £1200. Don't suppose this helps you but it helps to moan!!!

it may be the trouble is a worn clutch fork as it sits under the thrust bearing they do wear out, but as your car has only done 30,000 km it should not be that, the other thing it can be is worn seals in your slave cylinder if it is leaking, you can just replace the seals only ,then bleed the thing, but your car may be covered by volvo check with them just in case.
