Hi there, I have a problem with the V40 ventilation/air conditioning where exhaust smoke from other vehicles enters the car I'm driving now, it's getting worst each day, I think if I don't do something aboutt it I may be dead while driving. Kindly help me ! Thanks. Other than that what is the mileage that requires the change of the timing belt and also what happens if I do not calibrate the computer system for each service ? Will it be damaging to the car ?

The V40's have a pollen filter in the system.I would reccomend keeping the recirc button pushed in and it cuts off the outside air from comming inside the car.That should stop the emissions from coming inside your car.
