Sounds like heater core needs to be replaced. I have never replaced one on a foreign car, however they are bout $50 on an american car.

I think on the S80 the Dash has to come out to replace it.

Yes it sounds like the Heater core is leaking.

I would not use the Stop leak. But that is just me. It is designed to Clog things. It might clog other things as well.

Fifty bucks! I don't think so, at least not on an S80. The heat exchanger went out on mine. Same thing, coolant on the floor mats. It cost $904.36 at Smythe Volvo here in San Jose. That was in July of last year. I hope you can beat that price. In fact, I hope you can beat that price by a lot. If you do, let me know.

you can try ebay. I've seen some random s80 parts on there. Do not use leak stop. Yes it may stop it now, but most of those chemicals just dump a thick sludge like material ini there that tries to fill in the cracks and crevaces (spelling?). In the end that stuff will be stuck in there and make a mess internally.
