    Most of the cost is the labor, you're really best off to replace it with a
    new one.

    Because this is a common problem, and not just with 850s.

    Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.

    i had same problem in the uk, small leak took about a week to go down,
    had it done localy new heat exchanger, £500.00 and took about 6 hours
    to do, btw NOT done at a volvo garage, they wanted £1600.00 !

    worth having done, even if it is not very hot in the uk!
    ps: not worth repairing old unit.
