Volvo V40 Variable Valve Timing Parts

The exhaust camshaft gear common to all V40s has been known to leak oil. The o-ring seal inside of it is the usual suspect, but Volvo doesn't offer just a replacement VVT o-ring. A used VVT gear is not recommended because the aging seal on another used one can't be considered much more trustworthy than the original.

Most folks will want to replace the gear & associated cam seals & timing equipment at the same time, both for good measure & to save labor costs down the road. But if you need a V40 VVT solenoid as well, we've got you covered. In any case, VVT replacement will require the use of a proper cam lock tool to hold the rear cams in place.
