I did it the same way as my other Volvo's. First, have a remote pair to your car by pressing the open button and one of the keys under the mirror simultaneously, and then press the learn button on the garage door opener and press the button you chose under the mirror.

I guess I just expected it would be an obvious setting but either I’m blind or I’m just lost. Any tips?
The XC40 user manual is a bit confusing on this point. I had to do BOTH steps for Homelink pairing:

1) hold the garage door remote very close while pressing desired Homelink button
AND ALSO
2) press "Learn" button on opener, then within 30 seconds run back to car & press desired homelink button.

The manual implies you can just do step #2 if you know you have a door opener with rolling security codes (eg, if step #1 fails). That's how it worked on my older cars.

Don't know the details - but my guess is maybe since newer Homelink buttons can perform many tasks, step #1 is required to tell Homelink that it's going to be used as a "Garage Door Opener" (as opposed to light switch, gate switch, security alarm disable, etc)? EDIT: or maybe it's just an extra security step.

So.... all I need to do is find the one garage door opener (that DH has lost)? :ROFLMAO:
We had a similar problem - the previous owners of our house didn't leave us a remote at all! Fortunately, there are universal remotes out there than can be paired to a learning (rolling security code) garage door opener, without the original remote. This one worked with my LiftMaster door opener, not sure if it works with every brand:
KLIK3U-BK2 | Original Clicker® Black Universal Garage Door Remote | Chamberlain

I used this universal remote for step #1 in setting up the XC40 homelink buttons.

I still had the original garage door opener (and could find it!) I had to change the batteries, but it still worked. If you have that, it can all be done in the driver's seat, just do the first half of Burak's direction.

That depends on your garage door opener. Some of them REQUIRE the second half - that you climb up & press the "Learn" button on the opener itself.

I have a call into the dealer, but my mirror looks like the Bainbridgeisland posted but minus the buttons.
The user manual says that Homelink is an option:
686


Perhaps part of the Advanced Package? I don't see Homelink listed on my window sticker at all - but I did order the Advanced Package.

I have the advanced package, so that’s good to know. Thanks. I couldn’t find which package it was supposed to be a part of. The only thing I don’t have is the protection package premier (I have the protection package) and it’s not listed under that.
