Volvo Drive-E Front O2 failure

Tech Tip
2015 Volvo XC60 T5 2.0L (40 B4204T11) 6-spd (TF-80SC AWD)

This has been getting to be a very common failure of the Front O2 sensor causing lean codes on these 2.0 T5 and T6 engines (Turbocharged and Super/Turbocharged). The key to getting it to act up is by free-revving the engine for a minute or two and then letting it come back down to idle. When idling again the fuel trims will rise up to 30-50% showing dead lean but the rear o2(s) will spike up to .95-1.0V showing dead rich. 

Attached is a screen capture showing the issue. 

Hope this helps someone out there!
