Bulb replacement

Lamp types vary depending on model and equipment level. If a bulb1 breaks, it can be replaced according to the method described in the Owner's Manual.

Contact a workshop2 if faults occur in lamps other than bulbs.

If a fault occurs in LED3 lamps, the entire lamp unit usually must be replaced.


For information about bulbs not covered in this Owner's Manual, contact a Volvo dealer or a certified Volvo service technician.


The car's electrical system must be in ignition position 0 when replacing bulbs.


Never touch the glass part of the bulbs with your fingers. Grease from your fingers is vaporised by the heat, coating the reflector and then causing damage.


If an error message remains after the broken bulb has been replaced then we recommend visiting an authorised Volvo workshop.


Outside lighting such as headlamps and rear lamps may temporarily have condensation on the inside of the lens. This is normal, all exterior lighting is designed to withstand this. Condensation is normally vented out of the lamp housing when the lamp has been switched on for a time.
  1. 1 Some cars have no bulbs.
  2. 2 An authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
  3. 3 LED (Light Emitting Diode)
