The bulb in the halogen headlamp, reversing lamp and rear fog lamp can be replaced by the driver.
The bulb in the halogen headlamp can be replaced without the help of a workshop, but the plastic cover over the headlamp must be removed before a bulb can be replaced.
Press down the pins into the plastic cover's four clips using a screwdriver or similar and lift away the cover.
Points to remember when the cover is refitted:
- The pin in the clip needs to be pressed back fully before the clip is refitted in the cover.
- When the cover is refitted, the pin must be pressed in until the end surface is level with the surface of the clip.
The reversing lamp bulb and the rear fog lamp bulb can be replaced without assistance from a workshop.
Contact a workshop1 if there is a fault in bulbs other than the bulbs in the halogen headlamps, the reversing lamp bulb or the rear fog lamp bulb. If a fault occurs in LED2 lamps, the entire lamp unit usually must be replaced.
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.
