    Where is the Turn signal socket

  • Anonymous Apr 01, 2014

    I read that a fast turn signal is usually a bad bulb so I started there and changed them but it is still fast. Does any one no what I should do next?

Ok this is what you do,unplug the two vaccum hoses at the back of the air filter box, pull up the air filter box,dont worry it wont break,give it a quick tug upwards on the four corners,now you can get enough room to change the directionals.NOTE: changing bulbs would not solve your problem because after a couple of weeks or so you will get that turn signal warning again,your best bet is to change the turn signal socket (its about $15.00) at the dealer.,you get the new socket and bulb all in one,do both sides if you can afford it because after a couple months the other side also goes.

Just twist the entire bulb connector (with bulb still intact) counter clockwise about 1/2 a turn and pull out- it should come out. You access this under the hood, and there may be a need to remove items blocking it. These connectors tend to break if older, the replacement part number is: W0133-1895431 for 2001 - 2004 models. Should cost about $13 at the dealer. I broke mine on my first attempt to remove it. Hard to twist, a little shot of WD 40 or silicoln can help.

I don't know much about Volvos, but on most vechiles there are two screws on the lens you unscrew to take off. Or, right behind the light, you see the wires going into the unit, grab the rubber piece that goes into the unit and see if you can turn it counter clockwise. If so, gently pull out and change your bulb. Not, this soultion dosn't work for headlights.

How do i change the headlight bulb on my volvo s60

To remove a defective bulb:

  • Switch off the ignition.
  • Open the hood.
  • Remove the plastic cover over the bulb (1) by turning it counterclockwise.
  • Remove the connector (2).
  • Loosen the retaining spring (3) by first moving it to the right and then moving it down, out of the way.
  • Pull out the defective bulb. Note the position of the guide lug on the base of the bulb (4).

To install a new bulb:

  • Insert the new bulb, without touching the glass, with the guide lug upward (1). The bulb will only seat properly in this position.
  • Move the retaining spring up and push it slightly to the left until it seats properly (2).
  • Press the connector into place on the bulb (3).
  • Reinstall the plastic cover and turn it clockwise until it is correctly in place (4). "TOP" must be upward.

Need to change left front turn single whole ***. come out?

  1. Go to the front of the car and open the hood. Locate the two screws that mount the headlight assembly to the front of the vehicle. The screws are on top of the assembly at both ends. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws. Pull the headlight assembly straight off of the Intrepid.
  2. Locate the turn signal electrical connector at the outer side of the headlight assembly. There is a thick wire coming out of it. Turn the electrical bulb socket counterclockwise to take it out of the headlight assembly.
  3. Pull the turn signal bulb straight out of the electrical socket.
  4. Push in a new turn signal bulb. Reinstall the electrical socket with the new bulb in it to the headlight assembly. Turn the socket clockwise until it is tight. Push the headlight assembly back in place on the car and use and screwdriver to put the mounting screws back in.

How do I change a headlight bulb in a S60 60

Bulb is an H7 55w - price depends on brand (Hella or Sylvania Silver Star much higher than standard Sylvania). To change, open hood and look for round plastic cover over back of headlight. It's about the diameter of a big orange. Turn to remove. Remove black plastic connector (2 wires) from the bulb BEFORE you remove the spring holding the bulb in. New bulb goes in with the small square tab pointing up. Don't touch the glass part of bulb with your hands - your body oil will cause it to fail sooner. Getting the spring back on can take some effort. Then reconnect wire. And be sure to put the plastic cover back on.

Signal bulb on 2003 buick regal

To change front turn signal –
open the hood; look in back of headlight; two white clips; pull straight up, and then whole headlight comes out including turn signal; it is all one unit; remove rubber cover, then you take bulb out of unit. Mechanism that bulb fits in will need to be turned clockwise (looking from the front) and pulled to get it out of the larger unit holding all lights. Be sure and put rubber cover back on before re-inserting the two white clips.

2001 S60 Right Turn Signal Blinks Rapidly compared to Left Signal

Gregg -

I had the same problem. It was a defective lamp socket on the driver's left side, Volvo Part Number 8662985. Costs me $11.24 to replace the lamp socket, which included the bulb. If you've already replaced the bulbs yourself, you will find replacing the socket pretty easy, just use a thin flathead screwdriver to delicately pry off the metal retainer clip which holds the lamp socket in place, as you'll need to reinstall the existing metal retainer clip once you've replaced the lamp socket. Two minute job.

Front turn signal 1990 Buick Century

Hi Angela, what you need to do is look under the hood and basically locate the backside of the light that your wanting to change the bulb in. You'll see a wiring harness going to that area. Give the plug a twist and pull the old bulb out.

Blinker lights are rapid

I assumer you're getting a a "check left turn signal" error message too? The rapid flash is the car's way of letting you know you've got a bulb out. The front bulbs can be tricky since they're double filament. If one filament is out the light may look dim. Set the hazards on and inspect. Last time this happened to me on my 2001 S60, the bulb was fine and the socket was flaky. You may need to clean the contacts and check the resistance from the plug to the socket. Mine is working now - for the time being. I hope it's not your front bulb because you have to remove the air filter to get to it. Good luck!
