How to replace the side marker/position light bulb on the driver side? I can't even get to it because i can't get the light housing off!

The Headlight Assembly is not difficult to remove but you do need to be careful NOT to pull on the Headlight Assembly and break the clips

1. Open the S60's hood and locate the pin that is behind the headlight assembly of the bulb that needs replacement. The pin has a handle on the top. Pull the pin straight out of the headlight assembly.

  • 2. Push on the back of the headlight assembly until it comes out the front of the S60. There is an electrical connection on the back of the assembly; unplug the connection.

  • 3. Press on both clamp on the assembly. The clamps are on either side. Push them in together so that the cover releases.

  • 4 Uncover the bulb by pulling on the small plastic cover that covers each bulb. Push the visible wire aside. Pull the bulb straight out.

  • 5 Push a new bulb in and push the metal wire back over it to secure the bulb in the assembly. Push the covers back on.

  • 6. Reconnect the electrical harness to the assembly and push the assembly back into place. Push the retaining pin all the way back down into place.

    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.

    How to change bulb in headligth of volvo v70

    For the RH headlight, First remove the top cover of the ECU module just behind the headlight. Then remove the middle section leaving the ECU in place. Both parts are just clipped in so should come out fairly easily. You will then be able to get access the the headlight bulb, release the spring clip at the top (using a mirror helps) and the bulb should come out.
    For the LH side remove the air filter housing.

    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.
