I have tried to replace my light bulb on my 96 850 volvo headlamp.there seems to be some sort of clip but its barely visible.Changing bulbs should be easy but there is a load of bits in the way,would it be possible i reach the bulb by removing the headlamp lense?Or would i remove the bulb from behind like on a normal car?

Headlamp bulb replacment


  • First open the hood.
  • Now right behind the head light housing there are two retaining clips. They both pull strait up and out.
  • Now pull the entire housing out.
  • Push the clip down on the connector and remove it.
  • These are high voltage lights. Wear gloves and change when cool. If you get one bit of oil from your fingers on the bulb, the bulb will blow as soon as it lights.
  • Once you have the housing out you can twist the bulb socket out of the housing.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

When you turn the headlights on everything works but the headlights. If you hold the dimmer switch in the brights will come on. When you let it go the lights go out


Have you tried to change the headlights?

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Sealed Beam NOTE: If vehicle is equipped with headlamp doors turn the headlight switch ON. Open the hood and locate the power distribution center. This center is located in the front of the left front strut tower. Remove the cover from the center and remove the Headlamp Close Relay. This will prevent the headlamp doors from closing to provide easier servicing. Turn the headlight switch to OFF, then perform this repair.
  1. Remove the headlight bezel.
  2. Unhook the spring from the headlight retaining ring if so equipped.
  3. Unscrew the retaining ring and remove it. NOTE: Do not disturb the two long aiming screws. Conventional and Halogen headlamp sealed beams units are interchangeable in pairs, but it is recommended that they not be mixed together (one halogen and one conventional). It is fine to upgrade from conventional bulbs to halogen, but do not change from halogen bulbs to conventional bulbs, especially if the vehicle came equipped with halogen bulbs.
  4. Unplug the old sealed beam from the engine electrical wiring harness.
  5. Extract the old bulb from its mounting bracket. To install:
  6. Connect the replacement bulb and install it into the receptacle (check operation of headlight before completing repair).
  7. Install the retaining ring and secure it in place with the retaining screws. Connect the spring.
  8. Install the headlight bezel.
Aero Headlamp Aero headlamp systems use replaceable halogen bulbs that are mounted in aerodynamic, molded plastic lens reflector assemblies. NOTE: Lens fogging is a normal condition and does not require service, as moisture will vent from tubes behind the lens on Aero headlamp-type system. EXCEPT PREMIER AND MONACO It may be necessary to remove the entire headlamp assembly if enough access cannot be gained otherwise.
  1. Locate and remove the wire connector behind the headlamp assembly in the engine compartment. It may be necessary to remove certain items in the engine compartment to gain access to the bulb wires.
  2. Rotate the bulb retaining ring counterclockwise 1?4 turn and remove the ring, bulb and bulb holder from the lens assembly. The bulb holder has alignment notches. NOTE: Do not touch the bulb with bare fingers or any possibly oily surface, since reduced bulb life may result! Fig. 1: To remove the light bulb, first unplug the headlight electrical connector, then . . . 86726p13.jpg
    Fig. 2: . . . remove the light bulb socket retaining ring 86726p14.jpg
    Fig. 3: Rotate the light bulb socket 1?4 turn counter-clockwise, then pull it straight out of the lens assembly 86726p15.jpg
    To install:
  3. Wearing gloves or holding the replacement bulb with a cloth rag to keep oil off of the bulb surface, insert the bulb into the rear hole of the headlamp assembly. Make certain that the alignment grooves and tabs line up, push the light bulb into the assembly until seated flush, then turn the bulb clockwise 1?4 turn.
  4. Plug the electrical light bulb wiring harness into the new light bulb. Install any items removed from the engine compartment.
PREMIER AND MONACO Unlike the other vehicles covered by this manual, the removal and installation of the headlamp bulbs in the Premier and Monaco models requires the extraction of the entire headlamp lens assembly.
  1. Remove the grille-to-headlamp assembly attaching screws.
  2. Disconnect the headlamp aiming cable from the aiming screw end.
  3. Remove the headlamp assembly attaching bolts from above and behind the lamp assembly and separate the lamp assembly from the vehicle.
  4. Unplug the headlamp wire connector. NOTE: Do not touch the bulb with bare fingers or any possibly oily surface, since reduced bulb life may result!
  5. Rotate the socket counterclockwise 1?4 turn and pull the socket from the back of the lens assembly. Fig. 4: Remove the bezel retaining screws to loosen the headlamp assembly - Premier and Monaco 86726g91.gif
    Fig. 5: Detach the headlamp wire connector - Premier and Monaco 86726g92.gif
    Fig. 6: Once the headlamp assembly has been removed from the vehicle, the various light bulbs can easily be removed - Premier and Monaco 86726g93.gif
    To install:
  6. Wearing gloves or holding the replacement bulb with a cloth rag to keep oil off of the bulb surface, insert the bulb into the rear hole of the headlamp assembly. Make certain that the alignment grooves and tabs line up, push the light bulb into the assembly until seated flush, then turn the bulb clockwise 1?4 turn.
  7. Plug the headlamp wire connector back into the headlamp bulb.
  8. Install the assembly into the vehicle and secure in place with the mounting bolts.
  9. Connect the headlamp aiming cable to the aiming screw end.
  10. Install the grille-to-headlamp assembly attaching screws.

How do I replace headlight bulb for my toyota corolla 1998?


Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Grasp the headlamp electrical connector socket (with wires coming out of it) and disconnect it by pulling straight back. Pull off the black, soft rubber protective housing that surrounds the back of the headlamp housing. You will then see a spring clip securing the bulb. Push the clip in and up on an angle and it will release the bulb. Never touch the new bulb with your bare fingers, as the skin-oil you leave will greatly shorten the bulb's life. Place the new bulb assembly into the housing, push the clip in and up again, but in the opposite direction of the first angle to release it and it will lock. Then replace the black rubber housing-cover, plug the electrical connector back in, and you're in business.

S60 HEADLAMP BULB CHANGE


I have had the same problem and have managed to Fix it!!

Just behind the headlamp is a black box that contains the engine management units. You have to remove some of this box......First unclip the two clips nearest to the engine and remove the top cover of the box. Then there are another two clips one by the wing and one by the engine that will release the lower section of the box. You will need a large flat screwdriver to open the final clip at the front of the box and, with some care, you can remove the lower part of this box. The engine management units ( the two silver boxes inside the balck box) will be left in place and should be disturbed as little as possible.

When this is done you can get access to the bulb. First remove the rubber cover from the rear of the light assembly. Then you need a flat mirror so that you can see inside the headlamp to see the connector, clip and bulb. Pull off the connector to the bulb - you must do this with the bulb still in place (you will not be able to remove it with the connector still fitted). Then you have to push the clip at the top to unlatch it and allow it to hinge down away from the back of the bulb. I bent an old screwdriver to 90 degrees and filed a small notch in it to help me push the clip and unlatch it. Note which way up the bulb comes out so that you can fit the new one the same way up. I know it will only go in one way but getting it correct first time saves messing about for ages! With the new bulb fitted, push up the clip and latch it in place again. Then fit the connector and test it before you refit the rubber cover and the black box. Remember to take care when removing and refitting the black box. It does come off - honest!

Good luck

1988 Jaguar Vanden replace headlight


What you need to do is remove the 2 screws on the top bezel from inside the engine bay, then underneath the outer corner of the plastic headlamp surround there is a philips screw, (put your head under neath car near from wheel) loosen the screw, do not remove it, now the headlamp plastic bezel/surround will come free enough so you can get a philips screwdriver in through the middle of the headlamp surround, there is a chrome retaining ring holding the headlamp in place, loosen the 3 philips screws (do not remove) The retaining ring will rotate and you can slide the ring out from the outer edge of the headlamp surround. The headlamp will then come out throught the middle of the surround, disconnect the 3 pin multiplug and reverse process for install.
