    I wish i could be more help as i am facing the same issue, these headlights, like most others i have seen are simply held in place by a clip. the problem is that in this car it is not possible to access the screw on the clip in order to remove it, it appears to me that you must remove the assembly in oreder to get at the inside. now if only we had the insturctions to do that!

Most carsv nowadays are sealed beams meaning you have to replace the whole unit rather than just replacing a bulb i am not sure with the volvo but would assume this is the case

2006 Volkswagon Beetle, drivers side headlight, high beam not working


Instructions
    • Turn the headlight switch on and inspect the headlights. Make sure to check both low- and high-beam lights, and then note the position of the bulb in the headlight assembly. Low-beams are in the top cavity of the assembly and high-beams are in the lower cavity.
    • 2Turn off the headlight switch and then remove the keys from the ignition.
    • 3
    • Open the hood and locate the seam to the headlight assembly and the side fender. Locate the headlight assembly release lever and push in on it slightly to unlock it and then pull it all the way up until it stops.
    • 4Place a blanket or pillow on the ground in front of the headlight assembly. Push the assembly outward from behind with one hand while being ready to catch the assembly with the other. The New Beetles use an adhesive sealant to protect the back of the headlights from exposure to moisture, so you'll have to give the assembly a push from behind.
    • 5Pull the wire harness plugs off from both the high- and low-beam blades of the respective bulbs.
    • 6Place the assembly on the blanket or pillow. Release the wire clip to the faulty headlight and then remove the headlight bulb.
    • 7Open the package of the new H1 bulb replacement without touching the glass portion of the bulb with your bare skin. Oils in human skin will damage the bulb. Handle it only by the metal base of the bulb insert.
    • 8Insert the new bulb in the appropriate headlight-assembly cavity and reattach the bulb retaining clip to lock the bulb in place.
    • 9Lift the assembly up and plug the wire harness plugs back into the respective blades of the bulbs.
    • 10Push the headlight assembly into its cavity, but before locking it in place, check the lights by turning on the headlight switch.

Left low beam lamp is intermittent. Replaced bulb. How hard to replace pigtail?


if by pigtail i assume you mean the bulb wiring then not difficult unless its wiring block connector ,lots of modern vehicles have a multiplug that connects to the headlight then from the back of of that the wires run inside the headlight unit ,and i suspect that this multiplug connection is dirty or loose in some way ,if all else fails pick up the low beam feed wire and cut it from multiplug and run it direct to the low beam connection on the back of the bulb

I recently puchased blueish headlight bulbs for my 2006 Volvo S80. The original bulbs were 55W for both the low and high beams. i replaced the high beams with 100w blueish bulbs and they work fine. When...


i think im right in saying the low beam bulbs are twin filament(low and high beam in one)and the main/high beam are single filament(spotlights).

Need to change the left side low beam headlight.


It might be hard to get to like that. You will see a silver metal bar with a 90 degree angle at the top that goes straight down behing the headlight assembly, which you can pull up on. It holds the headlight in. Once you pull this up pust the headlight slightly sideways as there is a plug holding the headlight in at the back, then just pull forward to give youself space to work. Clip off the two clips and slide the back cover off then you can change the bulb out.

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.

Low beams do not work but High beams do


Yes you are... but only the bad onemake sure must be carefully when you take out the old bulbs. take this with you to the spare part..ask the store for the same type...and some times you must say to them type and brand of your car.
when you install new bulbs remember don't touch the glass area 'cause can make light not bright...good luck

How do you change a headlight on a 2006 kia sedona?


Left front low or high beam headlight: remove battery, remove weather cap, pop-off 2-prong connector, depress spring holding bulb in position, use inspection mirror if necessary, one end of spring is caught beneath a lip, Move spring past lip and lift up, it will rotate upward and is fastened on opposite side. Remove old bulb, install new 55 watt halogen bulb (H7-55) available at Walmart. Install new bulb with tang in slot at bottom, fold over spring and depress to hook end under latch point, install 2-prong electrical connector, install weather cap, turn about 1/8 turn to lock into position. Reinstall battery, clean terminals and cable ends, place new no-corrode rings (available from Walmart) around battery posts, install cable ends, and tighten.

Right front headlights: not necessary to remove battery, otherwise same essential procedure.

Note: Lower and upper beams all use same H7-55 bulb.
