Coolant should be checked for specific gravity on regular intervals to ensure that it is within the 35-50% range depending on the climatic conditions. Too strong or too weak and it will be detremental to the aluminium parts of the engine and will cause corrosion. Have it changed to ensure that it is ok.

SOURCE: How do I replace the bi-xenon bulb in my 2007

I just did this on my 2008 C70, which I believe uses the same type of bulb. It's very easy. By the time you do your second one, you can probably do it in less than 5 minuites.

1) Take careful note of the orientation of the headlight houseing retaining pin, HID transformer, and bulb retention device.
2) Refer to the owners manual to pull the headlight housing retaining pin.
3) Pull the headlight housing forward until you can access the wiring harness plug. Push the clip on the top of the plug to unlock, then remove the plug.
4) At this poing the entire headlight housing is detached from the car. Take it indoors and have a beer before the next step.
5) Push back the two spring clips and remove the access door from the back of the headlight housing.
6) At this point in the owners manual, the instructions tell you to refer the problem to an expert and do not provide further details. Shoot you got the darn thing out. And you have a beer in hand. You look like an expert. Let's continue.....
7) The low beam light has a transforer attached to the back of the bulb. Unplug the wires attached to the transformer.
7) Twist the transformer counter clockwise 1/8 turn, and remove the transformer.
8) The base of the bulb is now visiable, but the bulb is held in by a large retaining knurled plastic knob about 1-3/4 inch in diameter. Twiist that knob 1/8 inch turn counter clockwise and remove.
9) The old bulb is now free, and can be removed. Do not touch the glass on the new bulb, but carefully seat it in the same orientation in the housing.
10) Assembly is a reverse of the previous steps. Hopefully you paid attention to the orientation during removal, as the bulb, retaining knob, transformer, and housing retaining pin all are keyed and will fit in one way only.
11) Have another beer, and bask in the admiration of your family and friends, you expert you! Congratulations!
