Change indicator bulb in Volvo V70 wing mirror

Anyone know how to do this at home, to avoid a trip to a Volvo garage and a $50 charge? I have a 2011 model V70. How many Volvo mechanics does it take to change a light bulb?

Easy peasy. Adjust mirror fully one direction or the other, right or left. Grab mirror glass through the gap created, pull hard to remove mirror glass. Light bulb assembly will be exposed for simple swap. Use a #194 bulb of your choice (there are many choices at your favorite local auto parts dealer). SELECT YOUR CAR
Good luck, should take five minutes or less.

SOURCE: wing mirror indicator not working

I changed mine a few years ago (2005 Sharan). Price of the LED part was ~£20 from the main dealer. Biggest problem was taking the mirror unit apart. I spent ages removing the mirror then seperating the parts. Later some ne'r-do-well knocked into the mirror on a bike, folding it towards the front of the car, and it all just came apart in such a way as to make changing the indicator easy!

SOURCE: need to change the wing mirror on my ford focus c max but dont know how

remove the plastic cover directly behind the mirror on the inside of the door, it just clips off normally with a flat blade or knife (Blunt knife if possible as a sharp one may cut the upholstery)
Once removed you should be able to see the retaining bolts that hold the mirror to the door.
If you have electric mirrors there should be a multi wire electrical plug you will have to disconnect before removing the mirror.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how to changehead light bulbs on volvo v70

To gain access to the bulbs, you need to go under the bonnet (/hood) and remove the housing cover on the reverse side of the light units.
Should just be a simple clip, but make sure that it doesn't fly out of your sight;)
Relatively simple for the rears too.
Just plastic covers on the reverse side of the units, with clips that could break, if you are too rough with them.
Have fun.

Some lights won't let you replace the bulb. You will probably have to replace the bulb and the casing. Take the entire casing to your nearest auto store and they should have what you need

2002 Volvo V70, left turn signal will quick flash, rt side works


this issue appears many times because the wrong wattage bulb was used. the system measures the amperage flow to the individual bulb. if it falls outside the factory range ,, the indicator light will come on. I had a 1990 volvo myself. had a terrible time keeping good tail lights in that ****** but ABSOLUTELY loved that car. loved it so much I bought another (1998) model. it just wasnt the same driving experience as the 90 model though.
hope this helps...

MIRROR INDICATOR BULB


You cannot change the bulb - the indicator is a sealed unit - mine failed because water got into a crack.  VW will sell you the unit - you need to dismantle the wing mirror to fit it - took me about 20 mins.  Cost of the unit was about £17
