Question about Volvo V70
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: Mirror indicator
under the mirror there should be a 1 1/2 slot door under mirror that looks like a flat lid this will be flush with mirror moulding where it looks like a quarter can turn it
this is the light access panel the detachment screw is threw this panel to take off mirror then you can access the bulb

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!

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

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.

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.
