Volvo V70 2001 to replace front passenger turn bulb

Volvo V70 2001 wagon...need to replace front passenger side turn signal bulb (next to headlamp)...I am turning counter clockwise (have tried gently clockwise also) as owners manual says to do, but it will NOT budge. Pushing in at the same time does not help either. Gently griping with pliers and attempting to turn also does not help. What else can I try to remove the turn signal bulb assembly?

If there are no burn marks on the housing then use as much force by hand to turn the entire black knurled assembly counter clockwise, you may already be at the point you have to be. Now try wiggling it back forth and pulling straight back at the same time. I'm assuming you've removed the housing from the body. If not there is a small gray latch that just pushes back and the whole assy. comes out very easily. When replacing the bulb put a little dab of vaseline on the metal area of the bulb before inserting it.

Passenger side front turn signal/DRL do not work.

Dear Alex,
The problem is in the bulb, or the socket, or the wiring to these.
Whenever a turn signal flashes fast, know that one of the bulbs is not working.
You have already identified the problem as being the front one. Problem could be the hot wire, or the ground wire, or the ground connection to this bulb.
Start by taking a tester to the hot wire, and see if it is receiving electrical impulses when the turn signal is on.
( It probably is, unless the car has been in a wreck and has been improperly repaired.)
Then check the socket or the wires to is and see if the bulb is grounded.
I suspect the ground is defective, and either a new socket or a repair to the ground wire should fix you rights up.
God bless your efforts.

Both Volvo S40 Headlights went out while driving???

Always the first check is bulbs. You have to physically replace bulbs because sometimes a bad one looks like good.

If there is no voltage at both lamps check Central Electronic Module. In European models it is located behind the cover that is under the steering wheel, at the left side, next to front hood open lever.

2001 S60 Right Turn Signal Blinks Rapidly compared to Left Signal

Gregg -

I had the same problem. It was a defective lamp socket on the driver's left side, Volvo Part Number 8662985. Costs me $11.24 to replace the lamp socket, which included the bulb. If you've already replaced the bulbs yourself, you will find replacing the socket pretty easy, just use a thin flathead screwdriver to delicately pry off the metal retainer clip which holds the lamp socket in place, as you'll need to reinstall the existing metal retainer clip once you've replaced the lamp socket. Two minute job.
