Go to a major chain auto parts store and they'll probably do it for you if you buy a bulb from them.

How to remove headrests on 2001 volvo s80?

On the earlier 1999 & 2000 model V70s & S70s there are some plastic tabs further down the front backrest (vertically down from each headrest post) that you feel around for and actually snap them with pressure from your thumbs. The way to find them is to poke small dressmaking pins into the leather (leaves a tiny hole) to find the tabs which are perforated at their seams. The measure is around 140mm down from the top of the seat.

Volvo s80 auto 2.4 when stood in drive and foot on brake transmission goes in and out of drive.Ihave fitted a new brake light switch

its supposed to do that, its a gas mileage/transmission wear thing. there is a reprogram that only the dealer can perform that will make it less noticable. but it is no harm, unless the car wont go when you press on the gas

Volvo s80 dashboard fault

This is a known problem although Volvo will not admit it. The dash needs to come out (10 min job) and sent away for a simple repair. Total cost is about £150 but you will need to get the SRS warning that will be showing in the LED message display cancelled by a Volvo dealer after the dash has come back. Don't try a scrapyard dashboard the ECUs have IP addresses. I used a company in Kent to do the repair. Get onto Google there may be a repairer more local.

Headlamp shield on a 1999 s80 volvo

There are several tabs which hold the glass to the plastic surround. In the center of those clips there is a square cut-out. With the right pressure you can flatten out these clips with a screwdriver to relieve the tension holding the two pieces together. together. Be careful when you install the new lens making sure to use a new seal and to seat it properly. It is easiest to put the clips back on starting with the top with one then one on the bottom. Then go all the way around.

It's very easy. Just take off the back seat behind the driver. There is a cover , remove it and then you have it. Be carefull ther is a big plastic nut and all is under it - regular right hand thread. Change the o-ring before puting it back.
Good luck
