most carsv nowadays are sealed beams meaning you have to replace the whole unit rather than just replacing a bulb i am not sure with the volvo but would assume this is the case

Bulb is an H7 55w - price depends on brand (Hella or Sylvania Silver Star much higher than standard Sylvania). To change, open hood and look for round plastic cover over back of headlight. It's about the diameter of a big orange. Turn to remove. Remove black plastic connector (2 wires) from the bulb BEFORE you remove the spring holding the bulb in. New bulb goes in with the small square tab pointing up. Don't touch the glass part of bulb with your hands - your body oil will cause it to fail sooner. Getting the spring back on can take some effort. Then reconnect wire. And be sure to put the plastic cover back on.

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly,
behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator
You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
