Question about 2004 Volvo XC90
About 75% of my headlight covers have a discolored film on them that will not come off. It looks terrible, and people are always asking me what happened to my headlights. I have started noticing that some other XC 90 have the same problem. I contacted my VOLVO dealer but was basically brushed off. What can I do? Thanks!
I went back to the dealership on this problem and they corrected the appearence of the lenses by using a buffing kit that they have exclusively for lenses with a discoloration problem. THe headlight lenses look like new now. I got it done for free as part of my Volvo certification program, but the dealership's charge about $75 per lense. It's a far better solution than buying new lenses. Check it out at your local Volvo dealership.

I called Volvo North America and after several days of call-backs was told that the 'factory' plastic doesn't stand up to heat and washing. I replaced them both with aftermarket units and the $300 per headlight alone was worth it but after 4 years (I have a 2004 t-6) the aftermarkets are still clear, go figure. Got them from www.autopartswarehouse.com for $200 each (dealer qutoed $525 + labor). BTW they install with only two clips on the top, don't let a dealer charge you more than $50 to replace them.

I bought Mother's headlight buffing system for 24.99$ at Walmarrt and am in the elbow grease portion and the lenses are already 100% better then they were! I have a 2005 XC90 and the yellow lenses drive me crazy! This buffing kit is working pretty good and I'm sure I can have then crystal clear with a bit of elbow grease! 300$ for a part for an eight year old vehicle is a no go for me!

I had the same problem with my 2004 Vovlo XC90. I got 2 brand new headlights on Ebay for $274.00 including shipping. Check it out. The dealer wanted $475.00 each in Dallas, TX. Not installed.
