There was a special cap available from Volvo to address this problem. It replaces the existing cover that accesses the bulb. I can't remember if it applies to the 2000 S80, but I would check with the dealer first before replacing the headlamp assembly.

Headlight assembly remove


Remove turn signal. Loosen screws mounting bumper to front mudguard. Shift the bumper slightly to front/down. Headlight will probably go out (after unscrewing with 10 mm wrench).

Need to clean front lights lens - how do you take off the lens?


The front headlight "lens" is part of the headlight assembly. If the exterior of the lens is what you need to clean because it is oxidized or pitted, then you have at least 2 options:

1) replace the assembly - you can buy them on the internet for about $70 a pair. There are youtube videos that show how to replace them. It is a job for almost any skill level. Here is one youtube video I watched before replacing my headlights.

2) Buff the lens using one of the headlight polishing kits you can buy at Autozone or Walmart. Kits are about $20. I polished my headlights and they looked great, but re-oxidized quickly.I found replacing them was a better long-term option. There are also youtube videos showing you how to do this.

How to remove headlamp assambly in a volvo s60 2002


Hello,

This should be fairly simple,one may have to remove the grille.

  • Remove trimmings on the front bumper cover to allow access to the bolt for removal of the front bumper. The trimming can be removed simply by prying the trimming from the center of the bumper cover using a Philips screw driver.
  • After removing the 2 bolts on the bumper cover, you may open the hood and remove the plastic fasteners on the top of the bumper.
  • To remove the plastic fastener, simply depress the center until click. Do not press too far or the fastener will be damaged.
  • Turn the Torx screw in the wheel well counter clockwise to loosen the catch plate on the bumper. Lift the bumper cover over the catch plate and push the bumper cover forward. This completes the removal of the front bumper cover.
  • To remove the headlight assembly, you will need to loosen the bolt on the retainer near the wheel well. You will then remove the 4 bolts that hold the headlight assembly.
  • There is one bolt on the side of the headlight assembly. Two bolts on top and one at the corner of the lens. They all have the same size bolt.
  • In order to remove the headlight assembly, after removing the bolts, the headlight harness needs to be removed.
  • The next step is to remove the trimming on the lens and removing the clips that hold the lens in place. There are 4 clips. One clips on each side.
  • Once the clips are removed, the lens can be pry open with screw driver. You may want to heat the edge to soften the glue or use an utility knife to scrape the edge. Be extra careful, as the glass can be very sharp if shattered. Please also wear protective gear such as safety goggle and gloves. After this, just reverse the steps to put the headlight back together.
Take care and good luck

I have to replace the ballast for the HID headlights on my 2004 XC70 volvo and it is under the headlight assembly. I just need assistance on how to remove the passenger side headlight assembly


You need to remove the front bumper. Five push clips along the hood line, remove the headlight wipers (if equipped), one T25 screw in the front of each fender well, then two 12mm bolts under the headlights (1 each side). Then there are 4 10mm bolts holding the headlight in.

Replace front corner light on 1997 Volvo S90


The side marker light comes out from under the hood. You have to push down on a release tab. You can see the tab if you look down directly over the headlight and slightly over to the outer side of the car. if you have the new lens, its easier to visualize

I can't figure out how to replace the front turn signal


There is one screw on top of headlight assembly that holds turn signal lens in place you have to remove that screw and pull lens straight out. As far as head lamps go its just a matter of getting your hand behind headlight assembly to remove the collar that holds the bulbs in place.
