Question about 1988 Volvo 740
I am looking for a socket from a back turn ligth, from Volvo 740--1988
Those are Bosch sockets which Mercedes and Volvo loved, but which are a royal pain. The socket is a dual-filament socket probably combining the tail light AND turn signal. The others are all single-filament sockets. They are NOT interchangeable. First determine whether the socket is really at fault. Sometimes the contact points don't quite connect with the long busses in the tail light assembly. I have successfully cleaned mine. Maybe you can reform the contacts to make better contact. If not, Ebay has what you want under Volvo parts. The sockets for the 240 and 740 are the same, an d will fit either sedans or wagons. Voluparts in Atlanta Georgia has them too. Any junk yard with Volvos will have these sockets. I bought a bunch of spares for $10
