Question about 2005 Volvo S40
Old body style or new body style?
New body style...there should be a bar type thing that holds it in place.
Old body style, there are two different styles. One where you can take the headlight out without pulling the bumper cover off, and the other where you need to pull the bumper cover off.
Wiggle the assembly around while looking for any areas where screws seem to be missing.

Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza:
Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger
side (left). The headlight assembly
needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the
left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of
the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise
(to the left). Pull the pin straight up
to remove. The headlight assembly is now
loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that
still holds the assembly. Pull the
headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held
just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the
gasket out of the grill cowling. The
assembly should pull straight out. The
wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and
pull out the light holder. Change the
bulb. Do not punch your man-card for
credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second
time. Once you have put the L-pin in
place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch
I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.
