    I have a Volvo as well and i read the manual on this exact problem...It states you must go to a Volvo dealership to have the turned off to where you can control them manually...if you find an alternative i would love to be able to turn mine off w/o having to make a trip into the dealers.

This is an old post, but I don't see a solution.  In the US, there is a very small switch that can be turned with a small screwdriver that is located on the lower right part of the light switch on the dash.  You can disable the daytime driving lights with this.  In Canada and others, you may not have that, as the driving lights are the law there.

How do you remove headlight unit on volvo v70 2002

Hedadlight removel Volvo V70 2002

Yes the full front bumper has to be removed. Not as bad as it sounds just take your time. One fixing screw in each wheel arch, two bolts behind black bumper trim each side of no. plate, and five or six plastic
plugs on slam panel. Remember to unplug fog lights if fitted. The lamp unit can then be removed secured by thee bolts two on slam panel and one on the inner side of the lamp near the radiator and a clip on the outer side, obvious when you take a good look and dont try to rush.
I hope this will help anyone else.

If your car has the xenon headlights, it might be a faulty xenon ballast/regulator module. You car has daytime running lights so they are on at a low power setting all the time.

How to change bulb in headligth of volvo v70

For the RH headlight, First remove the top cover of the ECU module just behind the headlight. Then remove the middle section leaving the ECU in place. Both parts are just clipped in so should come out fairly easily. You will then be able to get access the the headlight bulb, release the spring clip at the top (using a mirror helps) and the bulb should come out.
For the LH side remove the air filter housing.
