pg. 95 Replacing bulbs

Replacing bulbs


Make sure when installing bulbs, that the guide pin on the socket fits into its corresponding recess. When installing Halogen bulbs, do not touch the glass with your fingers since grease, oil or any other impurities can be carbonized onto the bulb and damage the reflector. Use bulbs of correct type and voltage. Failure to do so could cause the bulb failure warning light to activate.


NOTE: Turn the ignition and the light switch off before replacing any bulbs.

The height of the headlight beams can be adjusted according to vehicle load. The headlights should be re-aimed if heavy loads are carried in the trunk/cargo area or rear seat, or when towing a trailer.
To adjust the headlights:

  • Park the car on a level surface and open the hood.
  • The headlights are equipped with a level which can be seen by looking through the clear "window" on the top of the headlight lens.
  • Turn the height adjustment knob until the bubble in the level aligns with the "0" marks or within the dark marking lines.


    Lateral headlight adjustment should only be carried out by an authorized Volvo retailer. The lateral adjustment scale (B) should be preset to "0".
