Question about 2000 Volvo S40

1 Answer

I want to change my headlight assembly on my 2000 Volvo S40. I have a replacement assembly in hand and all I see are 4 bolts. The mechanic wants to charge $130.00 in labor for each headlight. Is changing the headlight really that labor intensive? The mechanic told me it would be 1.5 hours per headlight, is this correct? Can I find directions online?

Normally pretty simple and easy. Don't know about Volvo-maybe some models need a lot of stuff removed to get to the assembly. Look on you tube video for headlight removal on Volvos-probably some or many.
That cost sounds outrageous-$260 for both headlights? I'm sure you could do it yourself, maybe just need a little guidance. Talk privately to a Volvo mechanic.

SOURCE: how to change indicator bulb

The front indicators are held in by a phillips screw which can be seen if you look down from the top of the lamp, it only needs to be loosened a turn, there's a plastic tag as a safety clip which needs to be pressed towards the headlamp at the same time as you pull the indicator lamp forwards. Once the lamp is out the bulb holder twists 1/4 turn to release.

Behind Headlamp remove wiring clip and tape it off. At the same time tie off the water pipe. That'll do the job quickly. Otherwise removing the whole wiper system isn't a big job.

SOURCE: want to replace signal fuse in volvo s40

i have a 98 s40. The fuses can be found internal (under the dashboard near the bonnethandle). Inside it you can find the fuse clamp and extra fuses. These can also be used for the external fusebox under the bonnet.
I have found the fuse that might be broken, but i can't replace it because it has some extra casing. It's for internal lights and the alarm.

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.

Headlight loose


Hi Lowgate, you need to remove the front bumper for a start. Then the headlamp can easily be removed by removing the 4 10mm bolts that secure it.
