Volvo XC90: Replacing bulbs - MAINTENANCE AND SERVICEVolvo XC90: Replacing bulbs

Bulb types vary depending on model and equipment level. If a light bulb1 breaks, it can be replaced by following the procedure shown in the Owner's Manual.

If you are experiencing problems with any lights other than light bulbs, contact a workshop2.

If there is a problem with an LED3 light, the entire lamp unit will normally need to be replaced.

NOTE

For information on lights not mentioned in the Owner's Manual, contact a Volvo retailer or an authorized Volvo workshop.

WARNING

The vehicle electrical system must be in ignition mode 0 when bulbs are replaced.

CAUTION

Never touch the bulb glass with your bare fingers. Grease and oils from your fingers vaporize in the heat and will leave a deposit on the reflector, which may damage it.

NOTE

If the error message persists after the defective bulb has been replaced, we recommend a visit to an authorized Volvo workshop.

NOTE

Exterior lighting such as headlights and taillights may develop temporary condensation on the inside of the lens. This is normal. All exterior lighting is designed to resist this. Condensation is normally vented out of the lamp housing once the light has been lit for some period of time.

NOTE

Bulbs for Active Bending Lights* contain traces of mercury and should therefore always be deposited at an authorized Volvo workshop.

1 Some vehicles do not have any light bulbs.

2 An authorized Volvo workshop is recommended.
