Ok so my headlight low beam bulb was gone, so i decided to buy a new one, they gave me a H11 halogen but when i took the old one it had different plugs.

This is the one they gave me

H11




This is the one the car has.
H7


So do i need H7?

What model car do you have? H11 should be the one for early new S40s. I don't know about the newer models...

Where are u from? I want to saw there are differences between markets. US standard should be H11.

That is likely why. My pocket book on the P1 chassis I got when working at the Volvo dealer specifies H11 and H7 depending on the market ur car is from.

If i remember right, the bulb numbers are listed in tiny letters on the outside of the headlight. The front clear plastic piece, but I might be thinking of another vehicle.

Yes, that is an H7. You need an H7

The picture in the diagram (item #4) is also an H7
