Got a message this morning that low beam was out. Could not figure which to buy. I have the regular Halogen lights. Not the xenon ones.
Manual says H7- all the sale sites say H11- FCP doesn't even carry a low beam bulb except for the OEM Volvo.
Osram site states H11. But then some sites say H11 is fog light insert.
Any clarification would help on this. 2011 year.

Low beams are H11 in the pre-facelift - you can carve up an H9 bulb base with a dremel to fit the H11 slot to improve light output if desired - don't think the facelift changed bulb type, but I'm not certain

Yeah, that’s interesting that the manual says H7 for both Halogen and ABL headlights. Of course, the obvious solution is to pull the bulb and see what it says...
