I found some time this long weekend and replaced fog lights, and rear turning bulbs, but the manual notes to have it done only by a volvo technician when it comes to the side markers (along with xenon and some interior bulbs) Is that difficult? anyone here has some experience. TIA.

Re: how to replace side marker bulbs (Cabot)

Tks Cabot, good point on the silver mirror covers being user-installable, I will investigate this weekend, if I figured how to remove the covers, I should be able to replace the current bulbs with the chrome/silver 5W5 turning bulbs I have. The OEM bulbs look like std filament to me, but I might be wrong.
In any case, I will give a try this weekend!

Re: how to replace side marker bulbs (Cabot)

Cabot, indeed it worked out. I arrived early today and I just replaced both in 6 minutes. It helped to check the instructions to replace the covers:

but I didn't have to remove the mirrors, I just very carefully removed the covers, they are three clips in the cover, two on the lower front and one on the side. Once the cover is out, I just replaced bulbs and put the cover back. Very straight forward.
