Hello there,

Quick questions to the experts: Is the 2006 V70 known to have burn marks inside the Xenon headlights? And if so, is there a solution available?
Both headlights on this particular car have the same issue. See photo below.

Greetings!

That looks like a mark on the chrome trim, not a burn mark inside the headlights

No. The marks are definitively on the inside of the headlight lens. Left and right. Both headlights are original and show similar symptoms. Never seen that before...

Normal. Think about the level of UV that bulb puts out.

Normal? Really? You seen that before? I have not. Not even on cars with tripple the miles this particular vehicle has...
I mean I have seen faded lenses. But lamps with marks on the inside?

It's normal, it's the combo of temperature of the xenon bulb and sunlight.
You can remove the old plastic lenses and put a new set on.

That's one of the fun jobs I need to do on my '07 as the lights are very bad. In fact they came off the '05 i had as I swapped the almost new lights off the broken '07 to the '05.
