Re: V 70 daylight running lights
To go back to the original question, I live in the UK, have a '97 V70 and
experienced the same problem soon after I bought it in 2000. I changed one
headlight bulb, then another would go, and so on. Eventually, I took advice
from the (very experienced) Chief Mechanic at my local Volvo dealership, who
recommended I change all four (2 x dipped and 2 x full beam) bulbs at the
same time, and with Volvo bulbs rather than generics.
I took some convincing, but eventually did as I was told. Whether by fluke
or not, I have not had another bulb go in the last four years, and I run
with daylight running lights on (travelling regularly on the M25 around
London, I'll take any help that's offered in order to be seen......!)
