Default 2000 volvo v70 Headlamp assembly motor replacement

Hi all,

I have a P80 V70. The reflector inside my left side headlamp assembly is sort of degraded. I am thinking of replacing it. I checked with a Volvo dealer and they gave me a quote of 340. The problem is that most of the third party part does not come with headlight adjustment motor. The volvo original comes with it.

I checked with a local part store and they said I could transfer the adjustment motor to the new headlamp assembly. The third party part they are having is from Depo and it costs 99.

Could you please tell me if it is easy to replace the motor myself. I couldn't find any videos related to it.

Thanking you all in advance for your replies.

Hope to hear from yo usoon

Regards
D

Default Headlamp replacements

Depending on how long you intend to keep the car, the best route is to get a pair of replacement headlamps with manual adjustment motor and bulbs included. I got a pair for 397 two years ago from a Volvo dealer. It's better to buy a pair as the reflectors on both will have deteriorated after nearly 20 years.

Try PFS parts,

Come without adjusting motors but these are easy enough to swap from the old units.

Yes, very easy to swap the electric adjustment motor - can't remember the details exactly right now, but super simple to work on, it'll be pretty obvious once you get the light out, which is also really easy, one connector and 3 x bolts all of which are readily accessible. Definitely not worth spending so much extra to get a replacement light with it already fitted!

Hi,

Thank you all for your replies. I think I will go with the 3rd party part and swap the motors. I am also thinking of replacing both sides at the same time.

Regards
D
