    It's a '95 960 - UK spec, low headlights.

    There's supposed to be a bonnet light on this thing, but it's not
    working and I can't see it anywhere! There's a plunger switch on the
    car just by the RHS of the radiator header tank, but no sign of a light

    Do I have one? Where's it hiding? Or is the manual just being flakey?

    Hello Andy!

    I know such a light from my 89' 244, but I never found one in my current
    97' 964. But I have to admit, I never searched hard. It's mentioned in
    the manual? Will have a look into it.
    Perhaps it's an extra?

    On my 1994 940 no bonnet light also. Purchased a utility light for
    $6.00 USD with a built in switch, works very well.

    My 240 had one right in the middle of the edge of the hood closest to
    the windshield. It didn't operate with a plunger switch, though, it
    had a mercury tilt-switch.

    My 1989 760 GLE had one in the same place but (the price of progress?)
    my 1995 850 GLT does not have one. It was one of the great little
    touches that set Volvo apart from other car makers.

    So it may well be that the printing of manual is not entirely aligned
    with the updates to the car design.

    Good luck!

    FYI, my US-spec 1991 944 T (assembled in Canada) had under hood light
    controlled by a mercury switch. My US-spec 1994 964 (assembled in
    Sweden) has no under hood light.
