    How easy is it to replace the headlamp unit on a V70 (2002)?

    If your hand is not too large it is not to bad. You need to remove the
    round cover from back of headlamp assembly. This is done buy unscrewing it
    about a one third of a turn. Just before you remove it note it position so
    when you replace it will you can place it in same position to reinstall.
    Once you have cover off you should remove the plug that attaches to the
    lamp. You may have to use a screwdriver to pry the plug off. It holds
    tight to the lamp connection. Now that the plug is off you can loosen the
    collier that hold the bulb. It also needs about 1/3 a turn. As you take
    out the lamp note the position of the key/tab on bulb so you will know how
    to position the replacement correctly. Turn signal lamp takes an even
    smaller hand. Tom

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    Surely the question was about replacing the *whole* headlamp unit - not just
    the bulb?!

    Do you have to take the spoiler/bumper off to do it?

    You have to move the side out of the way to remove the headlight assembly

    "*-344-*Never Forgotten"
    Is for the New York City Firemen who lost their lives on September 11,2001.
    The official count is 343, but there was also a volunteer who lost his life
    aiding in the initial rescue efforts. And I will never forget them as
    long as I live,
    nor should any American.
