Volvo XC60 Lights

smjtysmjty Posts: 1
Thanks in advance for the advice. The right rear tail light lense is broken on our 2010 XC 60. Fully operational but unfortuately a baseball size hole in the lense. No other damage thankfully. Based on what I can see of the Volvo parts inventory list on-line, the entire light assembly must be replaced in order to replace the lense. I am hoping it is a plug in unit and that I can replace it myself. The method of holding the assembly in place is not open and obvious other than a clip that appears under one of the hatch door rubber stops. Has anyone seen a manual on this or are you otherwise familiar with whether this is a DIY project or one for the dealer. I appreciate the help.

    I have a 2011.5 xc 60. The rear fog light does not lit up when I press the rear fog light button. The left one is working fine. Volvo did this purposely for safety reason according to my sales man. Volvo doesn't want other drivers (behind my car) to think that they are break lights.

    Instead of red cover, Volvo should change to a clear cover like other car makers did, then problem solved. With only the left one on, not only it does not look good but also the police may give me a fix-it ticket.

    Does anyone know how to fix it (re-wire or fuse, connection...) in order to turn on the left for light?

    Thanks

    Rear fogs are always just one light... Every euro model I've seen is this way (for precisely the reason your salesman stated).

    You can't "fix it"... it's working properly.

    Thanks for your reply. This is my first Euro car (always have Japanese cars) so I don't know that until now. I will take a look of my sister's BMW and Mercedes in order to satisfy my curiosity.

    I was following an Audi A6 on my commute, just yesterday morning.. He had his rear fog light illuminated. It is disconcerting to just see the one light, I know...

    I don't think BMWs come with rear fog lights... Audi, Volvo and Saab for sure.... don't know about Mercedes..

    Thinking of getting XC 60 with bi xenon lights , wanted to find out if bi xenon emit white light or regular yellow light . Dealer didnot had a XC 60 with xenon stocks so I couldn't really test the car with bi xenon.

    Bi-xenons are HID lights... bluish-white... definitely not yellow.
