How do you change the bulb in the headlight low beam on a 96 240 sx?

remove the battery(drivers side) or coolant reservoir(passanger side) to see the bulb holders twist and pull to reveal the bulbs

A headlight bulb on a 1982 Volvo 240 is accessed through the engine bay. Lift the hood and safely prop it open. Locate the headlight housings and pull the old bulbs off. Install the new lights.

Take the headlight Bezel off, unscrew the chrome bracket and the light falls out, just replace the bulb and reinstall the bracket and Bezel

1.) Open the hood 2.) Look directly behind the headlight housing inside of the engine compartment 3.) There should be a black plug plugged into the back of the headlight. The back of the headlight should be a grey cone shaped object and should NOT come out i this process. 4.) There is a black ring around the plug which secures the plug onto the headlight housing, turn it counter clockwise to loosen it until it slides back behind the plug. 5.) Pull out the plug and the bulb should be attached to it. you should be able to pop it right out and put in a new one. *NOTE: this might require a little coercion as 20 year old plastic parts tend to be a bit difficult. Volvo used pretty quality plastic parts on the 240 so you shouldn't worry too much about breaking anything but you should be careful as parts can be hard to find. Hope this helps, i own an 89' 240 dl sedan so it should be the same as yours.

The style of plug is a 9004. I just replaced one in my 91 Volvo 240. The connector was about 5 bucks at the parts store. Make sure you splice the red black and blue wires in correctly!

Please check it.It should be 240 X 12 if its is bulb angle. Manjush Navale

You did not say what year. On the 1989 Volvo 240 GL, the headlight relay is mounted on the drivers side front fender just back from the battery box. The relay has two plugs going into the bottom and I would say about 1 inch wide, 2 inches long and about 1.5 inches deep. The relay that you're referring to is the high beam relay. The headlight relay switch is located in the cab of the car behind the brake and gas pedals. You pull back the carpeting and it is mounted to the firewall.

Yes, you can easily use it. Just install it as you would any other 120 volt light fixture and change the bulb from a 240 volt bulb to a 120 volt bulb. It will work just fine.

User Avatar

for a 12 v bulb, 12 volts x 0.5 amps = 6 Watts for a 240 v bulb, 240 volts x 0.5 amps = 120 Watts.

Nobody has "240 watt mains". Perhaps you meant "240-volt mains".You would need to have a lighting or receptacle branch circuit, with over-current protection, in order to use any halogen bulb.However, if you have a 300 W bulb, it should work nicely in a 15-A or 20-A branch circuit.

If you mean that the lamp is rated for 240 volts then yes, a 120 volt bulb will operate in it if the lamp bases fit. If the 240 volt lamp is operating on 240 volts then no, a 120 volt lamp will not work in the fixture.

User Avatar

No, it is not safe. The lamp is rated for a certain voltage, 125 volts, and supplying 240 volts to it would exceed design safety margins. It is not just a case of changing the bulb. It would be a different story if the lamp itself were rated for 240 volts, but that's not what the question said.

Unscrew the plastic panel inside the trunk and the bulb housing unlocks when you turn it 1/3rd turn counterclockwise

The resistance of a piece of wire changes with temperature. In a filament bulb the wire is heated to about 3000 degrees C so a large change in resistance can be expected. A 240 v 105 w halogen bulb has a cold resistance of 35 ohms, but when running its resistance is 549 ohms.

User Avatar

If you divide the watts of the bulb by the supply voltage, that is the current. For example a 60 w bulb on a 240 v supply gives a current of 60/240 which is ยผ amp.

== == One of 4: First Choice: The Side light (first click on rotating switch). 5w capless. 90114440. (though now has changed number). cheap. About ยฃ0.60. Second & third Choice: Second click on rotary headlamp switch: Dipped beam, Choice of 2. If you are lucky, 91149650. (again changed part no, twice) about ยฃ7. If unlucky, it's a Xenon Headlamp. Number unknown. About ยฃ120. (Ouch!) or the control unit, about the same price, or both. Double Ouch. ยฃ240 for a blown bulb! Forth: the main beam bulb. (blue indicator light on dash), seem to last forever, can't remember when I last sold one, or price, but I think less than ยฃ10.

Current (amps) = power (watts) / voltage = 100/240 = 0.42 amps

User Avatar

Ohm's Law Voltage = Current x Resistance 120 /240 = .5 This is a 60 watt bulb.

240 thousandths is like saying 240/1000 = 24/100 = 0.24

User Avatar

A 240 v 14 w cfl bulb uses about 0.14 amps.

User Avatar

230 volt is the same as 240 volt. The voltage in households will fluctuate between 220 and 240.

User Avatar

Power(Watts) = I (Amps) x E(Voltage) PIE rule. so 1000 = I x 240. 1000/240 = 4.16667 amps.

My friend has a 1982 Volvo Station Wagon 240 GL that needs headlights replaced, what is the best way to go about this and about how much will it cost?

User Avatar

That depends on what voltage it's designed to operate from. Power = (voltage)2 / R R = Voltage2 / power If it's a 117-volt bulb, R = (117)2 / 28 = 489 ohms. If it's a 240-volt bulb, R = (240)2 / 28 = 2,057 ohms.

The resistance of a light bulb varies, depending on the type of bulb, the power rating, and the temperature. A typical incandescent 60 watt bulb, for instance has a cold resistance of about 30 ohms, and a hot resistance of about 240 ohms.
