Hello. Question about the high beams on my 2006 XC90 2.5. It has the HID/Xenon bulbs but they don't seem to help. I replaced them a year ago as a pair (Philips D2R Standard Xenon HID Headlight Bulb) after one burnt out. The high beam indicator on the dash works. The lens assembly moves up and down audibly and seen aimed against a flat wall at night. There is no change in visibility though.
The assembly cut-out for a high beam is empty (no bulb on either side) but the connector has power. The owner's manual lists an H7 bulb for high beams but it is appears to be an angled H10/H11 plug fitting. I've received different responses from different dealers as well as my usual Volvo part supplier. I know the tilting angle of the assembly is supposed to change visibility and act like traditional high beams but does not actually help. All driving and fog lights work as expected, headlight knob is in the correct position, both assembly tilt motors work. Any thoughts?
I just buffed and polished the lenses and there is no significant pitting. Both sides are equally level and correct. Help!!!
