      2005 V70 Headlight Compatibility

      Did a search, and found a lot of information to parse regarding P2 headlight compatibility, and I’m trying to reach a quick conclusion, so I hope someone can help me (and everyone else isn’t too annoyed).

      My dad has the plastic/halogens on his 2005 V70 2.5T (and one of them took a hit from a stone).

      I’m currently looking at what appear to be a set of glass/xenons from a 2005 R. Is this a plug and play sway? From my search I see we maybe need a harness adapter. Is that an off the shelf Volvo part, or something people have to fabricate themselves?

      We already have a set of glass halogens my dad grabbed from a 2004 in a junkyard without realizing we’d have to redo the wiring, and I don’t want to make the same mistake twice (neither of us are proficient in electrical stuff).

      Thanks in advance!

      There is an adapter that would make R/glass xenons work on an 05+ but you’ll have bulb out CEM shutdown issues without doing some modifications

      Thanks.

      I’d seen a local part our of an S60 that said only wheels and aero kit had been sold, but when I contacted the seller he only had the left on left anyway. I think for the time being we just going to try to pull a plastic halogen, or grab the wiring and try to replicate to try to replicate the adapter you made, so we can use the glass halogens.
