How to replace front indicator / blinker on 1996 – 2004 Volvo S40 and V40

by: JSeaman

 

Although this tutorial was made based on a Phase  1 (1995 – 2000) Volvo V40, it’s the same procedure for Phase  2 (2001- 2004) Volvo S40 / V40 .

Step 1

Pop the bonnet

Step 2

Between the headlight and indicator you will find a posidrive screw, slacken this off (it clamps the indicator in place but only needs to be slackened to let the unit slide out, no need to take the screw out completely)

Step 3

Now simply slide the indicator unit outwards and shown

Step 4

Pull the light (gently) right out and then slide the connector off by lifting the tab, you can’t see it on the first picture as it is on the underside so I took another one to show the tab


Step 5

Remove the indicator from the car
