Own 2006 volvo C70 T5 Made in Sweden

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your C70 yourself? What have you tried so far?

The daylight running light and the low beam light being the same light, is there a recommended bulb because since my drivers side ligtht has been replaced, can no longer see at night past approx 1 road chevron..I now consider it dangerous to drive at night low beams, cannot see much ???

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the fuses?

Affirmative, light is working, I lack proper visibility

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Only I've had left bulb changed and no improvement in visibility. tks

I found the problem, not headlamps. The headlight housing unit screw had been stripped when in for service (not admitted of course) and was not able to raise unit up for better visibility. Going to try led lights.
p.s. I do not even consider self repair on my volvo..
Have a good one
