Nothing is more frustrating than having an interior or map light burn out when you need it the most. The good news is that they are easily replaced with only a flathead screwdriver. Take care not to touch the glass part of the bulb with your bare hands. The oil in your fingers can cause uneven temperatures in the glass, leading to premature failure.

Shown here is the overhead console in the Volvo C30.
Figure 1

Shown here is the overhead console in the Volvo C30. Replacing the bulbs requires you to remove the console. Pry along the edge of the console using a flathead screwdriver (green arrows). Use caution not to drop the console once it is free.

Turn the console over so you can access the four light bulbs shown here (green arrows).

Simply turn each light bulb counter-clockwise to release the bulb from the console.

Simply turn each light bulb counter-clockwise to release the bulb from the console. Place the new bulb in the console and turn it clockwise to lock it place. Now place the console back up on the headliner and pop it back into place.
