Talking How to Remove Front Bumper Cover on 2002 S80

I need to remove the front bumper cover on my 2002 S80 in order to replace the left headlight assembly. Anyone know the tricks to get it off??

Here is the procedure:

Cover strip
Removal:
- Remove the side turn signal lamp;
- Remove the headlamp wiper (if there is one);
- Carefully detach the cover strip clips. Start at the short end at the wheel arch and work towards the grille.
Installation:
In reverse order

Front bumper casing
Removal
- Remove 6 screws (3 on either side -- 2 between the grille and the headlamp wiper, 1 beneath them under protecting cover);
- Drill out 8 rivets (4 in each wheel arch);
- Remove 11 clips above the grille by pressing down the center;
- Pull the bumper casing forward;
- Disconnect the connector on the left-hand side;
- Remove the casing.
Installation:
In reverse order. Be sure to position the casing in the guide channels.

Thanx, aok404. This seems like a lot of work to replace a headlight assy! I believe I only have to remove the left side bumper cover far enough to get the headlight assy out. To remove that cover strip, do i just pry out the strip ? Do I have to drill out those rivets or can I pull the bumper casing back far enough to get the headlight out?

Sorry to disappoint you, but you will have to remove the entire bumper casing in order to replace a headlight assembly, which is being held in place by four screws. Removing and putting back the entire casing is not a big deal at all, except for the need to put new rivets in. So, just buy/borrow a riveting tool and purchase the rivets – they are a dollar a piece at Volvo dealers (cheaper at IPDUSA, FCPGroton, etc, but you will have to pay for shipping). Regarding the cover strip – remove the side turn signal lamp and start pulling the strip by the edges of the hole; you will see.
