Volvo V40/S40 bi-xenon projector installation

Volvo V40/S40

The V40/S40 1999-2004 type has a butyl sealant headlight, which is pretty easy to separate the headlights. Just heat the headlight in a carton box with a heat gun, or in a pre heated oven. When the sealant is soft enough, you can pull off the glass pretty easy!

This car has H7 halogen headlights which can be retrofitted pretty easy with our Mini H1 bi-xenon projectors.
As you can see on the pictures, the mini H1 bi-xenon projectors with a smaller shroud like the Mini Gatlin gun will fit perfectly in the reflector headlight.

Just open the headlight, and screw this projector (plug and play) into the H7 socket of your low beam. Connect the high beam splitter on the back with the H7 splitters, which come with the twin kit, you can order in our shop and you have halogen high beam AND xenon high beam!

If you like angel eyes on the projector you can also choose the Mini AE shrouds and buy separately the SMD Angel eyes for on top of the shroud.

      Hi George, you would need the Mini H1 projectors. You can still use your ballasts, but not the bulbs. If you need any more help, please send us an e-mail at

    When installing 12.5 projectors on Volvo v40, do you have to align the beam patterns before sealing the headlight?

    1. Stefan

      Yes, this is advisable! 🙂
