S40 Shifter light

Postby fuzzytice » 28 Feb 2009, 02:45

Hello, my first time here. Can anyone give me info on a replacement bulb for a 01 S40 Shifter indicator bulb ? Not the bulb in the dash but the one that shows what gear you have placed the car in.

Welcome to MVS.
First of all you'll need to remove the center console panel:

Next, follow the last part of the instructions in the file below:

I am also adding the how-to for the front center console section if you need to also replace the mode light in the gear shift panel:

Just replaced mine and took some pictures, hope it helps other members.
My car is 1999 V40 2.0 (RHD so light bulb is located on right side)

Loosen the only screw, and pull and slide the panel out.

The bulb holder is located underneath the 'N' position, slip your fingers inside the console and pull it out.

I don't know the part number but this is how the bulb looks and its size. I wrapped the bulb with tissue paper and pull it out with a plier.

Thanks for the info. Just replaced the one in my 2003 S40, and this info was a big help.

I used a C&K Components 1.90120.0120000 bulb which I ordered from Digikey: http://www.digikey.com/product-search/e ... maction=on (watch their shipping, anything other than USPS is really expensive.)

To get to the light, I removed the side panel like in chitin's photo, as well as the piece of plastic around the shifter so that I could see what I was doing. You can get to that by removing the rubber tray in front of the shifter (it just lifts off) and then releasing the two plastic clips underneath it. Those were pretty stiff and I had to pry them with a screw driver. I did them one at a time, which makes it easier since the piece can slide a bit. Once they are off you can just lift the cover out so you can see where the bulb socket is.

Do you know if this bulb is the same for a 2000 S40? I cannot really tell from what's on the digikey website. Thanks!
