The ones that come with the headlights??

If so then you'll need a clear bulb.

Drivers side
1 - Remove the air box holding the air filter
2 - Twist LEFT on a white tab it is next to the turn signal bulb, and replace

Never heard of T10 on a P2. If it's not a P2 chassis Volvo then you're in the wrong section.

or you don't know what a side marker light is. I have the bulb I removed from the car right here in my hand. Go look at an early P2, right in front of the front door, and you will see a light housing right there.

The manual states that it is called the "Side Turn Signal"; while the "Side Marker Lights" are what comes with the headlight assembely.

The correct bulb is the WY5W bulb.

So you are trying to replace it with LED, right?

You want to do that then more power to you. However, it's going to blink incorrectly without modification since nothing on the car is desinged with LED in mind. And it's a bit too much in terms of time and money dealing with something that is not gonna light up for the majority of the cars life.

The one I replaced was an ordinary orange bulb, not LED.

you can replace it with LED without modification. I have tried a few LEDs including expensive ones i bought in Sweden and none are as bright as the incandescent bulbs. Im using Philips chrome bulbs, DO NOT get the early version Osram LED (on sale for a reason) with yellow covers, its a horrid faded looking colour when flashing.
