The issue is not really the wiring, it was the connector starting to melt because the lights are hot from being on all the time. What Volvo did was come out with a connector replacement to save you from having to buy the whole headlight assembly. The repair was to remove the light assembly which requires removing the bumper skin to access the bolts and cut and solder the connectors. What you should do is have the daytime running lights disabled or have them programmed to come on using the sun sensor on top of the dash. When it does not sense the heat from the sun, the lights automaticly come on. I disabled my daytime lights and just turn them on manually at night. I save on having to replace the headlight and position bulbs. Good luck and keep me posted.
