H4 E-Code Variation
 
Are all the Volvo H4 E-Codes the same size? I've seen a few sets that look larger than the earlier H4 E-Codes (81-85). I am just curious about the interchangeability between the two.

The front end sheet metal changed 85-86 in the USA market.

The only thing that changed was the one piece chrome headlamp trim -1985 then two piece 1986-

If I recall correctly other markets (like Europe/Australia) and the US made the switch over to what would be the later style "TV screen" headlight at different times. The US made the switch with the '86 model year. It seems to have happened earlier in Europe.

Dave Barton has a decent page describing the differences. https://www.240turbo.com/headlight.html

The other world markets got the change in 81. In the US we got the front sheet metal change in 86. So those in between years 81-85 have old sheet metal for the US models and the other world markets had the new sheet metal and head light in 81.

Must have been a bit of a production hassle to have two different sheet metal front ends at the same time.

The tyranny of sealed beams truly knew no bounds.

And, to make things even more interesting, Canada had the old sheetmetal front end with the 1975-82 bumpers through 1985.

No TV screens are bigger, and mount on early sheet metal.
