Set the correct seating position in the front seat before driving starts.
Driver and front seat passenger should sit in the centre of the seat with as little space as possible between the head and the head restraint.
Do not leave any objects on the floor behind the driver's seat/passenger seat that may prevent the WHIPS system from functioning.
Do not squeeze rigid objects between the rear seat cushion and the front seat's backrest. Make sure you do not to obstruct the function of the WHIPS system.
Do not place objects on the rear seat that may prevent the WHIPS system from functioning.
If a backrest in the rear seat is lowered or a rear-facing child seat is used in the rear seat, the corresponding front seat must be moved forward so that it does not make contact with the lowered backrest or child seat.
If a seat has been subjected to extreme forces, such as due to a rear-end collision, the WHIPS system must be checked. Volvo recommends that it is checked by an authorised Volvo workshop.
Part of the WHIPS system's protective capacity may have been lost even if the seat appears to be undamaged.
Volvo recommends that you contact an authorised Volvo workshop to have the system checked even after a minor rear-end collision.
