WHIPS - seating position
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.
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.
