A towbar means that it is possible to e.g. tow a trailer behind the car.
If the car is equipped with a removable towbar, the installation instructions for the loose section must be followed carefully, see Detachable towbar - attachment/removal.
If the car is fitted with a Volvo detachable towbar:
- Follow the installation instructions carefully.
- The detachable section must be locked with the key before setting off.
- Check that the indicator window shows green.
- The towbar's towball must be cleaned and greased regularly.
The moving parts of the detachable towbar must not be lubricated/oiled. This may reduce safety.
When a hitch with a vibration damper is used, the towball must not be lubricated.
This also applies when fitting a bicycle rack that is clamped in around the towball.
