Opening and closing the bonnet

Updated 7/23/2018

The bonnet can be opened using the handle in the passenger compartment and a handle under the bonnet.

Open the bonnet

Pull the handle near the foot pedals to release the bonnet from its fully closed position.
Turn the handle under the bonnet anticlockwise to release the bonnet from the lock catches and lift the bonnet.

Warning - bonnet not closed

When the bonnet is released, the warning symbol and the graphics in the driver display will light up and an acoustic reminder will sound. If the car starts rolling, an acoustic warning signal will repeat.

For more information on graphics, see section "Door and seatbelt reminder".

Note

If the warning symbol is lit or the warning signal is heard despite the bonnet being closed properly, contact an authorised Volvo workshop.

Close the bonnet

Push the bonnet down until it starts to fall from its own weight.

When the bonnet stops against the lock catch, push the bonnet to close it completely.

Warning

Risk of crushing! Ensure that the closing path under the bonnet is not obstructed, otherwise there is a risk of personal injury.

Warning

Check that the bonnet locks properly when closed. The bonnet must engage at both sides audibly.
