Open the bonnet
|Pull the handle beside the pedals to release the bonnet from its fully closed position.|
|Move the handle under the bonnet upwards to release the bonnet from the lock catch and lift the bonnet.|
Only loosen the panels around the storage area under the bonnet if the instructions in the owner's manual explicitly state that this is necessary. Contact a workshop in the event of a problem or if maintenance is required – an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
Warning - bonnet not closed
Open bonnet is indicated by a warning symbol and graphic in the driver display as well as by an acoustic signal.
If the car indicates that the bonnet is open despite it being fully closed – open the bonnet and follow the instructions for closing again. Visit a workshop if the problem persists – an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
Close the bonnet
Make sure that nothing is in the way of the bonnet closing to avoid crushing damage.
Lower the bonnet.
When the bonnet has stopped against the bonnet lock – press down on the bonnet with both hands according to the description in the illustration in order to fully close it. Do not load the sides of the bonnet.
The bonnet must be audibly locked on both sides.
Check that the bonnet has been properly locked and that it is not open slightly.
Never drive with an open bonnet.
Thoroughly check that the bonnet is fully closed after it has been open.
If the car warns or indicates that the bonnet is open, or if something else suggests that it is not fully closed – stop immediately and close it firmly.
