Parking brake

In the event of a fault in the parking brake

In the event of a fault in the parking brake

Contact an authorised Volvo workshop if it is not possible to deactivate or activate the parking brake after several attempts.

An acoustic warning signal sounds when driving with the parking brake activated.

If the car has to be parked before a possible fault can be rectified, the car must be secured to prevent it from rolling away.

The car can be secured by parking on level ground and:

  • Block one or more of the wheels using suitable objects as chocks.
  • Turn the front wheels towards the kerb or similar.

Replacing the brake linings

The rear brake linings must be replaced at a workshop due to the design of the electrically-operated parking brake - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
