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.
