Recommended maintenance for camera and radar units

In order that the camera and radar units shall function correctly, they must be kept clear of dirt, ice and snow, and be cleaned regularly with water and car shampoo.


Dirt, ice and snow covering the sensors may cause incorrect warning signals, reduced or no function.

The following illustrations mark out the surfaces to be kept clean – on both the left and right-hand sides of the car.

  • To ensure best possible functionality, the surfaces in front of the sensors must be kept clean.
  • Do not affix any objects, tape or labels in the area of the sensors.
  • Clean camera lenses regularly with lukewarm water and car shampoo - be careful not to scratch the lenses.


Maintenance of driver support components must only be performed at a workshop – an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
