The pedestrian airbag (Pedestrian Airbag) is fitted under the bonnet near the windscreen. In the event of certain frontal collisions with a pedestrian, the sensors in the front bumper react and the airbag inflates if required, based on the force of the impact. The sensors are active at a speed of approx. 20-50 km/h (12-30 mph) and an ambient temperature between -20 and +70°C.
The sensors are designed to detect a collision with an object that has similar properties to those of the human leg.
- the rear part of the bonnet is raised and locked in this position
- the hazard warning flashers are activated
- the brake system is prepared for the upcoming emergency braking.
Do not fit any accessories or change anything in the front if the car is equipped with airbag (Pedestrian Airbag). Incorrect intervention at the front may cause incorrect function in the system and lead to serious injury and damage to the car.
Volvo recommends that genuine wiper arms are used and that you only use genuine parts for them.
