Towing bracket

A towing bracket means that it is possible to e.g. tow a trailer behind the car.

If the car is equipped with a removable towbar, the installation instructions for the loose section must be followed carefully, see Detachable towbar* - attachment/removal.


If the car is fitted with a Volvo detachable towbar:

  • Follow the installation instructions carefully.
  • The detachable section must be locked with the key before setting off.
  • Check that the indicator window shows green.

Important checks

  • The towbar's towball must be cleaned and greased regularly.


The moving parts of the detachable towbar must not be lubricated/oiled. This may reduce safety.


When a hitch with a vibration damper is used, the towball must not be lubricated.

This also applies when fitting a bicycle rack that is clamped in around the towball.
