Water and dirt-repellent coatingUpdated 23/07/2018
The windows are treated with a surface coating that improves visibility in difficult weather conditions.
Water and dirt-repellent coating*
There is natural wear of the water-repellent coating.
- Never use products such as car wax, degreaser or similar on glass surfaces as this could ruin their water-repellent properties.
- Take care when cleaning so as not to damage the glass surface.
- To avoid damaging glass surfaces when removing ice – only use plastic ice scrapers.
- Treatment with a special finishing agent available from Volvo dealers is recommended in order to maintain the water-repellent properties. This should be used first after three years and then each year.
Do not use a metal ice scraper to remove ice from the windows. Use the heating to remove ice from the door mirrors; see Windows and rearview and door mirrors - heating.
