Safety grille*

Updated 7/23/2018

The safety grille prevents loads or pets in the cargo area from being thrown forward in the passenger compartment.

The safety grille is crash-tested in accordance with the ECE R17 legal requirement and fulfils Volvo's strength requirements.

For safety reasons, the safety grille must always be attached and anchored correctly.


Under no circumstances may anybody remain in the cargo area while the car is moving. This is to avoid injury in the event of heavy braking or an accident.


Before first installing the safety grille, the existing plastic roof mountings must be replaced with steel roof mountings. Volvo recommends that replacing roof mountings is performed at an authorised Volvo workshop or dealer.

Fold the rear seat's backrest forward.

Make sure that the safety grille is turned in the right direction. Lift in the safety grille through one of the rear side doors.
