pg. 93 Replacing fuses

Fuse removal tool in passenger compartment fuse box

Replacing fuses

If an electrical component fails to function, it is likely that a fuse has blown due to a temporary circuit overload.

The fuse boxes are located in the engine compartment (see page 94) and in the passenger compartment (see page 95).

A label on the inside of each cover indicates the amperage and the electrical components that are connected to each fuse.
Defective fuse Intact fuse

The easiest way to see if a fuse is blown is to remove it. Pull the fuse straight out. From the side, examine the curved metal wire to see if it is broken. If so, put in a new fuse of the same color and amperage (written on the fuse). Spare fuses are stored in the fuse box cover. If fuses burn out repeatedly, have the electrical system tested at a Volvo retailer. If you find it difficult to remove a fuse, you will find a special fuse tool clipped in the fuse box.

NOTE: If a trailer hitch has been installed, two supplementary fuses will be added to the cable harness near the right tail light.

pg. 96 Replacing wiper blades

Replacing wiper blades

Lift the wiper arm off the windshield and hold the blade at right angles to the arm. Pinch the end of the plastic clip located at the back of the arm.

Slide the wiper blade along the arm to release it from the hook.

Install the new blade (installation is the reverse of removal) and make sure that it is properly attached to the wiper arm.

NOTE: For reasons of safety, you should change the windshield wiper blades as soon as they start to leave marks on the windshield or fail to wipe efficiently and cleanly.

To obtain maximum lifetime from a set of wiper blades, clean them with a stiff-bristle brush and warm, soapy water as part of a normal car wash.

short end towards grille

Replacing headlight wiper blades (certain models)

Pull the wiper blade in the direction indicated by the arrow in the illustration to remove it. Press the new wiper blade into place. Check that the new blade is properly attached to the wiper arm.

Cleaning the outside of the windshield and wiper blades

If the windshield/tailgate is not clear after using the wiper(s) or if the blade chatters when running, wax or other material may be on the blade or on the surface of the glass.

Clean the glass with a suitable cleaning agent. The glass is clean if beads do not form when you rinse it with water.

Clean the wiper blade by wiping vigorously with a cloth soaked in full strength windshield washer solvent. Then rinse the blade with water.

Wiper blades should be checked on a regular basis and replaced when worn.
