    pg. 95 Replacing fuses

    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 passenger compartment (see page 96) and in the engine compartment (see page 97).

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

    Never use fuses with higher amperage than those stated on the following pages. Doing so could overload the car's electrical system.

    *To be able to remove these fuses, you must FIRST PULL UP the yellow fuseholder (transport fuse) by hand and then use the special fuse tool to remove the fuse. See page 95.

    NOTE: Before you pull up the transport fuse holder, make sure that you know the radio code, since this code will be erased from the radio when pulling up the fuseholder!

    pg. 98 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.

    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.

    pg. 99 In case of emergency

    Shiftlock release

    The gear selector is locked in the (P)ark position. To manually release the shiftlock:

  • Set the parking brake.
  • Turn the starting (ignition) key to position I.
  • Press firmly on the "SHIFTLOCK OVERRIDE" button located at the base of the gear selector.
  • While holding the override button down, press the button on the front of the gear selector.
  • Move the selector from the (P)ark position.

    pg.100 In case of emergency

    Manually closing the moonroof
    To manually close the moonroof, use the socket wrench supplied in the tool kit (see page 86).

  • Remove the courtesy light lenses.
  • Undo the screws and remove the courtesy light cover.
  • Remove the cap from the screw with the screwdriver.
  • Remove the screw (1), washer (2), spacer(s) (3) and collar (4).
  • Turn the screwdriver back into the handgrip to make it into a socket wrench. Fit this onto the sun roof motor drive shaft and close the moonroof by turning clockwise.

    If you wind too far, the moonroof will move into the ventilator position. Rewind until the roof shuts again.
