Chassis maintenance
To simplify maintenance, your Volvo has been equipped with ball joints, steering rods and propeller
shafts that do not require regular lubrication.
Points that normally require lubricating have been packed with very durable grease at the factory and
then carefully sealed, eliminating the need for subsequent lubrication.
Lubricate body
To avoid rattles and unnecessary wear, the body should be lubricated once a year. Hinges on hood, doors
and trunk lid as well as door stops should be lubricated every 7,500 miles.
During winter, locks in the doors and trunk lid should be treated with special anti-freeze lubricant to
prevent freezing.
