Fitting details for wiper blades vary according to model, and according to whether genuine Volvo wiper blades have been fitted. Use the procedures and illustrations shown as a guide for your car.
Check the condition of the wiper blades; if they are cracked or show any signs of deterioration, or if the glass swept area is smeared, renew them. Wiper blades should be renewed annually.
Two different types of wiper blades may be fitted. On the first type, pull the arm fully away from the glass until it locks. Swivel the blade through 90°, press the locking tab (arrowed) with your fingers and slide the blade out of the arm’s hooked end.
On the second type, pull the arm fully away from the glass until it locks, then squeeze together the retaining clips and pull them away from the blade, then slide the blade from the end of the arm. Don’t forget to check the headlight wiper blades as well. To remove the blade, lift the arm and simply pull the blade out of the arm fitting. Push the blade firmly home to refit.
