1981 Volvo DL, GL and GLT
Long load storage, 4 door model
A flap in the rear seat makes it possible to carry "long loads" such as skis, etc. Protective covers (for
skis) should also be used to avoid soiling or tearing the upholstery. Please note that the flap in the rear
seat is intended only for light loads such as skis, wood etc.
Max. length of load 6 1/2 ft = 2 m.
Max. weight of load 33 lbs = 15 kg.
When braking rapidly the load could be displaced and cause injury to occupants. Sharp edges on the
load should be covered for protection. It is essential that the "load" be secured safely. Use belts
locked around the folded down armrest (see illustration).
To open the hood
Pull the release handle (located under the left side of the dash).
Lift the hood slightly, insert a hand under the center line of the hood and depress the safety catch handle.
Open the hood.
Check that the hood locks properly when closing.
