2007 Volvo V70
Paint repairs require special equipment and skill. Contact your Volvo retailer for any extensive damage.
Make sure you have the right color. When ordering touch-up paint from your Volvo retailer, use the
paint code indicated on the model plate (1 in the illustration above).
Minor stone chips and scratches
Primer - can
Paint - touch-up pen
If the stone chip has not gone down to the bare metal and an undamaged color coat remains, you can
add paint immediately after removing dirt.
NOTE: When touching up the vehicle, it should be clean and dry. The surface temperature should be
above 60° F (15° C).
Minor scratches on the surface
If the stone chip has not penetrated down to the metal and an undamaged layer of paint remains, the
touch-up paint can be applied as soon as the spot has been cleaned.
- Place a strip of masking tape over the damaged surface. Pull the tape off so that any loose flakes of
paint adhere to it.
- Thoroughly mix the primer and apply it with a small brush. When the primer surface is dry, the paint
can be applied using a brush. Mix the paint thoroughly; apply several thin paint coats and let dry after
- If there is a longer scratch, you may want to protect surrounding paint by masking it off.
