2007 Volvo V70 WARNING! The SIPS airbag system is a supplement to the structural Side Impact Protection System and the three-point seat belt system. It is not designed to deploy during collisions from the front or rear of the vehicle or in rollover situations. The use of seat covers on the front seats may impede SIPS airbag deployment. No objects, accessory equipment or stickers may be placed on, attached to or installed near the SIPS airbag system or in the area affected by SIPS airbag deployment. Never try to open or repair any components of the SIPS airbag system. This should be done only by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician. In order for the SIPS airbag to provide its best protection, both front seat occupants should sit in an upright position with the seat belt properly fastened. Failure to follow these instructions can result in injury to the occupants of the vehicle in the event of an accident. pg. 25 Safety Volvo Inflatable Curtain (VIC) This system consists of inflatable curtains located along the sides of the roof liners, stretching from the center of both front side windows to the rear edge of the rear side door windows. It is designed to help protect the heads of the occupants of the front seats and the occupant of the outboard rear seating positions in certain side impact collisions. In certain side impacts, both the Inflatable Curtain (VIC) and the Side Impact Airbag System (SIPS-bag) will deploy, whereas, in some cases, only the Inflatable Curtain (VIC) will deploy. In cases where both the VIC and the SIPS-bag deploy, this will occur simultaneously. NOTE: If the inflatable curtain deploys, it remains inflated for approximately 3 seconds. file:///K|/ownersdocs/2007/2007_V70/07v70_01.htm (18 of 38)12/30/2006 5:49:26 PM
