2007 Volvo V70 WARNING! The VIC system is a supplement to the Side Impact Protection System. It is not designed to deploy during collisions from the front or rear of the vehicle or in rollover situations. Never try to open or repair any components of the VIC system. This should be done only by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician. WARNING! In order for the VIC to provide its best protection, both front seat occupants and both outboard rear seat occupants should sit in an upright position with the seat belt properly fastened; adults using the seat belt and children using the proper child restraint system. Only adults should sit in the front seats. Children must never be allowed in the front passenger seat. See page 30 for guidelines. Failure to follow these instructions can result in injury to the vehicle occupants in an accident. pg. 26 Safety Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS) Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS) - front seats only The WHIPS system consists of specially designed hinges and brackets on the front seat backrests designed to help absorb some of the energy generated in a collision from the rear (when the vehicle is "rear-ended"). In the event of a collision of this type, the hinges and brackets of the front seat backrests are designed to change position slightly to allow the backrest/head restraint to help support the occupant's head before moving slightly rearward. This movement helps absorb some of the forces that could result in whiplash. file:///K|/ownersdocs/2007/2007_V70/07v70_01.htm (19 of 38)12/30/2006 5:49:26 PM
