WARNING WARNING

Eye injury may occur if any of the following points are not followed:

  • It is essential that all pertinent instructions be followed when handling laser instruments. Testing, repairing, removing, adjusting and/or replacing any components in the laser sensor may only be done by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.

  • The laser sensors connector must be disconnected before the sensor is removed from the windshield.
  • The laser sensor must be mounted in place on the windshield before connecting the sensors connector.
  • Do not view the laser sensor (which emits spreading, invisible laser beams) with optical instruments from a distance of less than 4 inches (100 mm).
