Load carriers (accessory)

Load carriers (accessory)  - Starting and driving - Volvo XC90 Owners Manual - Volvo XC90

Positioning load carriers

If wing-shaped load carriers are used, make sure that they are installed on the roof rails with the rounded edge forward. Load carriers of this type are identical and can be placed anywhere along the roof rails.

When not in use, we recommend that the front load carrier be placed approximately 2 inches (5 cm) in front of the center roof rail anchorage point and the rear load carrier approximately 1.5 inches (3.5 cm) in front of the rear rail anchorage. This will help to reduce wind noise.

Installing load carriers

Make sure that the load carriers are pressed firmly out against the roof rail and securely tightened place. Check regularly that any load carriers are securely in place.

WARNING
Loads carried on the vehicle's roof should not exceed 220 lbs (100 kg), including the weight of the load carriers and any other load carrying equipment (ski boxes, bicycle racks, etc.). Excessive loads on the roof can adversely affect the handling and roadholding characteristics of the vehicle.
