Brake pad inspection

Brake pad inspection  - Brakes - Your driving environment - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

On vehicles equipped with a jack*, the condition of the brake pads can be checked by raising the vehicle (see page 306 for information about using the jack and removing a wheel) and performing a visual inspection of the brake pads.

WARNING
Х If the vehicle has been driven immediately prior to a brake pad inspection, the wheel hub, brake components, etc., will be very hot. Allow time for these components to cool before carrying out the inspection.
Х Apply the parking brake and put the gear selector in the Park (P) position.
Х Block the wheels standing on the ground, use rigid wooden blocks or large stones.

WARNING
Х Use the jack intended for the vehicle when changing a tire. For any other job, use stands to support the vehicle.
Х The jack should be kept well-greased and clean, and should not be damaged.
Х Be sure the jack is on a firm, level, nonslippery surface.
Х No objects should be placed between the base of jack and the ground, or between the jack and the attachment bar on the vehicle.
Х The jack must correctly engage the jack attachment.
Х Never allow any part of your body to be extended under a vehicle supported by a jack.
