Towing vehicles with front wheel drive/All Wheel Drive

Towing vehicles with front wheel drive/All Wheel Drive  - Towing - Starting and driving - Volvo XC90 Owners Manual - Volvo XC90

Volvo recommends the use of flat bed equipment.

If wheel lift equipment must be used, please use extreme caution to help avoid damage to the vehicle. In this case, the vehicle should be towed with the rear wheels on the ground if at all possible.

If it is absolutely necessary to tow the vehicle with the front wheels on the ground, please refer to the towing information on the previous page.

CAUTION
Х Sling-type equipment applied at the front will damage radiator and air conditioning lines.
Х It is equally important not to use slingtype equipment at the rear or apply lifting equipment inside the rear wheels; serious damage to the rear axle may result.
Х If the vehicle is being towed on a flat bed truck, the towing eyelets must not be used to secure the vehicle on the flat bed. Consult the tow truck operator.
