A steering wheel is the main way to control steering in vehicles. It is an essential part of any car. If you are a driver, you want to know how to use it well. Read on to learn more about how to adjust the Volvo steering wheel!

Function Of A Steering Wheel

A steering wheel connects to the system that controls the direction of a vehicle. It converts the rotational movements and commands of a driver into the movements of the vehicle's front wheels. The driver's movement will pass through a series of hydraulic lines and joints in the steering system. It ultimately reaches the rubber wheels as they move along the road. The modern steering wheels have accessory functions built in too, such as cruise control, volume control and audio system selection. Some steering wheels may even be heated electrically.

Steering Wheel Adjustment

Over the years, there are many approaches used to change the positioning and angle of steering wheels. Although the purpose of steering wheels is the same, there are differences in ease of adjustability, comfort and style.

How To Adjust The Volvo Steering Wheel

The steering wheel can be adjusted into different positions. Remember to adjust the steering wheel first before starting the car and driving away. The steering force can be changed with speed related power steering. The steering force is regulated depending on the speed of the car so as to give the driver improved road responsiveness.

Here are the steps to adjusting the Volvo steering wheel:

  • Push the level forwards in order to release the steering wheel.
  • Then adjust and shift the steering wheel into the right position that fits you.
  • Pull the lever backwards to fix the steering wheel into position. If you find the lever is stiff, try pressing the steering wheel lightly as you move the lever back.

Adjusting the steering wheel can be a simple thing to do and yet make a huge difference. If you find that the steering wheel doesn't feel right, try adjusting it so that you can enjoy a more comfortable drive in your Volvo car.
