Control unit. Towbar hitch.

Part Number: 31454602
Supersession(s): 31373945

A towing device especially developed for the North American market. It is easy to remove the ball section by removing a pin. This makes room for Volvo's tow hitch mounted accessories.
Each Volvo towbar has been designed for your Volvo. They are an integral part of the car's body and have been tested to ensure that they meet the most stringent safety and function demands.
The towbar is equipped with Volvo's Trailer Stability Assist-technology (TSA) and interacts with your Volvo's DSTC-system(Dynamic Stability and Traction Control.). If the trailer starts to sway back and forth at speeds in excess of 30 mph (50 km/h), TSA can brake one or more wheels to regain stability and maintain control.
The towbar consists of three main parts: crossmember, ball holder and a 2 diameter ball. The car is prepared for installation in the bodywork. The towbar comes complete and ready to be installed.
The towbar is treated in several stages to provide the best protection for corrosion resistance.
The trailer module manages the electronic communication between the vehicle and trailer.

The towbar is tested for the maximum towing weight and towball load, but depending on the car version, it may be lower. For precise information, see the car's owner's manual or contact your local Volvo dealer.
