Hi

I just ordered and received a OEM rubber cargo mat from Volvo at a super price but when l put into the cargo area the rear driver's side didn't fit properly.

Is the rear (cargo area) different with the third row seats then without them.

The driver's side rear panel is the problem.

No there is no difference between with and without the 3rd row seat.

No sure why it doesn't fit.

Have you tried calling and asking them why it won't fit?

Ok, Tech that sounds about right. Now what if the side panel (carpeted one that appears to go over the wheel well0 which is called Panel left #9478070 was taken out of an earlier model like a 2000 v70 and put in the same position.

Keep in mind when l picked up the V70 there were three parts that were beige instead of lt taupe or oak? Remember l bought this on auction sight unseen. The Panels fit perfectly only the color was wrong.

Could the shape be different?

Just a question.

Thanks

Hi Tech

Tonight on the way to dinner l stopped by my volvo dealership and scoped out the wagons that he had on his lot.

It is definitely not a 2000 or older part for sure.

What l did notice is that all of the 2001 to 2004 v70 had the side panel that was flat with the floor instead of a 2" ledge.

But l did see a 2001xc with the same ledge so l will call on monday and see if it has the 3rd row seats.

I also checked out ebay and saw third row seats that had both panels without the ledge.

Trying to download a picture of the ledge. It is the beige sections.

Hi

I answered my own question today by taking out the side panel and looking under it.
The reason for the ledge is because the 10 CD changer is there and it needs the head room.

I will have to cut off the side panel to the mat to make it fit.

If a person has the third row seat he wouldn't need a cargo cover.
