Does this rack look like the rack for the S70?

Post by wrybread » Fri May 17, 2019 1:08 pm

I'm considering buying this rack from someone in another state, so trying to confirm that it will fit before he ships it out. Someone else looked at the pics and thought it might be for the S60, so I wanted to make sure.

Any thoughts?

I have to say no. The only screw on mine it to clamp between a rubber rack base on roof and a bracket that slides in the door jam at the alignment hole.

Take a look at the topic on Auction car '95 850 https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forum ... p?p=507743
There is a picture of the roof rack in the trunk. You can clearly see the base foot bracket that goes between the door.

Isn't there just one screw on this too?

I should say, this is the roof rack plus the bicycle carrier attachment.

And I'm not saying you're wrong, I don't really know what I'm looking at in each of these pics. But in these pics it looks like just one screw hole?

And I'm not seeing the trunk pics at that link or at the auction it links to. I'm guessing I'm missing something obvious tho.

Aha, thanks. Here's the pic of the rack from that auction. It does look different to me.

The Thule 400 XT base is what our model uses. Then can customize the bar lengths

MDK here... so.. the first picture is for 2001 -2007. V-70 without the eurorails. They say because of the curvature of the roof it might fit an S60 but the bars won't be parallel. last picture is 1995-2000 850.. S70 or V70 without the eurorails...
