Load Bars For V70s with Rails Change @ 2008?

Post by packetfire » Mon May 23, 2016 8:34 pm

Apparently, "Type 3" V70/V70XCs, 2008 and up, have something different about the roof racks from 2001 - 2007?

Or is it merely a style difference, and all bars fit all side rails 2001-2013?


Compare:
http://www.myswedishparts.com/v70-2008- ... arent=1365
with:
http://www.myswedishparts.com/v70-2001- ... arent=1363

I ask because I have a 2004 with side rails, and I have come across some load rails that fit a 2008 v70XC.
Here is a photo of what is for sale, 100 miles away:

Here is a diagram from the assembly instructions that the seller got with the bars:

2001 v70 2.4T: The most expensive $1500 car I ever bought ("Volvo Turbo" - what an oxymoron!) (sold)
2004 v70: Current, far less fatally-flawed v70

If it helps, the two part numbers are:

31454721 for P2 cars (2001-2007)
30779107 for P3 cars (2008 and up)
1982 240DL: Drove it 32 years and 1.5 million miles (sold, even still had mint leather!)
2001 v70 2.4T: The most expensive $1500 car I ever bought ("Volvo Turbo" - what an oxymoron!) (sold)

They do look similar to the ones for the 2006 XC70 we have. Check the length of the bars as they may be different You could measure the distance between the 2 end covers )part # 4 in the blow up drawing above). Also check the profile of the rails to ensure they are the same to allow the bars to clamp correctly.
