Rear number plate bulb holder

Post by Tommo » Thu May 16, 2019 6:38 pm

Just got home and noticed the two screws that hold the rear number plate light and camera assembly in place have both broken away and left the assembly hanging loose from under the tailgate, hoping this is going to be sorted under warranty so if anyone else has come across this issue would you please let me know so it can be seen as a quality issue and not user damage when I go into my local Volvo dealer

Again

Same happened to me 2 weeks ago.
Service will replace it.
Its a quality issue knowned by Volvo long ago.
For me, the screws are to much tighten and vibration brakes the plastic part.
My car is from begin of 2019
Worst is that you can see how easy is to steal the entire part, camera included...

Well must say top marks to Riverside Volvo in Doncaster, called them mid morning to report the broken bulb/camera assembly and they managed to source the new part and fit it this afternoon, lovely change to get first class service 🙂

Had mine replaced this week too... new design shows screws are much more visible. If you haven't had the fault keep a couple of tie wraps in the car and fix to the adjacent holes in case it happens to you.
