alright, I took my car to the Volvo dealership, and they denied replacing the defective moldings under warrenty... now as I understand it, the original owner has to make the claim, but how am I supposed to do this, when i bought the car from a dealership, I would doubt that they would lend out any private information.... so, what am I supposed to do about this? should I call Volvo and complain??

Re: defective side moldings (myVolvoS60T5)

sorry JRL, i tried deleting it, but it said that I can't because it was the first post of the topic.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>the moldings on the doors, and rear bumper, (not the front bumper, as I got it replaced from an accident) keep hazing white... I read on some threads that it was a manufacturing defect on the '01s....

If I'm not mistaken there was a thread a while back about a liquid you cna apply to the black moldings and they will be black again.

Again, what do you mean by "defective" <br>I'll try to help, but I have no idea what you're talking about

Re: defective side moldings (JRL)

The only moldings that are truly defective are the roof strips on the 01's, they completely fade out, all of them<br>If you asked (when the car was under warranty) they would have been replaced under warranty

Re: defective side moldings (JRL)

mine do that to but I can usually rub most of it out when I wash the car and then I get rid of the rest of it with some kind of Armor All based product. It's gonna fade over time as the UV rays from the sun shine on it. Alot of the products made for plastic moldings actually deflect UV rays.
