The lift up rear door on the XC is made of fiberglass, I found today, if anyone is interested. Why?

Lighter weight to make it easier to pull down is what my dealer told me.<P>Another possible reason would be to reduce strain on the hydraulics?<P>Also, with respect to the hatch, I really wish the window would open, but was told it's sealed in order to increase rigidity.<BR><P>

It's plastic on all the 2001+ V70s (meaning not just the XC)<P>Couldn't tell you why, but I was plenty happy about it when I began drilling through it to mount my wing.<P>- Darell
