I've been to the dealership twice now and the parts guy has no clue what I'm talking about. I've also done a search but can't find any part number. Does anyone know the part number for the clip that holds the R emblem to the front grill? At the same time does anyone know if this clip will clip onto an Gen1 XC70 grill will little or no modifications?<p>Better yet, does anyone where I might be able to get a clip from somewhere else for cheaper?<p>I'm not looking for the R emblem, just the clip that attaches it to the egg crate grill.<p>TIA!

Re: Front R emblem clip part number (Barry)

If no one posts up by tonight when I get home, I can get you the part number. Unforunately the clip and the emblem are sold as a single unit, heat staked together. They are easy enough to seperate though. Please refer to the pic from my Ti emblem transfomation project below.<p><IMG SRC="http://groups.msn.com/_Secure/0VADjAtcXBNc20JZZJ0w8YkPNtsjKOruMOBJ0hkiPgq1mWy8lhv9g7V80EM1!jLxzwhIZH2iiXZ87gnyzfoMraxGP6yhHx2kgxXWI5kY0*UUTPx3TvIcgHmnSAuKKzC9B/IMG_1736.JPG?dc=4675566645414437051" BORDER="0">

Re: Front R emblem clip part number (Parts @ Boston Volvo)

Thanks for the replies guys, do you know if the clip would fit the XC grill from an earlier model XC?

Re: Front R emblem clip part number (Barry)

I have no clue Barry. That's why I posted the picture. I was hoping, based on that, you could do your own assesment.<p>I am almost sure it could be MODIFIED to fit, either by filing away, or gluing on material to make it fit snug and secure.

I'd like to hear if that can be done. right now I've got an XC grill on my old V70R. I'd like to have the new style R clip and add the takspeed sticker as I have on my '06R. Right now I have an R from IPD on the XC grill and it does OK but it's not as solid as the clip,

Here is what it means. It will fit into the XC Grill but the clips have nothing to attach to. This is because the older XC grill slats are wider than the new ones. You will need to each put holes into the older XC slat or tie it on so it's secure. It will fall out if you do not do this.<br>

My only problem with the lone R on an old XC grill is that it's not that sturdy. Only has the adhesive backing attached to the back part of the grill slats and if you slam the hood hard enough it can fall off. But it has been through the car wash and has sustained hood slams without falling off.

I have test fitted and ran into this problem. <p>If the weather is nice up here, it'll be my project. I'm thinking of putting some adhesive/clear caulk on the emblem before putting it on and securing it.
