In 98-00 V70's and probably 850's and newer wagons there is this gray carpet that covers the spare tire.<br><B>In a 3rd seat wagon this serves as the footwell cover</B> and can become very dirty.<br>If yours is, go to Home Depot. They have an almost exact match, same thickness carpet (slightly darker) for $4.00 a yard.<br>Buy a small piece, use a sharp box cutter, stay off an airplane, <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> (sorry, bad joke), cut to fit and install.<br>Instead of buying a replacement piece from Volvo which is an absurd $140 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> you can have a new good looking piece back there for about $12.00 and 15 minutes of your time.<br>(Looks great BTW)<br>JRL

Or, you can lay a pair of rubber backseat floor mats like mine over that carpet... they have pictures of Pooh on them <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><br>
