I purchased a rear skid plate for my '02 V70 XC, part number 8685762. It is described as a rear skid plate for "square" receiver hitches. Please post pictures of your rear skid plate for "round" receiver hitches, part number 9496986.<p>I do not have a hitch, and dislike the large cut-out in the "square" skid plate to accomodate such a hitch.<BR><BR>

Great photo! That is the "square" variety, #8685762. See how the notch to accomodate the receiver hitch comes up real high? On the rear skid plate for round (Euro-spec) receiver hitches, that notch does not come up as high, and therefore is not as noticeable from the back of the car. For those who do not intend to install a hitch at all, the "round" variety (#9496986) is much more attractive.

It's gotta be. That car was owned by Volvo, basically a fully loaded ORE XC70, that they keep in the press pool.
