There is a box behind the trunk door, which I thought it belongs to the warning triangle.


Volvo recommends part # 30673258 for the new XC90

Today I tried part # 30673259, which is too big for the box behind the trunk door.

Does anybody know:
- Is this box really for the warning triangle?
- If so, is 30673258 really smaller than 30673259 that it will fit into this box?

I know, it sounds like I have a lot of free time :)
thanks

This is great. I've wanted to fill this with the right gear.
Maybe someone who has taken euro delivery could answer if there are any other components in this spot?

There was discussion on this some months ago. Apparently that part is supplied in Europe (and perhaps elsewhere) but not in North America.

It is sad that such a cheap part (which is a 100% related to safety) is not supplied in North America

When my sales rep was going over my new vehicle, he showed us the box on the back door and said he wasn't sure what it exactly was for, but he understood it was for something coming in the near future--but there's the box for it.

Looks like it might fit a light saber ... :saber:

No, you just made a great observation. For the most safety conscious auto manufacturer to charge us thirty bucks for a hazard triangle that is mandatory in Europe is just plain super cheap. Kia, maybe. Volvo, no.

What happens for OSD vehicles? You MUST carry a triangle when driving in Sweden.

Yes, the triangle is present during OSD, cannot tell you if still present when arriving in the US... Still waiting for ours! :-(

I remember watching [the British version] of Top Gear and they were always poking fun at the French. Seems there it is the law that you must carry in your vehicle at all times a reflective safety triangle, flares, and a high visibility safety vest to wear in case your vehicle breaks down.

Many countries in EU require the triangle and a safety vest.

Just having some fun with your post and my kids sabers, lol.

If you pick up your XC-90 via overseas delivery, Volvo supply you with a safety triangle. Mine was already installed when I picked the car up in Gothenburg. I was half expecting it to be removed before the car was shipped to California, but it was still there.

So does anyone have a link where we can order one? Seems like a smart thing to have in an emergency.

Thank you all.
We are all learning and also having fun.
Can somebody with the triangle please confirm the part number and maybe post a pic?

I want to keep this thread active. Can a European member post a pic of the warning triangle and the part number (if possible)?
thanks

Thank you very much.
It's really thinner than part # 30673259.
