I need the clipnuts or whatever the screws go into, to hold my splash guard up. It's down to 3 screws, and there are supposed to be about 7. <p>I searched myswedishparts, partsforvolvos, and parts .com. Anyone know before I take a lunchbreak to drive to the volvo dealer for something I could order online and save the trips?

Re: Where can I buy clips for my under-engine splash guard? (mattdoc)

Sorry, I am of no help here but am also interested in this. Mine got messed up when I hit a huge ice chunk that fell off of a semi (on a road trip) and I lost most of the screws/clips. I have all the other spots attached via zip ties, works very well and was super cheap. I would like to get the correct clips though...

That's a good idea, just to secure it until I get clips. I won't really need to take it off until my fall oil change, but if I do, well, they're zipties.

Re: (mattdoc)

Exactly, and you can clip off the excess so it looks pretty decent: how often do people actually look at that part of the car anyway?

Re: (carreragt7)

Called my dealer, they said it is 70 cents each screw (5x20 screw whatever that means) and it takes 7. Special order. Part number is 998164 supposedly, but I don't like my local dealer as they are idiots so I would check this info at another dealer before ordering anything...

Re: (Kallvin22)

When ive looked up the screws in the past they arent offered anymore. They are listed as a bolt and a nut no longer the screw and plastic inserts. Im not sure what its all about but we havent been able to get any replacements. When people strip them out we end up just using oversized standard screws with washers... sucks.

Re: (ForceFed Motorsports)

I think one of my plastic inserts was stripped out at the factory, first oil change it wouldn't tighten. I've wandered around the hardware section at my local hardware store (They have an absolutely Fantastic hardware selection) until I found something a bit longer & larger diameter and grabbed a stainless fender washer (small hole, large OD) to fit for the two I have now that are stripped. Two screws and two washers were something like Two Bucks. <p> There's actually a special thread form made by a company called Placon for threading into platic if You can find them. They have a large coarse thread and a smaller shallower thread in between and the threads are at more of a pitch so they tighten with fewer turns.

As long as we are on the subject, does anyone know where I can get two of these funky carpet retainers? This one has worked it's way loose and I can't even find the other one. <p><IMG SRC="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b143/geebis/polaroid.jpg" BORDER="0">
