      That part should be a service bulletin freebie fix I think. Weird design flaw.

      Very disappointing. Volvo should reimburse anyone who buys and installs them.

      Perhaps to try to contact Volvo Sweden, it will be interesting what they will answer

      Just installed a set on my 2018 XC60. There are 3 plastic nuts and a screw already on the car. Just loosen the nuts with your fingers and use the hex wrench that comes with the set for the screw n the bottom. Took all but 10 minutes to install. The bottom edge of the pieces have a gap of about 1/4" from the bottom of the door.

      Thanks - yes please upload some pics...

      I ordered the flat black for my Crystal White - after looking at the wheel well area, the black would blend in better and would be less noticeable...

      I may install mine later today if I have time, and will post the pics. At first glance, the quality looks good and the color matches the manufacturer (pine grey for mine).

      Looking forward to the pics. I have the Metallic Crystal White -- I'm curious to see if anyone has pics of those.

      Mine arrived yesterday afternoon. Well designed and constructed! A lot of thought and cost (mold development) has gone into developing these.

      I test fit the left side yesterday and it seems to fit okay. A bit of a gap at the bottom, but it is too cold out in my garage to properly install these (-15'c out) and I want to wash the wheel well area out before installing them as there is a lot of road salt and sand.

      I am glad I went with the black even though I have the metallic crystal white paint. The black blends in well into the wheel well - you cant really tell it is even there.

      I am really interested to see these once you've installed them. I haven't ordered any yet, but I wouldn't be able to install either -- it's too cold here. It's -19'c today. Like you, I'd want to wash out the area well, then protect it with some good wax/sealant. Looking forward to your pics spas1

      I drove on a muddy road yesterday, the red mud kind. Because of the posts here I checked out my car. Yep, the red mud was inside the back door on both sides. Before the mud hardened, I went to a car was where you spray the car yourself. When I got home I noticed that soap had not only seeped in the back door area, but it was under the seal at the bottom of the front doors.

      Installed, 5 minutes a side.

      It took about 5 minutes per side. There are three plastics nuts and one screw to remove and re-install. The fit is pretty good.

      Happy to help others visualize the outcome. The next test will be to see how much dirt they keep of the lower portion of the doors. I cleaned them, now only time will tell. The guards arrived in about 10 days.

      This is pine grey and I bought the protectors in the same color. The install took literally 5 minutes. I’ll see tomorrow if they do the trick.

      Also is it sturdy and functional enough to withstand two teenagers bumping into it getting in and out?
