    Exterior trim clips

    I need some new clips for the plastic trim piece that runs up the A pillar between the windscreen and the door frame on the Ph2 V70/S60.

    I know there are 2 different clips fitted on this part. Does anyone happen to know part numbers, and any alternative suppliers to Volvo dealers, or even if there's any cheeky alternatives like something from another marque/model or something universal that might fit?

    My trim is loose in the middle and moves about in the wind, and I'll need to totally remove it anyway to do some paint work (part of which is where the trim rubbing has rubbed away the paint on the A pillar).

    Guess I should have just googled first, DOH!

    Skandix have what I need:
    9190981 - need 1 per side
    30678009 - need 3 per side

    About 10 for the 4 clips, not bad. Probably at least double that if I go to the local dealer.

    Just ordered a couple of sets of those & all the other clips necessary to refit all the mouldings, the clips to fit the sill mouldings cost me 115 alone for the 42 required!
    Never thought of Skandix, damn!

    Scary eh?! Whilst looking on Skandix I was having a browse at the other trim bits they offer. The price of the bumper, side and sill trim (preFL, black textured) bits aren't excessive for what they are but it struck me that if you wanted to replace most of them or all of them, there are so many individual bits it would run in to the high hundreds! And that's not even factoring in all the clips!

    I've just paid 1442 for all the black mouldings & trim clips! That was with my trade discount too!

    For feck's sake. Bloody E18 to post a few clips that would fit in a small jiffy bag! Nae need!

    So cost of items 15 (4 clips plus the little rubber grommet that goes at the bottom of the A pillar). Total cost inc postage 31. Even if it's cheaper than anywhere over here in the UK, it really grates on me when postage costs are so crazy expensive.
