Default Volvo (Thule) detachable towbar part sought

Hi.
The 2013 XC90 R Design that I recently bought has a Thule 'Volvo' branded towpack fitted. However, the detachable piece that should be in a bag in the boot area is not present. I didn't notice this when I bought the car.

The traders that I bought from have had no joy going back to the previous owner, so I need to source a replacement part.

Research suggests there were different 'factory fit' suppliers including Thule and Brink, plus other presumably aftermarket fits from Witter, etc.

I have emailed Thule to see if the part I need is available to buy on its own, and I'm waiting for a reply.

In the meantime, does anyone have such a thing for sale on here?

I've uploaded some photos of the parts that are fitted to the car, in case it helps with identifying the correct part that I need.

Thanks

From the state of the cuts on the trim it looks to me like a retro fit rather than a factory accessory.

In any case it's a Thule (obv)

There are various towbar specialists who "ought" to be able to help you...

Ended up buying new Brink/Thule tow ball (part number 9555201) through a local trader. 195 with the VAT, but at least I can use my trailer for dirty loads instead of the back of the car now.
