Ah, that one. I have it, and use it now and then. I think it's very simple. Just lift it up and stow the bags there. I like it.

Mine is a Summum as well and one thing that Volvo are including as an 'upgrade' on that level, but I find totally useless and would gladly give up for a bit more storage, is that silly flap in the boot floor.

Of course the other thing I am still after is those aluminium brackets. Does anyone now if they are moulded into the rear trim or do they just clamp the trim to the chassis.
Sure those aluminium brackets are screwed into the car rather than just part of the trim.
Search of scrap yards on the cards?

Thanks Paul, that is what I was hoping. Back in sunny (!!) Wales in a couple of weeks time so will try some of my old favourites. Andy
