Default 2012 XC90 spare wheel winch part number

Hi, would anyone know the correct part number for a 2012 XC90 space saver spare wheel winch.
I believe the winch securing bolt hole arrangement changed slightly around the 2011 model year and the earlier winch's will not fit.
I presently do not have a spare wheel and I am looking to retrofit a space saver and winch using used parts.
Any help appreciated on the above..
Dave

Hi Dave I retro fitted mine with bits off ebay for about £30. Spacesaver was an additional £35.https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volvo-XC9...kAAOSw50Vdv0eq

Reading this it does look like it changed which seems odd.

When you remove the winch blanking plate bolts it looks like you have to remove the rearmost seats to get it out and install the winch.

This is not the case even though you will see some info to say that it is!

All you need to do is remove a couple of the bolts from the seat rail with everything in situ and you can get the plate out and the winch in.

One point to remember is that if your XC has the twin exhausts ie one either side, I'm led to believe that a spare wheel will not fit.

If you do eventually get a second hand winch and want a photo of the bracket and bolts to remove, drop me a PM and I'll sort it

Many thanks, I only have the single side exhaust and going under the car it looks like there is mobs of room. I have now sourced a spare wheel, just trying to root out the correct winch assy. I believe around my MY date to the end of production time of the Mk 1 xc90 that Volvo also undertook a modification to the winch by adding a spring to stop the cable jams...

Looking at the shape of your blanking plate how does it compare to the winches advertised on Ebay?

I cannot imagine why they would change the pressing on the boot floor unless of course the new spring loaded winch was larger.

I've had no problem with my winch but I am aware of the potential jamming issue and as such always keep the cable under tension , never winding it back up empty.

When you fit the wheel and winch cable to the underside of the vehicle, spray everything with a rust preventing corrosion inhibitor lubricant to stop it all rusting up and seizing up. As often happens.
