Default Volvo Detachable towball question

I have recently acquired a xc70 2006 D5
It has a Volvo towbar fitted but I cannot find the detachable towball anywhere in the car.

I went to Volvo to see if they still supplied and they did not.
I am now searching for another towball.
Would any Volvo detachable towball fit?

Or are the towball specific to the bar they are fitted for.

As a last resort I would swap the complete bar off my v70xc as it has a fixed neck.
Who said Volvos were build to last?

Not sure if you got this sorted or not but i was looking for a new ball for my 05 v70 and the volvo dealer advised it was still available. Nearly 300 though! ouch. Cheaper with a new towbar.
