Here's a problem I haven't seen mentioned anywhere: The little triangular piece of trim on the exterior of the back window popped off while opening the door.

I don't see any visible differences between the left side (where this occurred) and the right side of the car. Can't figure out why this would have happened. Has anyone encountered this?

I noticed mine popping on the rear drivers side last week, seems the door weather stripping is catching it. Not doing it on the rear passenger.

I have a service appointment Tuesday to look at it but right now I keep pressure on it if I have to open it.. pretty much only the dog uses the back seat.

Looks like few of the tabs that holds it broke? Did you bring this to the dealer and they have to fix something close to that section? Maybe they broke it. The technician lost some of our clips that holds the frunk cover. :mad::mad:

I noticed my c40 had some clips missing in the frunk cover too but I haven't taken it to the dealer so I'm guessing it came like that from the factory.

It does look like some tabs broke. No idea how that could have happened -- the car is (obviously) pretty new, hasn't been driven much, no work has been done on it since bringing it home. Somehow, the weather stripping must have caught on it and popped it off, breaking the tabs.

I was going to mention this myself! That piece catches on our driver's side (UK right-hand-drive) when you open the door and I'm concerned it'll eventually wear down and come off. Clearly a design flaw and one to add to the snag list for Volvo I think!

Do you uses an automated car wash? If so, just wondering if that might be how this happened.

The car had not been through a car wash; there had been no impact to car, no explanation I can imagine. The back door has probably been opened and closed fewer than 20 times during our ownership of it. It seems to just be badly made?
