I bought my P8 on Sunday and took one look at the frunk and thought, this is small, can I make this a little bigger?

The answer is yes, a little.

The styrofoam tray is held in by two screws. I removed the screws and the foam tray and liner and put them on the shelf.

I relocated the tire slime, pump and tow hook to the cavity under the trunk floor next to the jack along with all of my road supplies.

Looks nice and clean now.

How many inches did you gain removing it? Yes I could measure my car but it’s a ways away at the moment :)

cheers

Thank you. This will happen post haste. BTW, too bad Volvo did not put an electric lock on the Frunk as Tesla does. Then when you approach the car you could open it. We usually do a Costco "run" with my Tesla X and people stop and stare when I pop open the Frunk to put the groceries in there.

Do you think a temporary spare tire would fit in there?
Not from just removing the foam tray. I haven't tried removing the entire liner yet. I suspect that my curiosity will get the best of me and I will remove that to take a peak at some point.

I LIKE IT! I need to take another look....all I did was removed the "divider", placed a heavy duty towel over it, and placed bottles of water and bug out bag. I DID not explore further everything underneath beyond that.

Interesting!!! Thanks for sharing.

The perspective makes it look like there'd be no room for the "Frunk", so now I'm going to have to have a look for myself, which I've intended to do and never gotten around to.
Yeah, it's not the best angle. It was sent to me by my service rep as they tear apart my P8 trying to get my AC working- I haven't actually seen it in person.

There's a bit more coolant hose than I'd like to see, but it's better than the Mach-E.

The mach-e you tube tear down was scary. So many hoses. As yiu said though this is more complex than I had hoped/dreamt. I wonder what a Tesla looks like on its latest versions?

Wish we had an electric release for the frunk, it's all but useless aside from holding the jack, emergency supplies up there. Read up on it, they put the divider up front as there is no emergency release tab and a child could easily get trapped.
