I have a 2013 CC with a volvo removable tow bar which I believe is made by Brink. Hope the photos will help you.

Thanks Jigsaw

the cover plate and the attachment on it look exactly like mine

I will start the eBay search and get on to brink

Will also try to contact the previous owner to see if they still have it !,

thanks again

Hope you manage to find one, I bought my car from a volvo dealer last year and the tow bar was already on so I only had to buy the cover plate from volvo parts. I would think it's likely the tow bar is common to other car makes, good luck.

Just been on the brink website ..... it states that they don’t make one for the cross country !!!!

Don’t know why the previous owner didn’t leave it with the car .... but there you go ...... and none on eBay ,,,

Independent or mobile tow bar fitters can be good for spares if you have any nearby, it also locks in place so should be supplied with 2 keys.

Have you looked in the boy might be hidden under the false floor especially if you have the split level boot

Hello Jigsaw,

You bought your cover platen from Volvo Parts. Which one? And where are these guys locaties? Of you don't mind me asking.

I ordered the cover from www.volvoparts.tmsmotorgroup.co.uk and they ship worldwide. Just search for detachable towbar bumper cover, there are 2 types for the V40.

if the bar is fitted, you need to identify the manufacturer, there should be some data on a sticker to assist, but may be obscured by the lower spoiler? once identified, you can look for the replacement neck

Thule tow bars were made by Brink in Holland, they were acquired by Thule in 2006 but went back to the Brink brand name in 2016. It is likely they don't list the V40 because they are sold through Volvo.

Cheers Jigsaw

they do list the V40 but it’s says excluding the cross country. I’ve spoken with the parts guy at my local volvo dealer to see if they are still available
