Tired of replacing broken plastic belly pans on your 200 series Volvo?
The stock plastic covers are known for a short life span, especially in colder climates where they become brittle and easily crack and shatter from minor impacts with road debris. They also commonly crack at the attachment points from repeated removal and replacement for basic maintenance. Several years ago, we saw a nicely fabricated aluminum version on Paul Grimshaw’s 240. (Paul is the author of 2 of our best selling Volvo owners books, “The Gothenberg Bible and “The Volvo Performance Handbook” ) We asked Paul about the skid plate and he told us that he had it built out of frustration with the stock plastic version. He has been using it for several years in the harsh Canadian winters and is very happy with the performance and utility it offers. We worked out a deal with Paul to use his design and make them available in a ready-to-bolt-on kit. Made of 1/8” aluminum plate, this will be the last one you’ll ever buy!
Some early models (75-80) have a welded tow hook at the passenger side front. This can interfere with the installation of skid plate, but can be overcome by simply using a few washers and a longer bolt in this location.
