    Am closing in on the purchase of a 2000 V70 XC, and have had the Dealer go
    over it to identify the larger issues.....

    I noticed that the retractable cargo net / tonneau cover is in two pieces,
    predicated by the 60:40 split rear seats. I see the outboard mounts where
    these attach both vertically and near the liftgate, but cannot figure out
    how they are held/supported where the two met...

    Is there some form of clip/gadget that connects the two when "deployed?

    Confused in Halifax (NS),

    You first pull up the longer right side, hook it in the right site bracket.
    There's a rod inside the right net, that is pulled out, then attached to the
    left side bracket. You can then pull up the shorter left side and clip it
    over the extended part of the rod.

    Hope this solves the problem.... Cam

    Thanks for the solution, eh?

    Knew I was missing some engineering feat...

    Yup, them Swedes are a crafty lot! Sometimes the simplicity and
    practicality of their design is not fully understood by others. I guess 35+
    years of exposure helps in my instance.

    Hope you thoroughly enjoy your XC - I've owned 3 so far. Seriously inspect
    the AWD transfer coupling and make sure there's no free play in the
    driveshaft - these are expensive to replace. I normally recommend buying
    the extended warranty, especially on any pre-Haldex AWD cars.

    Best of luck... Cam
