How To Improve The Look And Function Of Your Early Model P2 Volvo Wipers
If you own a pre-2005 Volvo P2 chassis model, simply put, your wipers can use an upgrade. The wipers on your car use the earlier outdated "frame" style wipers which typically use a frame structure and have a hook at the end used to secure the wiper blades to the wiper arm. These blades typically are less flexible and also less appealing to the eye.
The later style blades are used on the 2005+ model years and use a frameless design. This style has no metal material on the blades themselves which allows for a more flexible blade that fits the contour of the windshield better. The result is a cleaner, more precise wipe with a more modern and unique look.
You can find the wiper upgrade kit on our site HERE which can be applied to 2001-2004 model year S60's, V70's, XC70's, S80's, and XC90's. Additionally, check out our installation video which can be viewed below:
