P80 tailgate repair kit
 
I've tried a couple of these kits from ipd and fcp but they never last long. If the cover has to come off you can kiss a few of the plastic clips goodbye. Did any company ever produce a sturdier set of fasteners for the tailgate cover?

I haven't looked at their kits, but, are they the same thing that Volvo has? The Volvo kit has metal reinforcement pieces.

It's the plastic bits that pop into those metal reinforced holes I have issues with.

You are doing it wrong...

You unclip the bottom edge of the panel, those smaller clips (4) do sometimes break. Then you slide the panel upward and the big clips slide out of the door frame and stay attached to the panel. You then give the big clips a 1/4 turn and slip them out of the panel, insert the clips, the correct way back into the door frame, do what you came here to do, and you are now set to gently re-engage the panel into the clips once everything is lined up. ZERO palm-bashing required, when everything is right. Make sure your GENUINE STABILUS support "shocks" are up to snuff too, the #2 reason the panels get wasted.
