Default 240 spare tire securing strap

The strap that held the spare tire in the back of my 240 wagon has cracked and torn from age. Can anyone recommend a replacement, it seems to just be a flat rubber strapping that I could fit into the same buckles. Anyone have a material to recommend?

I wish any of my cars where nice enough to spend $16 on a tire strap
I normally just wedge it with the jack and call it a day

What year? The early strap (-'87) is available from VP.

The late strap ('88-) is still available from Volvo.

If you want to find just the rubber try McMaster Carr.

hiperfauto, thanks. Is the first part you linked definitely only for pre '88 240s? It looks like the one I have. What is the difference between that and the 2nd link? No image on the tascaparts linked part.

I don't know what the difference is, just that it calls for a different part number. I looked and couldn't find a pic anywhere either.

Okay, I don't know what that part is for but it's not for the spare tire. They all use 679199. My mistake.

Looks like the belt you referred to is used for the tool bag / pouch on various models (2/7/8/9)- it has the same part number on all of them, no 4.

And #14 which is what I saw in the late 240 catalog and mistook for the spare tire strap.
