Parcel shelf not fitting

Post by T-roc » Tue Sep 10, 2019 5:28 pm

Just collected my 2019 r-line 2weeks ago( one previous owner) but parcel shelf has bulged at sides and does not stay in retaining clips. I have contacted the dealer and he has said that he will replace it with one from another car and send mine away on warranty. I have seen the other posts and was wondering if a new design has been made and available rather than getting the same problem again.
All the best- Steve

Nope - sorry to disappoint. Nothing changed that I'm aware of, still the same design. It could do with being updated I'll agree.

I just visually check mine now every time before closing the tailgate.

News on what? The parcel shelf design etc hasn't changed since the car was released. In a year I've never had an issue with my parcel shelf, those that have have had them replaced under warranty.

Like Hawkeye, I haven't had any problem with my parcel shelf in 9 months of ownership.

However, I may have had a lucky escape in the recent gales when the wind lifted the already raised parcel shelf towards the top of the glass as I was closing the boot lid. Had I not noticed, this would have prevented the shelf coming down normally and it may have got trapped and bent as the boot lid came down. I wonder if something similar has happened to those who have had a problem.
