Various jobs on the Volvo C30 require the rear wheel liners to be removed. In this article, I'll go over the steps involved with removing the wheel liners. Begin by jacking up the rear of the car and placing it on jack stands. See our article on Jacking up Your C30 for more information. Next remove the front wheels.

Shown here is the rear wheel liner installed on the Volvo C30.

Shown here is the rear wheel liner installed on the Volvo C30. Removal is easy and should take no more than 10 minutes for each side. Begin by removing the six T25 Torx screws (green arrows).

Remove the two 10mm plastic nuts (green arrows) on either side of the shock absorber.
