Ultimately, traded it in for a 2012 Chrysler Town & Country Touring L. I had three estimates on the work, and the cost-benefit analysis demonstrated keeping the Volvo wasn't "worth" it. Considering the negative equity incurred by repairs, and that the car didn't meet my needs even with positive equity, it really was just time to let it go.

It appears you can get the rebuild kit. See this. Something like that may be available in Europe/UK. It says the kit contains: complete gasket set, friction set, sealing rings, and metal clad seals.

You'll probably want to use some painter's tape (the blue stuff) to keep the trim in place while it cures. If it's a leading edge (appears to be so), make sure you have the tape covering the point of the trim so the wind won't try ...

Those scratches cannot be taken out using WD-40. It's a very good cleaner and lubricant, but is not a magic panacea for fixing paint scratches. You may be able to take it to a body shop where they would have to strip the bumper and repaint it (could possibly blend the area through sanding and repaint as well). They'd have to make the call on that. If the ...
