Hi, I just bought this cycle carrier and have fitted it to a Peugot 206.

To answer your question, no, you can't open the boot.

The rack is hung over the rear of the car using a dumb-bell type arrangement - the dumb-bells are inside the hatch of the car and the straps fall outside. With the boot closed, the weight of the rack will then pull the straps taught and tighten the dumb-bells against the seal/hatchback of the car. If you were to try to open the boot, this may pull the dumb-bells out of alignment and you would not be able to close the boot again. Also the lower straps connect to the chasis of the car (or tow hitch or similar) so that the rack is tightly mounted from top and bottom - these straps would have to be slackened to open the boot.

The instructions expressly say not to open the boot with the rack mounted.

If however you still are interested in the product, I would say that the rack can be quickly unmounted and re-mounted (possibly <10mins?) if you wished to access the boot. It is only a matter of slackening a few straps.

Dont know whether it will fit your car but mine is a Mazda TS2 2011 and even with a back spoiler, with a little adjustment, it still fits.

I have just fitted to an XC60 with a detachable tow bar so I do not see why it would not fit the XC90.

The Halfords Value Rear Low Mount 2 Cycle Carrier is unsuitable for your Volvo XC90 as is the case for all Halfords Rear Mount Cycle Carriers due to the horizontally split hatch. We advise the use of either a roofmount carrier (which requires roofbars) or if your vehicle has a towbar, then this type of carrier is also suitable but please check the nose-weight of your vehicle.

The member of staff who served us said they could fit the bike carrier for us for an additional charge but we decided against it. Easy to fit ourselves.

No unfortunately as the chassis points are unsuitable. You can use a roof or towball mounted carrier with this vehicle

Question
Will It Fit?
I have a 2008 Renault Laguna 3 with a long swan neck towball, so I cannot use a towball mounted carrier. Will your 2 bike rear mount carrier fit and be secure?
I had one many years ago on a Mondeo series1, and that was fine.

There are no Rear Mounted Bike Carriers that are suitable for a ford mk2 focus with a rear spoiler
We recommend a roof mounted cycle carrier for your car. Try the Halfords Advanced 2 Roof Mounted Cycle Carrier (Article Code 909788)
Suitable roof bars must be fitted to your car to allow roof mounted bike carriers to be fitted
