I kicked myself, that I didnít pick this up when I collected the car!
Parcel shelf has premature wear either side! Not sure why, also clip/ bracket was missing?!?
Anyone else had this, would it be a warranty matter?!?Click image for larger version

Re: Parcel Shelf Woes

Very strange, seems like a used one...
Too bad you did not see it, but the dealer should have seen it on delivery.

Re: Parcel Shelf Woes

Looks like the clips are missing and causing shelf to not clip onto side hence shelf squashed by tailgate.

Re: Parcel Shelf Woes

That sounds the most obvious explanation. My clips regularly come loose when the boot is too full and I could envisage if one was missing and the shelf was misaligned it would wear in this fashion.

Re: Parcel Shelf Woes

Yes and as per my recent post its also missing the rubber ends - mine have both ripped off so will be sourcing a couple under warranty. If its any consolation though - there's several used complete Parcel Shelfs on ebay for about £40 - less that I thought they would be...

Hello what do the rubber ends look like?!? Is it where there is premature wear!?

Re: Parcel Shelf Woes

Yes mate as they clip through those slots in your first photo - Sorry I haven't got a photo to hand but you can see the LH side one here -



I'll add the part number when I get around to calling in to my local dealer to get replacements ordered.

Re: Parcel Shelf Woes

I had a look at mine, both rubber bits are present. Strangely, they appear to be a slightly different shape on each side.
Easy to miss details like that when viewing a car Alex. Try to get something from the dealer, they are supposed to fix faults pre-existing at the time of sale for up to 6 months. Failing that, though, if you can get a replacement for £40 it's not the end of the world.

Re: Parcel Shelf Woes

Yes I have both of mine even though they ripped off - they are different on each side to fit and marked SX DX (In Italian left (sinistra) can be abbreviated as SX and right (destra) DX).

Re: Parcel Shelf Woes

Aye, lesson learnt & all that. I recently purchased a small workhorse car £30 tax bracket(garage) for getting about town, lots of stop/starts as a care worker, anyway I think I'm quite savvy & among other things noticed no parcel shelf present in car. Was told no problem this would be rectified. Trusting old git that I am, I managed to iron out things apart from the shelf! Today four months later I paid the garage a visit again, I'm bending the salesmans ear, I also had a wee chat with lovely young lady at reception about my tale, hey presto she came up with a shelf, result.

Sorry, this is of no help to OP.

Correct. For UK bods another easy way of remembering what SX and DX mean is:

DX = Driver's side (D for Driver)

Re: Parcel Shelf Woes

Well I visited by local Fiat dealer and they flatly refused to replace these under warranty - anything deemed as Internal trim falls under this apparently?!? Fairly naff for a 2 year old sub 20k car
I think I'll try to bond mine - they are £17 a side for a small lump of rubber!

Hello and sorry to dig this up.
Did you, by any chance, manage to identify the part number for these DX/SX clips?
Mine just broke as well (clearly a design error, if they break when you fill up the boot..).
