Check the latch on the tail gate.

Seriously.

Volvo tail gate latches tend to go with age; mine -- and mine's only 12 years old -- has a broken spring, so you've got to reset it with a piece of wire before it'll latch shut again after you open the gate. (It'd cost me about £ 150 to get it replaced, which is why I don't bother -- it still works, it's just a bit fiddly.)

There's a guy here in Portland who makes the replacement for the fiddly bit for the old 1960s tailgate latches, apparently, so this problem has existed for a very long time....heh. Thanks for the tip!

I'm personally more inclined for muscle cars of that era... however, the 122 is supah sweet.
Jay Lake needs toys.
