You didn't let me finish my question. I was transferred to the paypal site in the middle ot typing. I paid promptly $34 and was told to wait for response from you.
Anyway, I've sent you a link:

My question was: is this the correct part. Can you please answer that?

I have no control over the site.......I just answer questions when I see them
Yes, that antenna Mast should work, but you should remove yours first to see which Nylon Strip you have as that matters

Please reread the Instructions I posted.

I'm not satisfied with that answer at all.
The link you provided is available from Volvo website for free and is not specific to the 2003 model.
I've just wasted $34. Low price for being stupid.
I rate this answer 1 star only because I can't give you 0.
Keep up the good work

wow........you asked if the Antenna Mast will work..........I answered
I also provided 2003 Volvo Factory Service Manual Installation
Now you tell me it is not "2003"........so apparently I am dealing with someone that already knew the answers & was just trying to Test us to see what we know....
You have NOT wasted "$34", as that was a Deposit & the Money is still there for you.........
If 1 star is all you are capable of, go for it, as that does NOT affect my answer that you received for FREE........
Have "A Day"............
