Default Body Parts Interchange

Hello everyone.
I have a 2007 C70 that I need to find a passenger door, fender, and headlight for.
Are there any other models that I can steal parts from?
My local junkyard has a parts interchange that says I can use parts from a S60, S70, V70, and XC70.
Can anyone help me confirm this?
Thanks!

Two ways to check this out - go to car-part.com and look for the used parts and ask for a search with interchange. The web site will list the year/model of the donor cars. Another approach is to go to a dealer web site like tascaparts.com, find the part number then look up the applications by model.

I can confirm that your junkyard is wrong on all counts.

Crap. Well. That sucks. I've been searching everywhere for a 07 C70 fender and unless I want to spend north of $300 it ain't gonna happen.
anyone got any ideas? What about swapping both fenders and headlights to one's from an s40, they look like they'd bolt up and two fenders and two headlights from the junkyard is STILL cheaper than one C70 fender of the internet

you think $325 for a new genuine Volvo front fender that's guaranteed to fit is too much for the part? The next best thing is to search used parts - the fenders are the same from 2006 to 2013 and I'd suspect the doors are too but only for C70s. Check out Erie VoVo's web site to get an idea of what the going rate is for used C70 body parts. The headlight buckets can be found on eBay and Amazon as aftermarket too.

I mean $325 for a new fender ($250 used) isn't exactly robbery, but my other vehicle is a Jeep and I guess I'm just used to getting crazy cheap parts.
Welcome to Volvo I guess...
Plus, I only paid like $400 for the car last year, so the point here is a CHEAP car that gets better mileage for daily driving than my 12MPG Jeep.
So far I ordered a new rim, tire, and lower control arm ($265 total)
And since the paint on the roof is trash, the fender will need paint, and door will need body and paint (and I can paint it myself) i was just going to flat black the entire car.
Here's my disaster as it sits now...
