Just to make everyone aware of a potential issue with loose screws on the rear load cover.

Moved my load cover today so I could vac the car and discovered one of the stoppers was missing, lucky enough I found it down the back of the seats but no sign of the holding screw, managed to find a suitable replacement screw and refitted it, double checked the other side and that screw was almost out as well.

Hmm, I rarely ever use the load cover on mine but will take a look now you have raised the issue, thanks for the heads up.

I looked at mine and while the screws weren't dangling or completely out, they did take a good half turn. Of course putting a steel screw into plastic is the best way to strip the hole. I've had cargo covers on other vehicles -- including my Montero Sport and Outlander -- that had a well-built feeling to them. Unfortunately, this doesn't share that quality. Of course if I were to pick the place to cheap out, it would be in the rear deck accessories over the dash or drive train. ;)

Yep, Found the left side clip in the cargo area, completely off about a month ago. Found the screw on the other side of the area when vacuuming. Replaced both with larger chrome self tapping screws that will not shake loose. Poor quality blind overall when compared to my previous Pajero and Outlander.

There is a little metal plate that the screw goes through. So will see how this goes using the screw I had.

I can confirm the rear cover is a single part number (7237A148XA). There is no separate part number for the locating clips.

I replaced my entire blind with a much better blind from AliExpress. Much more robust and it has a handle in the flap to pul on rather than grabbing the blind edge.
