Door trim around switches / handle
« on: January 06, 2019, 11:37:13 PM »
The inner handle trim,  that extends forward to the 2 electric window switches, are they available new anywhere?  I quite fancy them in maybe a carbon look?
Mine are getting tired looking.

I'm not sure, but I thought, if possible why not get some 3M carbon wrap and wrap yours?

I did think about it,  but a lot of opposing curves to deal with.

The majority of the VW parts are for the Chinese market listed on ali and therefore no RHD available unfortunately, so was referring to the site wide not your specific link  :innocent:

Rang my dealer today. All 3 parts in Robs link available,  €16, €18 and €13 and a few cents.  Presumably your UK prices will similar to my Irish ones.

These numbers  are for three door drivers 5 door drivers and passengers side is the same on both I believe  . I had the early rubber feel ones that were peeling , four years on these look as good as the day I fitted them

check the how to's Passat switch fitting guide as that covers removing the handles to fit the switches :happy2:
