The only way to adjust it back in is to put spacers between the 3 seating points on the car and the latch mechanism, but you'd have to take it all off again :scared: :rolleye:

Thanks guys.

Hurdy, wouldn't that mean that the rubber seal on the back of the handle would no longer be in contact with the car and would thus let water in ?

you are right :ashamed:

I Have my old one in my hand now. It is a 3 ridged seal affair, so you are right there is no way to adapt it. It also has to small locating latches at either side that I'd forgot about and so you cannot even use a deeper seal as it would mean that you couldn't locate it correctly.

Old thread I know but saves making a new one?
Struggling to get the boot trim off with one hand keeping the boot open, can it be removed with the boot lid closed so I've got both hands free?

Anyone?

It will come off but it's a persistent bugger, check this out http://www.my-gti.com/1475/volkswagen-golf-rear-lid-trims-%E2%80%93-removal-and-installation. I would recommend doing it with boot open, ask someone to help if your struggling. Also worth putting a sheet down to cover the bumper/ boot entry, as the trim can fly off.

Good luck with that  :happy2:.

Word of warning - the refit can be a fit fiddly, just make sure everything is in place beforehand. If you need any replacement clips just let me know.

I removed mine to tint the rear window and smashed it to pieces, got a new one and it doesn't seat right on the right hand side, right pain in the arse!
How hard can it be?

Sorry for reviving such an old thread but I've tried searching high & low but to no avail. Anyone help with a part number or size of screws in the handle recesses? My two are missing & I'd like to replace.

TIA
