Question on an interior panel.....

Post by sneakyboy1 » Jun Fri 25, 2010 9:04 am

Does anyone know what the name of the little triangle panel that covers the mirror mounting screws on the doors? It's the panel that's missing in the picture below.
I'm either looking for the actual name of this panel and or if anyone on here happens to have a set of these they'd like to sell?
Thanks! :thumbsup:

etka calls them door corner trim, these are very commonly missing. replace the little blue(get from Four Seasons, go OEM) push grommets that push into those two holes get some trim from a junkyard, and profit

Well our biggest junkyard is long gone now. :\

I looked on BFI's site but didn't see any real interior panels except for gauges and gauge panels. They window cranks too but that's it? Looking under MKII, is there another area I should be looking?

Does Billings have any cars with the big doors? I have only seen little ones.

I would be that any 90-94 VW platform would fit. There's a B3 passat at the yard here and I would put money on that they would be a direct fit. I may even have pulled the set from my Passat before I junked it - I'll take a look there tonight for them.

I actually bought the set (to replace mine that were missing) from someone parting a B3 on the vortex, so you may also look there.
