There’s a cover over the boot side of part of the centre seatback hinge that’s been deleted.


Does anyone know the part number for this please?

Oh...to add to my list... the 'ash tray' in front of the gear lever which is now a smartphone holder... is it just my car, or does anyone else have a problem with this sometimes catching on something and doesn't open properly?  it's not the cable as I tried it with nothing in it.  Loathe to take it into the dealers as they'd probably put mud all over my mats and scuff my door sills and still not be able to fix it, so I'll probably live with it.  It's not that much of a problem, just needs a prod to make it open rather than springing up itself.  On the subject, I wish it had a slightly more tactile feel and wasn't in that horrid black gloss plastic  :sick:  :grin:

Yes my phone tray can be a bit temperamental at times too. Usually though the times it doesn't open properly are usually when I don't quite catch the silver edging  or I don't give it a long enough press.

Just had a look, as I’ve already liberated mine, to go into my new PP.
It’s  5GO 886. 197

Hopefully, it’s still obtainable!

Thanks for that 👍
Just had a look on eBay and they are available and the seller is a VAG dealer £12.99 seems to be the going rate for a new one and £6.99 for a “pre loved” one
Do you have a photo of it? There are a couple of different base designs I have seen one is square the other is like an arc. TIA
