Replacement Door Clips Mk7

28 February 2014 - 08:47 AM

I recently had to take the front door card off to fix some rattles however after this i noticed a new rattle, on further inspection it seems as if the 3 door clips have weakend and rather than clipping in theY simply bend up against the door card hence causing the new rattle due to the card sitting loose. I can get a set of clips off ebay but i was wondering if some anti rattle style clips from a car such as e46 bmw's would do a better job? anyone had any experience with this? 

Electric Window Switch Not Sitting Right

06 February 2014 - 02:58 PM

Whenever a passenger had the arm resting on the arm rest on the door i noticed that the switch would make an annoying creaking sound. Today i popped the switch out using a trim removal tool and applied grease to the edges to stop the creak however when i popped it back in it no longer sits right on the front area and with enough force on the switch it pulls out from the door card with ease. Anyone had any similar issues with this, I tried moving around the clip to try fix it but nothing seemed to work.


Looks worse than it is in the picture



How it is when force is applied





Mk7 2010 Boot Opening On Its Own

31 January 2014 - 12:58 PM

The car recently developed the problem where the bootlid opens on its own. It dosent do it when the cars locked only when the locks are open. I understand other people on the forum have had the same issue. Is it the boot latch at fault or the boot opening switch?
