    Yea I did. Well one of them is on anyway! I've not taken a pic yet but I might do that tomorrow and post it up if I get the chance.
    Handles £9 x 2
    Mechs £12 x 2
    Plus postage
    Coloured silver by my local bodyshop chap (includes the mirror surrounds) £80
    I didn't see how people say they managed to bend the striking pin as it looks pretty solid. I decided to drill a hole in the mech lever and put a bolt through it with a couple of nuts on to raise it up. Does the job! I'm sure there are better methods but it works so I'm happy.

    The first time the driver handle broke the car was still under warranty from the garage so I got it replaced but the second time it happened I thought it was a good time to do the delock mod and I'm pretty happy with the result. I'll post a pic when I get round to it.

    You don't need to do this if you buy the mechs to go with the handles

    Hey PhilsLadyC - Where did you get your handles/mechs from? I just called my local stealer, and they wanted -

    63.50 - Left+Right Mechs
    35 - Handles (L/R)
    +VAT!

    Ouch!
    Are the bits and pieces you got original VW parts? Looks like it's just the wiper mod for now...

    All the best
