    Missing part revival

    OK, so my tailgate is missing the two buffers that the parcel shelf sits against when closed. (Part no. 535867815A) Obsolete
    I have contacted Anna about remaking some, so my questions are:-
    • Who else has these missing
    • Are they foam or rubber
    • Anyone have a picture
    Hopefully lots of people will be missing these and then VW Heritage may get these made again ( thanks anna)
    Let me know people

    Mine are mine a missing. I've know idea what they are made from though , I've never had them on the car .

    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    High density foam.

    A pair live between the rear parcel shelf support panel the rear seat - I think these are to limit movement/vibration of the rear seat, 535867783, the look like the ones detailed below but have a hole through the middle of the large section to aid compression.

    There are 2 that sit on the tailgate trim panel, 535867815A, are designed to stop the parcel shelf rattling around, the original finish is a smooth foam although as per the images below I made that out of toolkit style foam which is a little rougher.

    Got an original boot one in my hands now albeit its a bit scruffy.

    Great. The more people missing the more chance we have with Anna making us some more.
    Anyone else?

    Hi all,
    Man I've been looking for these for years. Missing one on my SLC. Not a
    high visible item but for all who want their car complete its a must.
    Put me in for a pair even if someone else fabricates them. Made from
    a close cell high density foam. If the shape wasn't so irregular, I'd
    try to cut my own. I'm certainly in. Thanks:cheers :
