rear hatch grommets

Post by type53b » Thu Aug 20, 2015 12:40 am

hi all, i have already asked the nice people on this forum for help with getting the part number for these grommets and as per usual they came up trumps! now however i have hit a snag vw in the republic of ireland say this part is obsolete since 2012 and they have none left. i contacted vw classic .de by email and was told the same . none availble. :-( would it be possible for somebody on here who is based in the uk to find out off a uk vw dealer if there are any of these grommets (i need 2 by the way) left anywhere in england's green and pleasant land? thank you and the part no is 321971840.


remember, if it's got tit's or tyre's, sooner or later it's gonna give you trouble.

Sorry, where do these grommets fit? There are lots of grommets associated with the boot lid and its associated fixings.

Between the top of the tailgate and roof, they protect the wiring for the heated screen and the rear wash/wipe.
