Parcel Shelf Clips for Mk2 - 3D Printed

Postby craigwalton » Sat May 06, 2017 1:55 pm

After buying my first Scirocco, I designed and 3D printed a pair of parcel shelf mounting clips and mounting plugs. A year and a half later they're still working great and not showing signs of wear or deterioration. I thought maybe other members of the forum could benefit from this too.

I designed and printed the equivalents (optimised for 3D printing as opposed to injection mounding) for the original parts:
Mounting Clip (155867787)
Mounting Plug (171867783A)

Both are printed in black ABS. The mounting clips are fixed to the car with an M4 nut and bolt to reduce the part's fragility and the likelihood of pulling the clips out when you remove the parcel shelf. The bolt's head sits sub-flush to the pivot surface. The mounting plugs are simply a (gentle) press fit, much like the original part and have the same diameter, so are interchangeable. I now own a pair of original mounting plugs and can confirm that they work just fine with the 3D printed mounting clips.

I'm happy to print more of these at the cost of material, keeping my printer running, my time finishing the parts (inspecting and removing support material). For £8, I'll post:
- 2x mounting clip
- 2x mounting plug
- 2x M4 bolt
- 2x M4 nut
- 2x M4 washer
- 2nd Class UK mainland postage

Let me know if you're interested!
