Door Sill Trim Clips - 3D Printed

Post by craigwalton » Tue Jul 11, 2017 9:24 pm

From my experience, Mk2 Scirocco door sill trim clips are hard to come about and are quite brittle after time, so I've designed, 3D printed and tested some alternatives which are thicker and have less fiddly, bending parts. This replaces part number 533853831, shown as part 4 in the ETKA diagram below:

Incase anyone else on the forum could benefit from these, I'd be happy to 3D print some more for the cost of material, packing and postage.
For £15 via PayPal (craig.w@me.com):
- set of 12 clips (enough for both sides of car)
- 2nd class UK postage

See below for some photos and a short video showing installation and removal. Let me know if you have any questions or would be interested in a set!
