    Hi Guys,

    I know this is a common problem - the vinyl on the door arm rest has started to crack quite badly and keeps pinching my elbow. I've tried the vinyl repair kit, which is ok for a short period of time. It doesn't fix the issue - it just covers it up.

    I'm thinking of just replacing the arm rest/handle part. Can someone tell me how much they cost roughly nowadays? And does someone by anychance have a spare on lying around that they would like to sell??

    :)

    Thanks all,

    J

    I just replaced mine because both parts had cracked at the top - the inner and outer part of the handle

    My part numbers and prices (excl. VAT) are below:

    A8P3 959 522 A7 PE (Bracket) 12.20
    A8P3 867 174 24 A (Armrest) 52.66

    I have a passenger side door handle arm that came from a 2007 S Line 3dr if anybody needs, along with the interior door release (non LED type).

    PM me if interested. I haven't got round to getting an image of the bits yet but will do soon and stick them in the classifieds.
