LHD illuminated door handles....(school boy error)

    With the help of google translator I thought I found myself a good buy on eBay.de for a used complete door lighting kit removed from a 2011 car ready for a weekend of retro fitting.
    4x complete door wiring looms
    4x Illuminated interior door handles
    4x red warning lights
    4x white puddle lights


    I was hoping I could just 'pop' in the door lock buttons from my old handle into my new osf handle, and 'pop' out the buttons on the new nsf handle and replace with a blank, but no such luck. So I now have spare front illuminated handles for a LHD car. :)
    I have searched various forums and threads but cannot find the actual part numbers anywhere for the correct front Illuminated door handles for a RHD car. Can anyone who has done the retrofit please be able to advise the part numbers for a 2011.

    Many thanks for the detailed p/n listing. I now think the p/n I need for the inner door handles are 8K0837019 / 8K0837020 , but I don’t know what distinguishes the variants ie LHD / RHD (as you can see from my picture the passenger door handle has the lock buttons and the drivers door has a blank.) Also what denotes if the handle has the extra whole for the lighting strip?

    I have no idea about the hole for the lighting strip...i would guess that the part would accomodate it.Ifin doubt a visit to your parts dept will give a definitive

    Many thanks for digging that out, I have now found a passenger one on Ebay so just need a drivers side one and I am ready to go. Might have to get it from a dealer along with the parts to complete my electric folding miror retro fit at the same time.
