    Does anyone know where to find the drivers door(GB) switch trim that has the 4th position for folding mirrors? Tps reckon the part was discontinued last year and there is none on ebay newnor used. Part numbers seem to be confusing between the different trim variations.

    Tps gave me this 8E2 867 172 (plus trim colour code which is soul black) an ebay search only turns up the standard 3 position trim panel without folding icon. I have contacted a few seat breakers on ebay as it seems the vast majority or Exeo's had power fold mirrors. Just waitimg for a response.

    Thats actually one of the sellers ive contacted, i could do without the rest of the door card and seems a shame to waste it. I will see what others say when they contact me back, but that is an option if i can't get hold of one

    Don't know if there would be any demand for the rest of the door card minus the handle, but at worst could always try re-selling it minus the handle, or possibly even pop your existing (non-power fold) trim on it to resell?

    Nightmare. I honestly would have thought that would be the easy bit to source compared to the modules and mirrors! Just goes to show...

    I expected the same thing, power fold mirrors for cabs are more common than avant/ saloon and i think i bought the only 2 on evay, i also have my eye on a few modules in case mine dont work its just this damn trim panel!

    I had the same trouble when I did my cabriolet folding mirror retrofit. Eventually found a guy on eBay selling the full door card. Bit annoying when you only need one bit but worked out quite cheap in the end.

    Although.... it's actually slightly more money than the entire door card I linked to earlier!!!! From the same place too!
    WTF? Might be more than Alex wants to pay.

    Alex did say he'd already contacted this company asking about them so I wonder if they've seen the opportunity to try their luck price wise....

    Yeah Rob thats the only one ive come across in the uk, the condition is whats putting me off to be honest. I may end up with the full door card as like you say the condition looks good, also its located about 10mins from me.

    Hi Rob, Thats a good find, Im looking for this for my mirror mod, I guess you can remove the black cover with the mirror switch and windows switches
    out of the arm rest and fit in to my arm rest, if you get what i mean.

    Still waiting for the modules in the next few days. keep me posted on how you get on, Thanks.

    Will do, what door modules do you have currently out of curiosity? Mine are the correct part number but end in F. Accoring to the retrofit guide, parts with E work but not B. Im unsure wether mine will work or not( mine have only a single row of pins) I have my eye on a couple just in case but i dont want to take the plunge until ive tested my original units. No point in wasting money!

    all making good progress then chaps, not that I need to do the mod but what sort of total cost are involved, might be handy for future ref should others want to do the same.

    Could also ready the door card for memory seats while the door card is off. Just need the memory switch and appropriate housing then repair wires to build the loom. Does need appropriate memory module under seat and wiring loom to work mind. But that could be a stage 2 piece of work.
