New side rail problem

Post by audi5inline » Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:51 am

I have ordered a new side rail to fit a side rail cover to. But i have a problem fitting, the bolt holes dont line up. It seems that the holes are not in 1 line. Anyone else had this problem ? Its an original vw part...Image

Can't recall my holes being staggered like that when I fitted mine, I would have a word with whoever you purchased it of.
Pretty sure all the fixing holes should be in a straight line. Who or where did you get the rail from?

Have you sorted this out? They are not in line indeed on my caddy 4 and it's 6 holes in total, not 5. Perhaps it has been 'updated' for mk4 caddy. What year is yours?

Was it 5 or 6 holes on the other one?
