Hi, welcome to the forum.
The Touran doors are a different shape to the caddy and therefore are not swappable.

i thought only the windows and door mirror mounting area was different. thats what it looked like with a caddy and touran next to each other anyway. rest of the shape did look very similar

I also thought they were the same. When I wanted to replace the mirror from Touran, it was unfortunate, it had to be adjusted, so the door was different :roll:

the only difference i noticed is just where the mirror sits even the little window infront of the door looks the same as the touran one. so to me its just mirror part and the glass that have changed sizes so if the touran door is the same in size and shape else where then would be just a swap over and then touran mirrors would just bolt on. i was surprised that they was different as they are both similar especially front end.

The top of the Touran door and the Caddy door are different profiles.

You can see in this comparison the Touran one is a smoother arc and the Caddy one goes up and then kinks slightly

I've overlaid the two on photoshop and you can see the difference with the Caddy one being slightly taller as well

This is true, the doors aren’t interchangeable but the door cards are, just a small bit of trimming around the mirror cover

Probably not but it's worth trying if you have Touran deflectors available to check.
If you're buying new, there's proper caddy deflectors available so no point buy the wrong ones.

Ok just asking as there is a guy fairly local to me selling a set of touran deflectors for £10. But the caddy ones are only around £30 on eBay so I don’t think I’ll take the risk lol thanks for the reply
