I’ve never seen one of these dash covers on I don’t think. I have an idea and happy to play with it if someone has a spare caddy 4 dash compartment that I can play with.

I’m happy to do it for the forum.

Yeah get that I know it LHD but it can’t be that far off. So with I little bit of playing tinkering there must be a solution. If so we or I can make a how to do we can have a dash that looks finished.

I’m not on FB but if anyone wants to send me one for the cause. We can see if there is an answer.

Bit of trimming or heating or I have no idea really until I see it.

I will get mine to fit, heat gun and dremel will do the trick

O I see. Yeah I can’t afford to buy one at loads of money if it’s not going to work. But I enjoy getting things to work and show people how to do it.

So as said anyone that has a spare dash compartment send it out to me.

I don't want pics lol the question was what does pix mean so I explained lol.


As I said earlier im close to releasing a kit for UK models, the hinges retro fit to your existing box and has a correctly orientated lid.
Im laid up after an accident but when I'm back in the workshop I'll start trying the various motled plastic samples I've got to see which match the original dash the best.

That said im all for stopping development if someone is closer, im not doing it for the money so don't want to tred on peoples toes. I just do one for myself.

So the link on the first page of the thread to FZN Parts shows a top compartment with the part number 2K5 857 922 B 81U, which seems to be the LHD version. However on ETKA there is a top compartment listed for South Africa (ZA) models which is 2K5 857 922 A 81U, and of course South Africa are RHD vehicles.

So a look on the VW ZA website brings up this photo, for the Caddy Trendline

Is that a RHD vehicle with a top compartment cover I spy, or devilish witchcraft? Perhaps one of our ZA members will know?

Sadly that part number doesn't work..

The A at the end is revision number. So if you try and order A, B superseeds. So you'll end up with a B revision anyway
