How’s things all. I’m new to the forum and just finding my way around. Can anybody tell me will a facelifted front end for onto the old shape 1.9 caddy mk3 and is it a big job to convert. Will the bonnet lights wings and bumpers swap over easily

Hi, welcome to the forum.
Which facelift front are you thinking, 2010-2015 or 2015+?
Both are possible, neither are particularly easy.

Cheers mateI’m thinking 2010-2015 it looks to be an easier conversion and cheaper, I might well be wrong though. There is a rear ended caddy near me at the moment in the same colour

Just to confirm, you mean the MK4? There are lists on the forum but to do it correctly you will need bonnet, grill, wings, lights, bumper, front quarter light windows (they're a different shape than the MK3) and I suspect a load of other bits (on the MK3 you need the different pieces at the front for the wings to attach to) and if you're going to do it properly then you will need doors as well as the MK4 has a subtle swage line leading back from the wings which the MK3 doesn't, and then you open a can of worms because the door cards are different which if you use the MK4 ones won't line up with the dashboard plus you would need to repin and code the locking modules and the BCM (or is it CECM I can never remember!) as they are different as well!

I'm interested by mk4 front conversion for my 2010 caddy. Is the 2016 caddy life wing mirrors fitted on mk3 doors? Thanks for your help
