    Load cover

    Not very interesting I know, but does anyone know if the black plastic lugs/pins that hold the load cover open are available separatley?
    I'm missing one and my local dealer says that they are not available and that a complete cover would have to be purchased
    To clarify, I'm talking about the pins at the bootlid end and not the lugs nearest the middle seats.

    Check ebay, there are always loads of covers on there whenever I have a look and a hell of a lot cheaper than vx!

    Ok cheers chaps

    I'm damned if I'm buying a complete one just for the sake of a little lug of plastic, I'll improvise!

    Depending how it is broken could you use a suitably sized bolt screwed into the load cover and grind down the head to fit the slot near the rear door?

    Found a bit of a cheapskate solution today, got an old tyre valve from my wheels and slapped it in, works a treat TBH.
    I was going to fashion a new bit out of some nylon sheet that I've got somewhere, if only i could find it!

    Still better than buying a new one, even if it is off ebay.
