Rear door cards

Hi all
Are the rear door cards the same on a manual rear window as a electric one?
Is it just the arm rest/door handle and side bin that are different? Can I just swap these two parts on any door card or do you need the complete unit? Thanks

As you say, the armrest and door pockets are different for electric rear windows but these can be swapped onto any other doorcard backing, by carefully cutting/drilling the plastic lugs on the back and reattaching with M6x10mm "hidden hinge" screws with washers.

The door handles changed from shiny to brushed finish in the 2002 model year, at the same time that Swing grey was discontinued. If you get a later doorcard, swapping the handle complete with its surround is just a push-out, push-in fit, but none of the later ones will be Swing so the surrounds won't match. I believe the handles are also a push fit into the surrounds once removed from the doorcard though.

Although all later cars had rear speakers (as does your early one, being BOSE) you will also have to take the wiring loom off the back of your current doorcard to use with the replacement, as it includes the wires for the window switch.

Evening,

If you’re after a rear electric window kit for someone like @timmus to fit I can help you out. I have the complete rear doors here I purchased from @A2Steve a while ago, Tom never got here in time to fit them to my old A2 before it died.

As Project OEM came with rear electric windows these are now surplus to my requirement. I was going to list them in the market place in the next week or 2.

I remember paying £125 plus delivery (can’t remember cost), you can collect these from Coalville at the give away price of £100. If not I’ll get them in the market place soon as I can.

Kind regards.

Tom

Thank you for the kind offer, However I already have rear electric windows on my car, but I am considering changing just the door cards on my car and due to it being more difficult (and expensive) to get ones with rear electric windows, I was checking that the cards are the same, its just the 2 attachments (arm rest and door bin with winder) that are different. I would then swap these to bits over that I already have.

Understood. Never taken the door cards apart before.

I know @A2Steve has recent(ish) experience of stripping down door cards to make some alterations. He should be able to supply the information you need to conduct a top refurb.

Kind regards,

Tom

Good evening,

Yes I do have rear door cards, cannot remember what colour they are so will check in the morning. They are rear electric rear doors cards which I wouldn’t be selling separately. I’d only be after selling the complete retrofit kit for someone like @timmus tk fit for you.

Kind regards,

Tom
