Radiator Air Guide
« on: July 26, 2009, 11:15:45 pm »
Hi all. Looking for the above part (867 121 284F) in original condition with all 4 mounting screws intact and working. Can anyone help please ? Will be doing the G40 Rally if that helps for collection/payment.

Thanks/regards
Rob

i think your odds on finding one thats been removed is highly unlikely, them clips always seem to break, i have scrapped dozens of polos and to date never removed one without breaking the clips!

im guessing they arent available from vw anymore?

Thanks for the reply. No, this part not avail any more. But, ever the optimist (fuel tank half full not half empty-or some such bollocks) I'm hoping one will appear from somewhere !
I wonder why they all get broken. Are Polos prone to front end crashes ?!  :D

I got mine off OK but then accidentally threw it in the bin in a fit of garage tidying  :'( Now I don't have one on my car which I should sort out really.

Hi guys...Just to update this....VW still supply this part at 20.43 + VAT. Waited a week or so and now have it. Was told originally part was obsolete but asked again and it wasn't. The mind boggles ! Result.
