Net partition retro-fit

Post by 240caballos » Wed Jun 19, 2019 10:45 pm

Hello everyone, I am new to Passat ownership and looking forward to getting to grips with my "new" BiTDi GT Estate (66 plate)...

I have noticed that mine doesn't have the retractable net partition above the rear seats, and would appreciate a bit of advice on retro-fitting one. Has anyone tried this? I plan to do this on a DIY basis and assume that I will be able to find the parts OK (including the eyes that fit into the ceiling). But, before cutting into my precious headlining, it would be good to know this is actually going to work! Will I find the correct holes for the mounting brackets to screw into, or is there an extra bit of hardware on the cars where the partition is factory-fitted?

If anyone has done this already then a how-to guide would be much appreciated!

Right, so I now have the parts and am going to give this a shot. Assuming this works, I'll post a how to guide. All I need is for some kind soul who owns a B8 estate with the net partition specced to drop me a PM so that I can take some measurements from you... anyone?
