QV24 Plastic Side Panel for Front Seats

Postby KY2006 » Tue Apr 24, 2012 11:00 am

Dear All,

I am looking for a good plastic side panel and elbow cover for the left front seat of my QV24. See picture.

Owing to design defects, these panels are liable to break when a passenger sits at the margin of the seat as the plastic panel is hollow and cannot hold the body weight of even a light weight passenger. I already replaced one on the right hand side with parts found from a donor car, but couldn't find the one on the left hand side - car was fine until a co-worker broke it when entering the car. :(

I am sure that there are many other broken panels on 164QVs and all have to learn to live with it by glue or tape or something, which is a shame. Have we thought about after-market production by fabricating some improved version of the panel using metal or other materials?

New ones are sold out for years now. Only way is to restore it.
There are a few topics on the repair here on this forum.

Am still looking for these two parts. For the plastic cover, hopefully I can find one used and repair it.

Maybe 3D printing is an option?

Yes, indeed, but only if we have a used, broken one as the master for copying.

It has been with my former mechanic who said he would try to find someone to fix it. That was like over three years ago and I wonder if he still has it.
