Hello,
New here - while replacing the rear window regulator for my GF, the actuator arm for the side flap for the 2004 beetle convertible broke one of the ends. Having trouble locating the part so hopinh someone here might have an old or broken one available as I only need to replace one of the broken plastic ends.

Thank you,
B

I would contact your local vw dealer parts dept; if not available as a separate part, a junkyard or ebay for used parts would be another option.

Lookup new parts here:

Thank you! Part is theoretically available but out of stock and $60 plus long lead time at local dealer. Haven't been able to find at local junkyards - it's an 03-04 only part. Paet is too small for car-parts.com to be concerned about. I was hoping somebody here might have one, otherwise I'll keep searching the yards. Here's the part # as reference but I only need either of the plastic ends which is not a separate part. 1Y0871301

Because, the flaps eventually all break; Volkswagen deleted these, from the later models. Many, just remove the flap mechanism, keep the plug, harness in place, so there is no error in the operation of the top and leave it that way, no more breakage issue to deal with.
