Type 3 rocker chrome lower cill trim

Post by Thurlwood » 10th November 2020 - 8:50pm

Can anyone help me with the clips I need. I need the clips for the lower chrome trim under the doors. The clips that have come off the car are in the attached picture. Can I get these anywhere as I am struggling to find them? I am starting to think that this is not the correct trim and may be from a later model. Please see other photo for the trim. Is this the correct trim. If not, which is the correct one for a 1969 model. Richard

According to the on-line parts book I use, it's the same for all Type 3s from 1967 onwards. Sorry I don't know where you would get them though.

I'm not 100% sure but think your car should have the thinner trim fitted, in the pictures looks like the earlier ones fitted, I think Simon Kelley sells the trim clips (notch 1500 on ebay) if not try cool air.

Have you tried Part Number 311 853 587 ?

From what I remember on my 1972 Type 3 Variant the Clips were a larger than usual version of the White Nylon ones with 4 sort of Arms and Pin that pushes into Holes in the Sills.

I’ve just googled 311 853 587

Suppliers like CSP CIP Wolfsburg West show them to be Metal Clips but some German Sellers on eBay show them as Black Plastic.
