Rear parcel shelf swap?

Post by jlmacd » Wed May 10, 2017 1:24 am

Wondered if anyone has successfully swapped, or knows if it is possible to swap, the rear parcel shelf out of a D8 saloon to a D9 saloon and vice a versa?

Always liked having the rear window sunshade on my D8 and, now I am moving to a D9, (Both are GLX trim saloon models) would love to hang onto it.

Many thanks if anyone may be able to say...

Had a look today. Without pulling everything to bits, they certainly look similar but there is still the matter of the two 'sockets' in the headlining that receive the ends of the sun blind. Can't say I want to start cutting holes in the D9 ceiling for this tbh.

Never mind then..... am over it.
