Help with Parts number
« on: 13 October 2021, 08:15 AM »
Hello there,
Was wondering if anyone could help me with the part numbers for the access panel for both sides in the front including the seal please. Mine's rusted beyond hope. In the diagram I've noted that they are numbers 421 & 425 for one side, unfortunately I don't have the diagram for the other side.

Thanks in advance.

EPC calls for the same number for LHS and RHS:

Cover: 116 826 00 24
Seal:   116 826 00 80

So you would need 2x of each.  Not sure if these are NLA new, I see them on ebay from time to time and they are surprisingly pricey :'(

Indeed I am not sure why these are so crazy expensive.  If you scour ebay and such you can sometimes find a nice used set with the seal for not too much money, but they can sometimes be pretty rough used so new would be the next best thing I guess.
