sunvisor clips
« on: January 16, 2005, 10:06:04 am »
Hi,
 I'm Steve ( new member ) and looking for sunvisor clips for the car. I have phoned a few spare parts places and ( have been told ) they are not available new. The part number is 855857561 8VK , I am not sure if they are the same clips/holders as in the GT or Quattro ( perhaps someone could shed some light on that.....ha ), but any information would be much appreciated.

The only part number I have is the clip for the Sport quattro #823 857 561B 01C sun visor - the correct urq part isn't listed anymore, so it probably is deleted. I bought two of the above clips for my car last year, satin black, slightly shorter unfortunately so you can only fix one screw. It does the job, I suppose it's about the only part of a Sport I'll ever own.  ;D

Unfortunately second hand ones aren't much good as the plastic is usually sun damamged. When I got mine two years ago they were unavailable in cream, and the only one aval was the black version.

Audi's attitude toward these cars annoys me. The Ur-q and its relatives are the foundations of Audi's present day success and an important part of the company's heritage. There are dedicated owners working hard to keep these cars on the road. Audi aspires to be a 'premium carmaker' on a par with Mercedes and BMW, but what they are overlooking is that a real 'premium carmaker' still supports older models. Mercedes, BMW and Porsche in particular remain very interested in supporting models that are far older than the Ur-quattro. Audi seems uninterested in cars older than a decade or so (discounting multi-million euro replicas of 1930s Auto-Union racers) - which is an attitude more in line with a low-end mass market manufacturer than a 'premium carmaker'.

Thanks for the tip John. Black ones will not match but are better than nothing. Did you source those in N.Z or have to get them of shore?.

The on-line version of ETKA shows all versions as NLA.

I got them from VAG Parts in the UK @ Stg1.68 each. As Mike mentioned, the coupe has the same part, I fitted second hand first time, they fell apart as soon as I screwed them in!
