I am new here, but I owned an '85 GTI and '87 Cabriolet in the past. I recently purchased a 2001 GTI GLS 1.8T with a 5-speed manual (originally bought in 2000). It is light gold with a black cloth interior. I am very happy with it. My only concern is the left rear seat belt, which is fairly shredded. It is operational.
I have been searching eBay and such for a black Mk4 left rear seat belt and have found them in the 2002-2005 range. Can I use one from any mk4 year, and will a belt from the VR6 model be the same part?
