Gear Gaiter centre console

How can i make this fit?

The original gaiter cannot fit into the centre console.

Any ideas?

Re: Gear Gaiter centre console

Exactly, you're missing that piece of plastic. Original gaiter has holes (or small cuts, however you call them) on the lower end; the plastic trim goes inside of gaiter... Actually they are glued together by manufacturer at the bottom end of gaiter. That way, when trim is placed in centre console gaiter goes around and below it.

BTW it ain't a problem judging by your pic - just don't drop anything inside like i did several times

Re: Gear Gaiter centre console

I wouldn't go to the dealer, who knows how much would they charge you. Go to the junkyard, find any mk1 and you'll probably pay either nothing or something symbolic.
