: Door Panel squeak...please help!

Hi all,

I've just bought a 2001 Audi A8 and loving every minute of it but unfortunately there's a squeak coming from the driver side door panel.

I took the panel out and it seems like most of the "clips" came loose so I attempted to order new ones. Problem is I can't seem to find the right part number for it. The closest I've got is 4D0867299D but that doesn't really look like the correct part. Some of the black "grommet" that the clips push into also seemed to have cracked. Basically the whole panel doesn't fit flush and tight as the others. Nearest dealership is >20 miles so I can't really drop in often for advice...

Can anyone perhaps suggest a correct part number or what should I do to remedy this? Don't reckon I should get a new panel?

Thank you.

No no no don't get a new panel. A simple short answer is call the dealer and discuss it over the phone and see if they can give you the part number. If not 20 miles isn't really far at all so just drive over and have it glanced at and get your part number. Therefore you won't have to wait around for a response on an exact part number here if you get one, since it is an odd small part; and you won't have to drive with the squeak anymore. I know it would drive me crazy!
