Default 83 urq

Hi everyone,

I have a 1983 URQ that I am slowly restoring. Currently I am looking for a couple of items: 1) . Sunvisor clips
2) an A/C clutch kit.
If any body has any suggestions such as a link or a phone #, I would appreciate it.
Thank you in advance.

Tony: 1983 URQ and 2008 A3 _Sline.

No idea about the clutch kit, but everyone that's trying to restore/repair a Coupe/Quattro appears to need sunvisor clips. They're about on Ebay at what appears to be expensive prices, however they are like hens teeth. They are available on the continent, but not from Audi or Audi Tradition, and they cost just as much as they do over here. I'm still hoping that there may be something from another VW car that might fit but I don't hold out much hope.

Here's an Ebay link that also has the part number if you feel like searching elsewhere.

Good luck with the hunt

Where do you think the Ebay sellers are buying them

You get 2 clips for that price

Constructive repetition plus the word 'plumbs' ... Great post

John,
I am no friend of eBay. But sometimes you have to dance with the devil to get what you need, and hope the hell you do not get burned.
