    My centre consol is for a 5 door with ful electric windows (with the five switches across the middle). Its pretty battered though. You can get brand new the ones with no window switches at all. Has anyone managed to get the one with no switch panels to be converted to hold standard vw window switches or is not possible?

    Yes you can, I 3D printed this for one with no panels for the window switches. You can buy. VW ones also.

    Cheers, so you can buy a switch panel from VW?

    Presume I have to cut off the little oddments cubby hole so that the switch panel fits?

    No, you drill two holes in the back and it bolts in.

    Apparently so, I’ve never seen on. Which is why I printed it. That I need it, I’ve got a proper one

    the removable switch panel is aftermarket only, the genuine consoles have the switch panel moulded into it
