Sorry if this is already common knowlege amongst ClubB5ers, but can the rear sunshad be retrofitted onto a 2003 GL? My buddy wants to install one, if it's possible. Here's what he says:

"As it turns out, the factory does not make the rear window sunblind for the 2003 passat sedan. i called the dealer today. he checked and couldnt find anything in the computer. i guess i will go without or just settle for something cheap and cheesy."

Here is what my DriverGear catalogue says:

"The sunblind fits easily in your rear window and cuts down glare at night, while reducing direct sunlight through the rear window during the day. While it limits the amount of light coming in, it provides an unrestricted view to the outside."

Passat MY 98-01 $157.29 USD
3B5-064-360-A

Passat Wagon MY 98+ $115.13 USD
3B9-064-160

Golf, GTI MY 99+ $119.00 USD

Hope this is what you are looking for.

Thanks, but this seems to indicate that the rear sunshade is not available for Passat sedans after 2001!? Has anyone with a 2001.5 or newer Passat sedan installed one of these?

:crazy: I am not sure how it retrofits into the trim piece if it was not already their. I know that for my 99 GLS with Luxury Package the rear sunblind was integrated in the trim piece. Replacing that trim piece was at a list price of $369 but Liberty VW shipped it to my door for $300. I had to replace mine because my tint shop broke 5 or the 6 retaining clips trying to remove that piece. Fortunately, the owner agreed to replace it without batting an eye. :thumbup:
