No, the parts book shows those doors starting at 318 000 001. Someone 
must have replaced them, just to "update" the car. Just a guess, but I'm 
betting the door and ignition locks take different keys, too. I'm pretty sure 
they would have all matched with the car was new.

BTW, the photo Aiden posted is correct for the heat flap. I MIGHT be able to 
find one, possibly two. The hinge is plastic, so they survive, but IIRC, the 
flap and clip are steel, so they tend to rust. If you had the hinge, you could 
probably fabricate something.
