Does Max 's car have a chassis number starting 317 or 318 (367 or 368 for
Squareback)?   I guess he is aware of the model year that VW used, starting
in August?

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.
