Model Designations ?
« on: August 19, 2015, 06:54:40 PM »
Hello,
Looking on ebay at various bits  :-[ I've seen a few different model references such as 7M8, 7M9 and wondered is there a definitive listing for these anywhere, I'm used to the older VW designations such as T1,T2, T34, T5 etc but I've not come across these before.
Thanks in advance  :)

If I understand it correctly, unlike Ford, who give their parts an engineering number and a separate part number for inventory purposes, VW just use one reference, of which the first string of digits relate to the model- in the case of the Mk2 Galaxy/Alhambra/Sharan, parts made specifically for these vehicles start with a 7M3 reference. Not all of the parts fitted to these vehicles begin with the 7M3 reference, as many parts are generic and used on a number of different vehicles (e.g, engine components, keys, bolts, screws etc) so are referenced differently, but the parts specific to the Mk2 platform begin with 7M3.
