How to retro-fit skid trays, aerodynamic under trays, & stone guards to a MK7 Golf

Dumb question (and maybe already in this thread somewhere), but is there an underbody diagram that shows what aero parts would go where?

I’m having a tough time visualizing where the exhaust tunnel stuff ‘fits’ exactly compared to the other underbody aero.

I’ve got a 7.5 R, so my understanding is that other than the full front aero tray and control arm stuff, there’s really not any other OEM underbody aero that will likely fit?

There were some overviews from a different car....but if you look at my photos for those trays in the first few post on the first page of this thread you'll see were/what I'm talking about.....

Thanks very much Dave - I’ve re-looked at your initial posts and I’m still not quite getting it. I may try to throw together a simple diagram myself if I have time and post it up 🤔

Found the "blank" one that somebody else posted...I then later annotated it & reposted it up in this thread...

Is there a way to find out what vehicles were originally fitted with these covers? I have access to partslink, but you have to search by VIN, so if the part doesn't match your VIN, it won't show up, or it'll be greyed out. It won't back-search and tell you what car could've had it.
My dealer asked for VIN on a couple of these parts as some of them have superseded to newer numbers/suffixes

Forget it, it will only tell you what was fitted at factory for the car/VIN....then you'll end up with no other parts retro-fitted....


Just give them the part number, if they say its been superseded get them to check the PR codes as they should be the same for the old & the new parts...I state in most of my threads all the main info in the first few posts......

Any chance you know the part number for the A3-specific piece for the rear bumper? I'm wondering if it would work to (partially) fill the gap at the back of the eGolf.

No & won't do much for your huge hole the e-Golf has...best to try to fit the Versus rear diffuser....or make something up yourself

If you search the E-Golf Facebook groups, covering the rear void does almost nothing for increased range. I was a bit surprised.

Obviously not trying hard enough...!!...


It'll do something for stability though....nope the battery weights the car down......bugger....err???......Noise reduction ??
