My 2004 black T6 is showing considerable dulling of the bright trim around the window areas. Has anyone else suffered this? Has anyone replaced the trim and if so what costs and work is needed? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: bright trim pitted and dull (britinkc)

look up iPd's catalog online, they have specialized products to restore dull trim finish.

If you are still under warranty your dealership should take care of it.<br><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=27766" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=27766</A>

Re: bright trim pitted and dull (dachshund2)

Had every piece replaced under warranty. Took about 2 weeks to get all the peices in though. It's been a year and no problems with the replaced pieces yet.<p>The dealer listed all the part numbers on my service receipt. I looked the part #'s up online and EACH peice was around $100.00. Some were just under, but a bunch were over a hundred bucks a piece. <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> to my dealer, Berberian European in Stockton CA.<p>Tim <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Are any of your cars parked outdoors in sunlight regularly? Are garaged vehicles less likely to experience the dulling?

our 2004 is always garaged at night but day time temperatures vary between highs of 100+ and lows of zero. I have tried buffing using t-cut but thisw appears to have made things worse and the oxide seems to have spread to most of the trim making it appear dull against the black. I suppose I could just do it so that it all apears dull and make a feature of it.

The dealer replaced all the trim under warranty. There was evidently a materials problem. Volvo must have fixed it because there has not been much said about it lately. Same story with the corrosion on the wheel bolts.

Re: bright trim pitted and dull (t6tim)

Just had mine all replaced for the second time a few months back. Now once again, some of the trim is misaligned. Feels about the quality of my first year Mercury Sable. Then again, that was a Ford, too. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Yep I had the same problem, they replaced all of the trim about a year ago, and it has been great. No problems so far.<p>Matt
