Warning Triangle for Hatch Liftgate Recess?

15261 Views 44 Replies 20 Participants Last post by  7S POWER
Has anyone found the subject that fits into the recess in the rear hatch? They seem to be unavailable or superceded with another type. I have no use for the VW full emergency pack and again would prefer to use the hatch recess. Thanks!

My salesman speculated it was for the warning triangle required in Europe. I was like oh cool, I have some of those from when we lived in Germany. None fit, so if it is for a warning triangle it must be one made specifically for VW. I have not found anything that fits there, securely.

Yes, that's the issue. You don't get much in the EV emergency pack for $83 but I just might. The soft side case is better than the charge cable bag that comes with the vehicle as well.

My ID.4 came with the EV emergency kit and the included warning triangle does not fit in the hatch slot. That's been the case for other Volkswagens I've owned. The European warning triangles are a completely different design.

It seems that someone would sell such a kit, but I haven't found it. Any triangle kit to fit ID.4 trunk slot would need to have case dimensions of approximately 430 mm x 46 mm x 28 mm. Even the ebay sold Tiguan compatible kits all appear to have width that exceeds 46 mm.

I just measured the VW OEM triangle I have in my Golf. It's 428 mm x 46 mm x 30 mm. It has both VW and Audi part numbers and appears to be manufactured by GEBRA. As mentioned previously, the VW and Audi versions seem to be out of stock everywhere, but the GEBRA/TRImicro version is available here on a German online store.

Irish ID.4 owner here, and we didn't get any warning triangle in our car. Nor did any of the other ID.4 owners i've talked to in Ireland.

Must be in the money savings bin with the false boot floor and LEDs for the climate/volume buttons.

Thanks very much. Alas they have a mandated order site pulldown of Germany/Austria/Switzerland delivery locales so likely that's it. The more I think about it the VW EV emergency kit with its nicer bag for also stowing the charge cable is becoming more appealing.

Although: 2015 Volkswagen Passat Warning Triangle 1Y0-093-055 Nah, unsecure website!

They must not understand how security works, since the volkswagenpartspeople seem to think they are golden. :) To quote them:

Likely, they don't have stock anyway since their site doesn't appear to manage inventory. You can punch in any order quantity and it will try to sell it to you.

Too bad. I did manage to find a few on eBay using the Audi part number (8K0860251).

Thanks @sprylo, with the part number I was able to find this 18.05US $ 5% OFF|8K0860251A OEM Triangle Warning Sign With Case For VW Polo Jetta Golf Sharan Touareg For Audi A3 Q5 Q3 A4 A6 A7 A8 Q7|Signal Lamp| - AliExpress for just over $20 including shipping. It fits perfectly! Note that it rotates into place, I originally thought it wasn't quite right, but it fits perfectly when rotated. It took 16 days from placing the order to arriving in California.

Thanks very much NorCar. The warning triangle in the EV Emergency kit leaves a lot to be desired so will probably procure another via your link. Thanks again!

Arrived today. Thanks again NorCar! As you said, one of those things that doesn't look like it's going to fit, then twist-slides right in (two inner plastic detents that compress). ;) (y)

Glad to help! I ordered one myself so I don't have to steal the one from my old Golf. Side-by-side, they look almost identical. The case on the older German-made one is a little beefier, but I wouldn't say the AliExpress one is lacking. I didn't unfold them, but to my eye the triangles themselves are almost indistinguishable.

I did take it out of the case, and also removed and discarded the inner plastic bag, and it did appear to be generally the same as my prior Audi.

Our spring-water bottles used to be beefier too. Everything is value engineered to the max!

There is a sticker on the case that says FAW-Volkswagen with the expected logos, but not sure how much I should believe that this is an OEM part. Regardless, it doesn鈥檛 matter as it should work just fine if ever needed.

It probably is a genuine OEM part for the Chinese market. FAW is VW's joint venture partner to produce VWs and Audis in China.
