not sure of the official name, but often referred to as the 'puzzle piece' - covers the mounting bracket for the optional roof rack. woody on this forum (itsnotanova) is probably your best bet.

Also commonly called a "wingtip," but the official name is a trim cover:

986 504 862 00 Right

Thanks

Thanks Guys. I just bought a pair from parts society for $31.50 Figured I would have an extra for the drivers side. Worth it for the price.
You all have a great weekend!

Is there any adjustment that can be made with that piece? One of mine could use a little realignment.

They are not adjustable, however if the plastic screw that the metal pins are pushed into breaks you can replace those, PN: 996 504 855 01
