Hi All -
I have an issue with my passenger side rear turn signal. I am going to order a new (to me) bulb tray. Mine are the combination metal with an ABS backing - car is a 1980.

I have found several, but cant tell if there is a difference between left and right. Anyone know for sure?

Thanks!
Scott S

Just a bump - don't want to order the wrong stuff.
Searched like crazy, cant find any discussion/reference.

Thanks -

This is a 1980 set. I see no discernible difference between the bulb trays.

its funny that vw retained some of the molding from swallowtails but changed the cover

swallowtail had a stud from the tail housing through the bulb holder that secured on the cover with a thumb nut
compared to plastic clips that held the bulb tray and cover in place.

...
but no, LH & RH are probally (most likely) the same part number for the bulb tray and cover
