Hi Guys

I recently 'bumped' into a Getz causing a small amount of damage to the tailgate.

The guy who owns it is a decent fellow and is happy for me to get a replacement panel from a breakers yard.

The vehicle that I hit is a 2006 06 3dr 1.1 GSI

I have spoken to Hyundai customer services with regards to a tailgate from an older vehicle fitting this car. The guy said that for instance the 2004 and 2006 tailgates do have different part numbers, however he couldn't see what the difference was - the hinges etc were the same - he said it may or may not fit but couldn't be 100% sure! I have looked at photo's of the 2 vehicles and cannot see a difference in the general shape of the panels.

Does anyone on know if over the years the tailgates have changed at all? Will any all Getz tailgate fit this model or do I need one that is from a 2006 model? I have just managed to locate one locally at a reasonable price but it is off a 53 plate.

Any help greatly appreciated!

I can't give you a definite answer on this BUT in autumn 2005 hyundai introduced a facelift model which had a re-styled front and rear end so its unlikely that a tailgate from a pre facelift model will fit

Just what I didn't want to hear - but thanks for helping me to not waste money buying an incorrect tailgate!

Anyone know where I might be able to pick up a post 2005 tailgate for a decent price? I have rang around most of my local breakers without any joy!

Hi
I had the same probleme a couple of years ago. Never the less, I Found a 2004 tailgate in the right color for my 2007 Getz. 100% match. Hinges, wiring, lock - all the same.

Brilliant - thanks for that!!

I have also located one from a 2008 car - and it's half the price of the one I found on Friday - does anyone know if that will also fit the 2006 car?

Thanks again!

Hyundai made no further changes to the Getz between 2005 and 2008 so you should be o/k
