I just tried the second link (to the list of parts) and couldn't get the
list up, just an entry page in Russian I can't understand, so you'll have
to go to http://catalog.exist.ru , select the 1989 year and click
"Next", select 200 avant/quattro and click "next", choose "body" and hit
"next", find rear door panel with locking devices and hit "next" and
there's the list with the pix.
