My eGolf stopped taking AC (slow) charge - but thankfully can still charge on DC fast 48KW chargers. VW have had the car in and say it needs a new charger socket, part number "W5GE9715315 wiring set". They cannot source this part or say when it is available - something to do with government blocks, as it is coming from the Ukraine - they were a bit hazy. VW corporate have said that they will cover the cost of the part if I can source one myself but I cannot find one online. I was wondering if anyone reading this either has one to sell me, or can recommend where to get the part?! Thanks!
