I gave up in disgust as our service dealer could not get VW to "come to the party" with a customer goodwill contribution to the replacement

"Ex-gratia" warranty is something that has to be negotiated by the dealer on your behalf or by your country's consumer protection authority unless there are cost limits on their jurisdiction.

In our case, the door interior skin and inside panel were replaced in their entirety - so far, the problem has not reoccurred. The unusual aspect is the left hand door panel is still like new after 10 years of ownership from new.
Carer for my partner's Eos 2.0 TDI DSG MY09 Australian specification - Candy White/Cornsilk Beige leather trim. As at April 2019, I still haven't driven HER car. Her 14 year old grand-daughter has now staked a claim for future ownership when my partner is no longer capable of driving. .
