Front Seat Runners

Hi,
I have a Lux Nav D4, in Rebel Blue(64 plate) . I've had the car for nearly 3 months, but today noticed that the runners for moving the seats forward / backward have a plastic end cap only on the outer runner. Is this correct or are the inner ones missing?
I would appreciate your comments.
I must say I love the car. It's stylish, economic and pretty quick.

Welcome to the forum & congrats on choosing the V40 Trebor1960
Rebel Blue D4 eh? Very nice indeed & definitely no slouch
Your inner runner caps aren't missing... I haven't seen inner runner caps fitted to any V40 I've sat in.

Hope you continue to enjoy your V40...

Another victim of the MY15 cost reduction programme, by the looks of it. My MY13 car has them. They are slightly different mouldings to the outer end caps (the lower part of one front corner was removed to avoid the tunnel carpet) which probably marked them out as a target to be rationalised out.

You can see them listed as part 16 on this diagram:

The part numbers were:
Left Seat Inner Casing 31379462
Right Seat Inner Casing 31379461

Am not trying to come across as idiot but is it really such a big deal that the new cars dont have the plastic end caps, they are only seat runners as it happens my car has them but cant say i would miss them or even noticed them until someone mentioned it.
