I'd have a canary if starlings did that to my car :shock: Hope they don't move down south nearer London, otherwise I know someone who will have no paintwork left from scrapoff bird poo :P

do canaries not poop as you'd only be replacing one bird with another?

:lol: :lol: :lol: Did that get lost in translation??? In my part of the world "have a canary" means "have a fit" - or did you get that and I really just missed the irony in your question :lol: :lol:

Hmm. Should you trust a post glorifying bird poo wipes from a forum member called magpie ;)
:lol:

Magpie is because I support Newcastle united (the magpies).

Not because I go round plopping on people's cars, so they buy my bird poo wipes (patent pending).

A friend that also bought an Ateca didn't realise about the driver side storage drawer under the seat. Useful little space. I keep, amongst other things, special bird poo wipes in there that I nicked from my dads autoglym pack he no longer needed. They work really well! Got to keep the orange looking good!

You can buy one for the passenger side from EKTA, something the German forumn found. I carry my emergency 2amp charger in there since the built in power is 1amp so won't charge your 2amp devices if they have been off charge for a bit, normal glasses and dark glasses spare sets so when I forget them, I got them. The space is stuffed with just those three things.

After some google translating of Storage drawer into German (Schublade) then a search on ateca-forum.de, then translate one of those pages and :D

This is where they talk about it anyway, haven't read it all yet but they say you can buy the part and retrofit it yourself :D

That's it Kindness and the price I recall was about £120 or so. A bit pricey. The other thing is and I could be wrong, you may have to take the seat out to fit it. Pretty sure the seat would have to come out. There is an advantage in not having it on the passenger side that you can get more right under the seat. That's where my second car blanket goes given the space limit in the boot of the 4Drive. Now that could be a hidden or discovered gem. Use that blanket to cover footwell stuff up when on holiday with the car. Your boxes of wine do fit nicely under the seats and in the footwell, cap it with the blanket.
