10plate Meg III Coupe - Side Bump Strips

Hello. Apologies if this is in the wrong bit of the forum.

I'm trying to find somewhere that sells Bump Strips for the Megane III. I've managed to break off the rear-body bump strip on the drivers side (caught it on something as I was getting out.

So in this pic, it's the smaller of the black bump strips, on the body rather than the door:

Renault want 50 for it (!!!) which is ridiculous for a bit of plastic. I've tried a few breakers but they're all out - does anyone have any idea where else one might look for renault megane bits?

Kind regards,

Ahmed24 ,a poster here might have some as he changed to rs side mouldings.
Try some of his contact methods or a pm.
50 is a lot but some of the parts prices Ive seen ,it doesnt sound unusual.

The clips that hold it on,my personal advice is to get three new ones, bout 70p each.
edit:Put them on the moulding , not the car

Definitely would recommend repair rather than replace.

Coup's suggestion of clips is sound, if it's no longer a flush-fit (if it buckled), I would recommend a black PU Seam Sealer and a mastic gun would sort it out.

It can be fixed for less than 10.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
