clio door mouldings

hi folks

just looking to know the best way to remove the door mouldings on an 02 reg clio. also, i am going to paint these the same colur as the car. do they need to be sanded down or can they just be primed painted and lacquered without sanding?

Hi mate, not sure about your car but on my Lag the strips are held on with special adhesive, the old way of removing them was to use fishing line and drag it along the underside of the strip but I'm sure one of the guys will answer you soon.

on the quarter moulds, open the front door and place some tape on the edge of the paint work where the mould meets the door gap, place a flat bladed screw driver betwwen the tape and the mould and lift the moulding out over, and then pull the moulding towards the door and its off

the door mould remove the end badge,should say 1.2 or 16v ar renault sport,place a flat bladedscrew driver under the cap,not the moulding and lift gently or you will break it,then once its moved of the clips do the same to the top
once off push the full moulding back and place the screw driver under the back edge of the door and lift and it will slide off

job done

I would agree with the above, and would always recommend giving the items a light sanding to dull the surface and provide a good surface for the primer to 'key' to. It also gives the benefit of removing any surface contaminants which could spoil the finish. There's no need to be too aggressive with the sanding, just a general rub down with some 400 grit before priming, then use 800 - 1200 between coats will see you fine. Allow plenty of time for the job though - if you rush it, you will regret it. Needless to say, do this under cover in a warm, dry (yet well-ventilated) environment.

All the best,


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