My Bro had a similar incidence in his Mondy he took to a profession to repair & that was just filled & resprayed, I guess it depends on whether anything structural has been damage & the method of repair.

TBH appearance wise the guy made a cracking job of it, you couldn't tell that the sill had been damaged in the first place.

Re: 2005 renault megane damaged sill

Sills can be replaced.. cutting and welding.
The worrying thing(for me) is the damage is on a closed box and you dont really know whats happened inside.
There are a few other sill damage threads around with pics
Im too lazy to go searching for them,but I can link my own easy to find one(for me).
Yes the damage is hardly worth posting about and some of the other threads are more extensive,however, cover any bare metal asap Id say.
Sill gouge fix,kinda
