1998 Scenic Sills

My 1998 Scenic had an MOT today. It failed on O/S front to rear brakepipe corroded and O/S Outer Sill had corroded towards the rear wheel. The brakepipe is no problem. However trying to get a sill was like looking for gold in a bed of pearls!! I tried numerous places including body panel shops. Although I thought the qouted price of around 41 inc vat was good, no-one had any and could not get one currently. So with dismay I contacted the local Renault Dealership. Yes they could get one, great or so I thought until I asked how much. Over 200 inc vat!!!!! So to anyone looking for the same, beware of the main agents. How they can justify the price of nearly 5x more than a car body spares supplier I don't know. I was very surprised that the sills are so hard to get with such a popular Renault. I have emailed Eurocarparts in the slight hope they may be able to supply me with a sill. Other than that, I am going to put a repair patch on until I am able to get a full sill. If anyone has links to somewhere I can get one within the next 10 days or so, I would be very grateful.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I suspect the genuine sill will include the door steps and much more of the bodywork than the aftermarket ones.The genuine ones will also fit,the aftermarket ones will require work.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
