Re: 2008 Clio Mangled Sill

If the door opens and shuts without dragging on the catch, the pillars won't have moved far if at all.

Your best bet is to pull the inner sill trim off and lift the carpet to see if damage extends to the floor.
You'll be able to see if the inner sill has moved too.

It's gonna be a big job, whatever you find.
Type ' damaged sill replacement' into youtube and see if theres any vids.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
