Hi there.

You don't say how old your scenic is (if its under warranty - take it to the garage, and ask them for an explanation why this has occured if they believe it not to be a warranty issue).

Plastic is resiliant, but where the split has occured, may be close to an anchorage point (which will be stiffer than the remainder of the panel). Plastic can be repaired (either by heat or plastic welding), but the wing would need to come off.

I don't know how much a new wing would cost - plus, there would be painting to include.

I'm sure I've read about wings cracking - conduct a thread search, and you should spot some.

Hope you get this resolved.


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