Re: Clio III nearside trim, replacement possible?

The strip will either be stuck on or clipped on. Use the old bodyworkers trick.. Slide a piece of nylon fishing line betwen the trim and the panel starting at the door edge - using a sawing action try to pull it forward - if it stuck then the adhesive will come away - if not then its clipped on.

Using a small block of wood or hard rubber try to tap the trim rearwards - if it moves then it clipped.

When replacing such trim be preapred to get new clips of body trim double sided tape.

Judging from where the missing piece was I would bet on it being clipped on.
