Following two separate encounters with bollards, the NSR door of our 05 Renault Grand Scenic needs to be replaced.
I've been quoted around £400-500 to do this work 'properly' at a body shop but was wondering whether there were some corners I could cut.
The garage above will source a new door from the Renault dealership, respray it to match, respray surrounding body work and sill. However, the vast majority of the damage is on the door only and I think that the new door will improve the aesthetics by 95%.
As scenic doors are relatively easy to source from
/ espares and our colour (cobalt blue) is also relatively popular, I was wondering whether I'd be able to find a door which at least matched the rest of the bodywork. Fitting this would require no respraying.
However, our scenic has colour coded door handles and the majority of doors I've looked at have silver ones.
My specific questions are as follows:
1. If I bought a new replacement door, would it be possible for a garage to swap its silver door handle with a blue one from the old dented door? Or is this not worth the hassle.
2. If I bought a new 'bare' replacement door is it relatively easy for a garage to transfer the trim / window / electrics from the old door to the new?
Thanks in advance! Any other advice would be much appreciated.
