Hi

I've got an 06 Laguna Initialle an on the bodywork below the rear passenger door there's what looks like some plastic over the bodywork (it's clear), I'm scared to pull it off incase it's meant to be there?

Can anyone advise?

Thanks

Sounds like the laquer that protects the paint is starting to peal off.

I haven't got a clue about paint but I wouldn't pull it off :(

I'm sure someone else will be able to advise you what to do.

It's not a thin coating of plastic, its quite thick and it's the exact same on the opposite side of the car. It's as if when the car was new it had some plastic coating to project certain bits and these bits having been removed?! If I can I'll post some pics but I'm useless at uploading photos :(

Managed to get a picture and upload, as you can see it's a large(ish) area it's quite thick plastic! Any ideas?

Looks like some kind of stone protection film, you could probably remove it (I am not responsible if it goes wrong)

Hopefully someone will give you a definitive answer now you have posted a picture.

Now you mention it that would make sense I suppose, let me get another picture that's a bit better

Attached is a better picture where you can see me pulling the edge of the plastic back. I'm not too fussed about leaving it on, just want to know what it's for??

Cheers mate! Seems like the logical thing I suppose, maybe I should skulk around car parks checking on other Lags!! Lol

Its a paint protection film designed to prevent debris from chipping exposed & protruding areas.

I wouldn't remove it.

I'm happy to leave it on now I know what it is, just I'd never seen or heard of anything like this before

Once again thanks all for the replies :)

Must only come on Initiales (that is if it wasn't added by the dealer or owner)... I've never seen it before!
