Helsinki is obviously a better place to be built if you are a Kodiaq than Kvasiny then! :lol:

Drivers side rear didn’t retract and then a loud clunk as the plastic protector met the door cavity. Then opened the door to see the protector drop on to the floor.
It’s snapped off. The actual mechanism is now loose, it seems to broken inside the door, probably just popped off somewhere. Luckily no damage to the plastic.

It’s booked into the dealer to be looked at on the 15th, interestingly he told me they have had a few problems with these, he was hoping for it to be a recall. I’m hoping it will be done under warranty.

To be fair I’m not fussed about them, and may consider the disconnecting them route if it comes to it.

So took it to Skoda and they repaired it under warranty. All done... great customer service!
