It ended up scuffing the paint on my door frame so they have been permanently removed.
Yeah, one of my fears as per my earlier post; one of them protruding when you shut a front door (which must weigh quite a bit) is going to make a mess of the paintwork on your door edge.

When you get in or out of any of the doors, your footwear might make a mess of the sills of the car.

Are you going to take your shoes off too?

Thinking about it, it is also possible that windscreen wipers might cause scratches to the windscreen. You'd better remove the windscreen wipers as well!

Apologies, your attempt at some sort of sense of humour went right over my head.

But I'm sure that's my problem, not yours :shock:

Guys,

Not been on here for ages. I probably missed lots of good tips, posts, spats and jokes.

My lease will be up for renewal within the year and it seems I have lost one of the dreaded door protectors (right side, back).

I had a look on here for links to websites that may sell these, but the only one I found was on a different thread ("Beardface") which links to the the Skoda Shop which seem to no longer list this part.

Does anyone else know where I may find these door protectors?

I think it is fair to assume that any dealer will mark the final value downwards while this part is missing.

Ignore that.

The Skoda Shop UK do have them.
I must have been looking in the wrong places.

But if anyone knows if I can get those Isofix clips + covers somewhere, please give me a shout.
I think (should check) I may be short on one of those too.

Poxy plastic pieces!

Probably cost pennies to make.
Yet a small fortune to replace.

The next time, I am going to remove such parts myself and keep them safe in storage.
Spare wheel compartment might just be the place.

Luckily not standard on all models now, I was so pleased that my Sportline didn’t have them, my previous Edition did and they were nothing but hassle. It went back with them all in the glove box as I lost the will to live with them.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.
