Beardface has ripped my door protector off!

Post by ChrisL » Sun Jan 27, 2019 3:15 pm

In the following video you can see that Beardface has trapped his beard in the door of my car and ripped the door protector off:



As you can see where he has pushed the protector back on as far as it can go, when the door closes the protector gets in the way and doesn't allow the door to close! Naughty Beardface!

In this video he shows how to correct the issue:



In this video Beardface shows us that in order for the door protector to work correctly just pushing it on to its furthest extent doesn't work. In fact you need to use a small screw driver to pull the tab out to it's fullest extent - thus seemingly extending some kind of spring inside the door - before pushing the protector on as far as it will go. You should find a slight "click" as it engages fully. You will notice he uses a small soft cloth in order to avoid scratching the paintwork.

Here you can see that the door that previously wouldnt shut now works fine!



Fortunately now, we don't have to put Beardface across our knee anymore. He's very relieved this isn't necessary too!

If you are unlucky enough to have broken the actual plastic door protector, you can get them relatively cheaply here:

You will notice that they aren't handed but that the front and rear ones share the same part number for each side.

I hope this is useful to someone!

A little harsh. The online manual doesn’t show as mush detail apart from which bread/beard face (doesn’t seem to know which is which on the post) was only trying to give advice and a practical demonstration. Some would find it helpful.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

The point is that you replace the protector with the door open only 15cms and no need to use the screwdriver and risk damaging the paintwork.

Despite the facetious feedback of fellow members, I found this interesting and informative. many thanks for taking the time to write your post.

PS - LOL @ "Breadface" in the title...I thought it was one of my daughter's cartoons...

In our experience that process doesn't always work because the tongue that engaged with the protector doesn't fully engage, and hence doesn't tension the spring.

Rather than moaning and whining, when someone bothers to post to try to save other people effort and money, if you don't like it, STFU.
