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.

The part numbers are not identical, each door has its own part number. But why is the left rear more expensive than the other three?

Apologies. I didn't check the middle digits.

As to why the one is expensive I can only think either they sell less than the others so their unit purchase price is higher or its just an error?

Or a batch bought earlier or later where exchange rates varied?

Hi gang,

I fancy putting a set of these guards in, but wasn't sure if it's just a case of making a purchase and they just slot in or are there some kind of mechanism that the doors should have build in?

My Sportline didn't come with these but I'm not sure if the attachment springs are already inside the doors for people like me who wants to add them as an afterthought?

I wouldn’t think that the mechanism would be fitted inside the doors of cars without this option.
You will probably need to acquire the internal mechanism and edge protector for each individual door.
Similar to this...

Thank you.

You are right, after probing the slot on the door, it does need additional kit putting in first.


Many thanks again for your help!

I also have a Sportline and it thankfully doesn't have the door protectors.

My previous Edition did and although on paper they sound like a great idea in practice they are woefully badly designed and implemented. I would strongly recommend that you do not fit them, I think you will regret it.

James,
Really chum, don't wast your. time and money, they are (IMHO) a pain in the @rse! As said above they are poorly designed, poorly built and not fit for purpose. Buy some of these instead.

Alternatively don’t smack your doors into anything hard.... just an idea.

Genius idea.

Problem is that kids don't care about smacking doors into hard objects and also use the doors to help get in/out and can accidentally push them open more. So it's not always as simple as 'don't hit something' and little things like this can actually be handy for certain people.
