back door plastic panel

Recommended Posts

Noticed that somehow i now have a badly cracked plastic panel on the rear passenger door guessing it must have been a stone kick up as no other damage. Almost up to the crease so wish to repair asap but having problems getting off, seems to be some push clips but just where it is tearing it doesn't move. anybody able to give advice or provide manual info how these are fixed.

Have decided that any repair on plastic will not look great so looking to remove all the bottom door panels and will vinyl rap with black carbon effect. what do you recon.

Tacky.....

Just get a new part and replace it once you found out how.

How's that managed to happen?

Would replace if it's a big issue otherwise would just live with it. Looks more like a scratch than a crack

That looks to be an odd place for damage like that. More than a stone could do I'd say...it hasn't come down hard coming off a kerb or something has it? What does the area underneath look like? Any damage there?

No its really weird directly underneath is were it is drilled to fix via a rivet.

No damage to anywhere else and all other fixing in place.

Have spoken to Lexus and a new one comes in close to £180 but I would still have the problem of finding out how to completely remove as even when I took out the fixing on the bottom I still could not get the thing off.

That could be smart repaired and retextured . My RX arrived with a hole and several large cuts in the rear black underbumper.They had it smart repaired and it now looks original
