Also did search on a thp200 came out with the same part numbers.

The system didn't ask for a year of make.

Have you tried ebay the are breaking a couple of cars on there, is yours badly damaged have you though about getting a wrap done on it, might be cheaper and you can get the look you want.

Thanks for the information, much appreciated.

A bit rude of me to jump in and start asking questions I know, but in my defence I was having a breakdown after finding a dent in my arch.
Once sorted I will be saying hello in the appropriate manner.

No problem we are friendly around here.


Have you thought about filler in the dent and then wrap?
Obviously you would have to get the other one done as well, unless you want that type of look!!:D

Has anyone taken one off ? I'm worried I'll end up with a pile of broken clips and an expensive trip to the main dealer.

Clips arent that expensive. Dealers are often the cheapest for oem parts, its just the labour they charge a lot for.

A couple of people have had new windscreens and that required the arches to come off. So they may be able to help :)

The windscreen repair company removed both arches to replace the screen. It seemed to be quite an easy job from what I recall, but then I'm sure the technician had done it before, no doubt doing it the first time would take longer.

I remember he taped up the bottom front of the arches before removing them, as he said if not, they would get scratched against the bodywork during removal.

Not a lot of info-sorry, but hope it helps. :eusa-think:

The guy turned up to replace my screen. I went inside & half an hour later I came out to offer him a drink. :wtf:

Instant thought was, WTF is he doing? I only wanted the screen replacing!

He explained that some cars require a little more dismantling to do the job. :shock: hope that's the last time they have to come off. :eusa-think:

Thanks everyone, I've found a wrapper with a body shop who's (hopefully) gonna fill the dent and wrap it. I'll post before and after photo's if it's successful.

Wonders how you got a dent in the arch to begin with?? :shock:
Despite three temporary bans and various warnings, I continued to behave like a dick and got banned permanently.

Purchased the car on Saturday knowing it had a few paint issue's, all rectifiable within the budget. Drove it home, parked up and as I was admiring it through the window I spotted the dent I'd completely missed. Really took the shine off my day.
