Door ‘triangle’ broken.

Post by HyperGrade » Fri Dec 22, 2017 8:57 pm

Hi guys,

The ‘door triangle’ (can’t think of a better name for it) is broken at the top clip holding it in place.

Can anyone tell me if that’s a part that you can get on its own, or whether it possible to remove that to try to repair it?
It also broken on the part thats flush with the window.

Thanks in advance.

Put your car's details into www.realoem.com and you should be able to find the part number.

Something like part 10 or 11, depending on your vehicle (I chose one at random, so it'll probably be a different part number for yours), but yes, you can get it seperately.

Door card off to get at it IIRC, and depending on damage it might be repairable. There are a few guides on here for that, or a quick search on Youtube should give you the info you'll need. I think you'll need a torx, and be prepared to pull hard enough that you think you'll break card to pull the clips out of the door frame.
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.

Thanks, just come back to reply to the above and have found the same result as you. It’s a pain, and I found quite a bit of the door card isn’t attached at the bottom, so I think a whole removal job is in order to work it out.
Cheers!

New clips are cheap from dealers.

Hi Tweeky, so sorry for the slow reply but I’ve not been back here until now.
Thanks a lot for the offer but I ended up getting one off eBay for £14. Took it apart yesterday and found that someone had been in the door before and done a really bad job of putting it back together. The door never gave a clean ‘clunk’ and it’s obvious why.
They managed to crush 5 of the clips in the process and lose the screw that goes behind the cover in the door pocket, so I’ll need to get one of those.
Thanks again for the generous offer, appreciate it!

Yep, cheers. They were free in my case, but I spend enough with them! :P
