146 side skirt broken clip

Hey guys,

Hope you are all well. The ****ty garage I recently went to, to get my tire changed, has taken the wheel off & whacked the side skirt (drivers side)

the ******'s 'glued' it back on... I repeat... 'GLUED' IT BACK ON!!!!!!!! ******s! Needles to say... i drove home... went over a speed bump... &... ping... off it comes! I guess thats what happens when you glue cars together

I now have a 1 inch gap between the skirt & the body of the car.

It looks like the clip holding the skirt on has been broken. the car is fine to drive... you wouldnt even notice unless your up close, but I can't leave it like that!

Does anybody know where to get the clips from (ebay mabye) & how hard it is to do this myself?

Thanks guys,

my local garage done the same but at least they admitted doing it & they ordered clips from alfa then replaced all the clips on both sides free so i guess a call to your local dealer & they can order the clips for you

Mine has done the same apart from it seems the skirt itself has been damaged, its ben like it since I had the car.
I've been looking for a set of skirts, but I've given it up for a moment because you won't notice due to the dented rear quarter and door
