156 Side Skirts

My 2004 facelift Veloce sideskirts are noticeable coming away at the front of the car. They're in a pretty bad way and appear to be 'bent' away from the car. I asked my local Alfa specialist to have a look at them but they said they couldn't do anything.

Is it worth taking to a body shop to have them repaired or can anybody recommend any aftermarket side skirts that fit well with original front & rear bumpers?

I'll try get some pictures tomorrow in the daylight.

Did you sort the problem?
If not, try this but you'll need a dry not freezing day.

Clean up as much as you can or even take them off altogether and remove all the old black double sided foam adhesive strips and clean with white spirit.

Re adhere with, believe it or not, 'No More Nails' or other DIY bonding equivalent.

Mine have lasted from last spring, with no sign of pulling off again.

Dont forget to clamp / hold them firmly in place, whilst they cure. A few hours. you'll probably need to leave the doors open, while your doing this for access, so a safe place is needed.

Good luck, its the cheapest way, I could find and it really works!

Will these side skirts fit on 156 facelift 2004?

Remove skirt entirely. You may loose a couple of original plastic anchor points but it wont matter. Clean both the side skirt and sill with elbow grease & white spirit. I used a scouring pad on the plastic. Refit. masking tape on the top edge of the skirt and just above the line on the sill where skirt will meet it. squeeze a line of Sikaflex (from Screwfix) about the thickness of toothpaste along the sill. Apply skirt and stick in place with duct tape. 12 hours later it will be stuck solid. Remove duct tape and masking tape.

I did this last week to my 156 V6, after spraying a pair of silver skirts off another car:

Beware and wear gloves

The expression "sticks like sh8 to a blanket" was invented for Sikaflex. It also sticks to your anatomy, clothes, etc. If you get it on your hands no matter what patent hand cleaner you use, it can take weeks to finally get rid of the stains in your fingerprints and nails.

It's brilliant and I'll be using it for my sill trims . . . carefully!
