Crazed B Pillar wear

Hi all,

I have some odd wearing on my b-pillar (specifically the back door). Don't know how it was caused but came like it from previous owner.


Is it possible to take off the plastic trim and replace or is there a way I can closely match the stippled finish with some paint or wrapping? Ideally I'd like to replace but not sure if its possible.

Can anyone please advise? The car is a 2007 Facelift 147.

I suspect it is like the 156, which is just a sticker (could be wrong, haven't checked ePER).
So remove & fit new sticker.

The wear will just be from washing.

It doesn't look like a sticker. Almost more like its a stippled matt paint.

Just wondering if the whole section can be removed?

I replaced mine (156) using a carbon effect vinyl wrap. The original pulled off easily after heating up with a hair dryer. Shocked at the original colour BTW, just shows how much Alfa red fades!

If its the same as the three door 147 then it is a metal panel with a 'finish' applied that cant be removed, options would be to wrap it as previously mentioned or try and get a matching paint to repaint it.
