I was driving the other night when I heard a bang on the side of my car. I got out and couldn't see anything other than a group of hoodies on the road side.

The next day, in daylight, I noticed that the offside side skirt was cracked from an impact and there was red brick dust on the damage. Don't want to claim on my insurance so I now have to decide whether it is repairable which will require a paint job or whether I can get one from someone breaking a car...... ideally in my colour.

Anyone with an offside side skirt for sale for a 2001 51 plate 156 2.0 TS Veloce please let me know..... especially if it is black.

More than annoyed!

Without meaning to hi-jack Sensible's thread, how do you re-fit side skirts?

Mine are coming loose at the back doors, on both sides.

To do it properly, take them off, clean up the surfaces, remove all the factory rubber stuff that holds on the middle, repaint anywhere paint has flaked off (I'm thinking wheel arch areas), then run a line of Sikaflex or Tigerseal along the flat edge, hold it to the car while another person screws them in from below. Then wedge it on with bits of wood for about 8 hours while it cures.

I did a guide ages ago when I had my JTD:

If I'm able to repair mine by taking it off, putting some fibreglass from behind and some filler from the front, this is good advice for replacing it... so thanks to Pud237
