Well it finally happened! Caught the plastic trim and put a scratch on it.

How hard are they to replace, it's the one that goes over the rear wheel.

I'm assuming that they just unscrew somehow?

Grrrrr

Hard to see from the picture how bad it is.

You could try and hide it a bit. In the past if I have removed scratches using a hot air gun used for pain stripping or using a mini flammer like the ones chiefs or model makers use.

If you gently heat the area it can disappear but just watch and not burn it.

I have seen trim for sale on eBay in the past.

I noticed a scratch on the front plastic bumper of my wife's mokka when we picked it up. They got a bloke in the next week to sort it, so they can be repaired.
