I need to clarify, is the door sill 'scuff plate' shown in the diagram above attached with adhesive only, i.e., removed with hair dryer & floss? I'm looking to replace the stock Carrera scuff plates.

Thanks,

Alex

Hi Alex,

They are attached by adhesive only and I've heard that they are difficult to remove. I suggest a hair dryer and a plastic putty knife.

Keep us posted,

Jeff

:thankyou: Jeff. That's a lot of adhesive, X 2, sounds like one of those weekend projects. The 3M remover does work but it still takes a lot of elbow grease. I just replaced my rear lid logo and I used it then.

All the best,

Alex

Only the original tape preinstalled on a new sill is strong enough to resist all weather conditions, i have still no found a after market tape with the same qualities. Some amount of front windshield kit can help you out, but TAKE NOTE once the sill is installed with kit, he ( she?) is very difficult to remove.

If you go on 3M's webite youi will see they have a tape made for body accessorries etc. This works very well. If you get their adhesive promoter that also is a very good product. Be sure to finally clean the surface surface with rubbing alchohol before applying the new double sided tape.

Here is a link for the tape. http://products3.3m.com/catalog/us/en001/a...ler/output_html

I had to reapply one of my sills because i didn't properly prepare the surface and the tape lost adhesion. This is the tape I used to fix the problem and it works great. For the tech people here attached the specs on the tape.

Success
