Wheel Arch Access Panel
This is the panel that you open within the wheel arch in order to change the sidelights, DRLS etc.
Just found that I have the passenger side access panel missing. Probably came loose and as now long gone.
So I visit the dealership and ask the parts dept to order a new panel. They said its not possible as that part is unavailable to buy as it doesn't exist. They said the only way to fix it is to pay for a whole new wheel arch costing £78 ($97) I thought they were joking!!!
Is it really not possible just to buy an access panel. Any ideas what i can do to fill the gap as i am not shelling out for the whole wheel arch for the sake of a bit of plastic.
