    i really don't know mate, but he mentioned it to me a few weeks ago as he'd bought one! might be reasonable enough, in my experience if you order the part then call back the next day or whatever to collect and pay for it you can talk up to 20% off anyways

    I have the same problem too. Had a quote from the stealership of £55! And that was just for the pad and not the entire door card! Needless to say I didn't buy buy it. Been looking on eBay but rarely do they come up!

    sounds like a common problem as said so will try a few breakers first before taking a deep breath and phoning the stealers lol

    I have the exact same problem. I think it's from whenever I open the door, I always push that area to open it. Found a video of how it can be repaired. Not too sure where to get the kit from or how much it will cost though.

    I have the part number at home - will get it this evening.

    The crack will only get worse and will end up nipping your elbow.

    The part is reasonablye enough, I dont think it cost as much as £30 but I will look later this evening.

    it must be a weak point because quite a few people have the same problem the material must be to thin or something

    Mine had a crack from the elbow rests on it when I bought the car and it progressively got worse. Managed to get a replacement with the 2nd interior. :)
