    Hi all,

    My A4 had a bit of a knock on the passenger side and rather than replace the skirt the Previous owner decided to repair it , long story short when the car looks nice and shiny the side skirt looks terrible with dips etc.

    Does the skirt just glue on or is it held in place by clips ? what would you suggest , should i take it to be rubbed down and sprayed again ?

    Thanks in advance!

    They are held on with clips & 3m tape.
    I believe they slide off the clips once you use some glue softener on the the tape

    Thanks for the links , half tempted to order 2 for the same price as im paying as 1 and just bang the other on ebay , unless another A4 owner on the forum needs one :) , should i be worried that they arent genuine ? as surely not much can go wrong ?
