    I was amazed (and horrified) to find that the EXTERNAL door trim to the rear
    of the driver's window frame is nothing more than sticky-on plastic! (406

    Because some idiot didn't fix it properly in the factory (about a six-inch
    strip along the edge of the door was left sticking up) the elements have
    dried it out and it is now badly cracked and breaking-up.

    Has anyone had this problem and is it possible to buy some replacement
    material? (It is not much better than 'Fablon' ! )

    Yes, mine is splitting away at the leading edge.
    I don't know but I will watch this post with interest.

    I thunk you'll find that all the doors have this stick on black trim,
    and it usually last quite well, as long as it is fitted properly in
    the first place (as you have found out). It is available as a kit (all
    the doors) I believe. At least it is on the 306 so I guess the 406
    would be the same.

    The black plastic trim is freely available from Pug main dealers and it
    comes in individual pieces so you shouldn't have to buy a whole set
    (unless you want to). Replaced the small piece of trim just under the side
    repeater after it had been knocked off and was pleasantly surprised to find
    it only cost about £3 to get. Think the longer door strips will be a lot
    more, but not extortionate they are normally stocked in parts dept. but
    can be ordered in less than a week.

    Good luck

    That's a very helpful and cheering reply, thank you.

    I will try the main dealer and post a report on the outcome.

    Many thanks.
