Hi, last week an elderly friend managed to kick the plastic trim by the door sill off its mountings , I went to put it back and found that a clip was missing, I've looked around the internet but can't find anything like it , its sort of oblong white plastic with a triangular bottom that clips into the door sill and the top has two slits that slide into a clip on the moulding, the clip is around I" long much bigger than those I have seen for sale - the car is a 2006 1.6 VTR with half leather trim.. any help you be most welcome - thanks..

Hi jon_boy, welcome to the forum,

Do you have a picture of a clip that you still have on the car, can you attach it to the post.

Have a look at this list of C3 clips to see if you can match one.

I am not sure which panel you mean has been kicked off, if you can attach a photo of that too, it would help.

Thanks C3car , I have stuck it down with tape but it won't hold for long, its the trim at the bottom on the door frame, there is a rubber strip between it and the door sill, it curves up and clips at one end near the glove box and the other goes about hallway past the passenger seat - I have check the clips on Ebay but they are much too small

Got the clips this morning, they were actually cheaper, £1.08p for 10, the part number on the bag says 16 064 256 so it may have changed
