Anyone have issues with exterior lower door panels pooping off on 2016 discovery sport ? Any ideas where to buy one other than dealership. Have looked online at length but haven’t had any luck.
Thanks is in advance

Have you lost it? Then go to a dealer or a wrecking yard. If it just pooped get new clips from dealer.

Same. Driver's side lower door trim pops off from the middle retaining clip and the panel bows outward. It happens at least once a month, and I pop it back on. I haven't lost it yet, but it's probably just a matter of time.

I have encountered the same issue on the same side. I have tried re-installing the piece but to no avail as it keeps popping off when I drive.

I am thinking of replacing just the clips to see if that the issue. On other cars that I've had thats sorted out the problem. A pack of 415 assorted clips only costs $16.95 AUD so it is definitely cheaper than going to a dealer for a brand new trim piece.

A quick up date on the situation. I went through all the offical documents about the trim piece from JLR and found that the clips are non-reusable. I have attached the appropriate document to this message.

This means to fix the issue, we all need to completely remove the panel and replace all 12 clips.

Sooo... similar issue, sort of.. Went off road and ran over a thick branch hiding in the dirt that ripped my door rocker trim right off.. which I then ran over. Doh.

Dealer wants $289 for a new one.. curious if anyone knows anywhere else to get a replacement in Santorini Black?

I’m also wondering if there’s any after market rock sliders anyone knows of?

I have the dynamic edition and have been starting to use it off-road more.. debating adding some more off-road protection.

G/day,

If you still have the piece I would recommend just buying the clips. Those pieces of trim are notorious for coming off.

It's hard to find a replacement as they are still being manufactured by JLR so only they can make them, I would suggest going to a few dealerships and asking if they will sell you the part and clips.

As regards to your to rock slider question, the only one I know you can get in the US are the factory side steps.

You could go to a fabrication shop and ask if they are will to make you some custom ones.

Thanks. Yeah unfortunately when I subsequently ran it over I may have damaged some of the clips and plastic “brackets” a bit too much, but I have to really take a good look at it to see if it’s salvageable. Plus, there is at least one crack approximately 2” in size, but I haven’t figured out where it would be when mounted back on, yet.

I was just figuring if I’m going to spend $300 on one panel, maybe spend a little more and just replace them all with some decent looking rock sliders and go for some smaller wheels/bigger/grippier tires.

Ah well!
