C pillar

Post by glennyboy2 »

Can’t seem to find a Right side C pillar repair panel anywhere. The bottom 6” inches of mine have rotted out and I can’t see if it fixes anywhere to the inner sill.Anybody done this repair and can share some photos please.

Have you got some images of the area, it maybe that somebody on the forum may have an idea if it can be repaired or replaced.

Thanks for that. I’ve actually got that same panel, genuine VW. Look at the shocking fit against a JK inner sill!

That’s with the inner C pillar in the right place. I was really looking for a photo of the bottom of the C pillar.

This whole area is a can of worms.

I think all the panels need some kind of persuasion to get them to fit nice, some better than others.
