Tear on door trim
« on: 10 August 2011, 09:00:22 AM »
Hi. I've a 2003, 93. I had an accident the other day and tore a small bit of the rubbery fabric, just above the silver strip, on the rear o/s door. Saab say I can't just replace this bit and have to buy a whole door card. Apparently this will cost serious money.

Can anyone suggest a glue or such that will allow me to repair the 'fabric'? I don't want to make it worse by melting it etc or allowing the tear to get worse. I also don't want it to go 'hard' in that area. Ad close to an invisible mend would be my goal, bearing in Ming I'll have to do it and I'm pretty ham fisted.  ;)

Any suggestions? Thanks. Optimus

You could also try a breaker.

Salvo Group or Neo Brothers etc. Most likely have what you want.

Thanks. I'd been considering a breakers but was thinking not many would have been scrapped or written off. I'll try the ones you suggest. I also wasn't really sure what the material was so thanks for that too!
