    Roof Rail covers - Astra H

    Morning all!!

    As per the thread title,

    I've just bought an 5dr 06 plate Astra H with the XP, only it's missing the front roof rail covers. I assume that these are easily obtainable, just not sure where the best place to buy them from would be, nor what the part numbers would be?


    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Right,

    I've since found out that the part number is 13125719 - primed only - VX are willing to charge me £14.10 each which I think is a bit steep. Are there any after market parts available or would I need to go to VX for new ones.

    Failing that....a visit to the local scrap yard

    local scrappy sounds like a good idea to me, that's where I'm heading for a replacement wing mirror cover after the other half decided to break it! no way am I paying Vauxhall prices for a bit of plastic!

    I would just pay the Vauxhall price tbh.

    Over time the thin plastic they are made from becomes brittle and snaps. It only takes a pressure washer at the wrong angle and they are gone! If you go to a scrappers you might pay a fraction of the price, but if the plastic is old and brittle then they will just snap again.

    its not that they've snapped, its that they're not their at all!

    But seriously....£14 for a small strip of plastic?

    I know, its crazy.

    But like I said, you could get some from the scrappies which are old and brittle and will only break in time!

    Main dealers should stock them.

    Alternatively PM @bigphilbaby he works for a main dealer in parts, he might be able to get them and send them over to Ireland for you.

    I went to a Vauxhall dealer for mine and paid £12, it came primed so just needed some paint.
