Unhappy Vanished panel replacement

Hi

I went out to wash our 500 lounge today and discovered the passenger side windscreen pillar panel (please see photo) had disappeared, could anyone please recommend a source for a replacement?

Many thanks

Mike

Re: Vanished panel replacement

Seen a few do this and its a bit odd as they seem to be quite secure. A call to your local dealer should sort. I dont think they are that expensive.

Skoda dealerships tend to be really good for 500 bits.

These often need replacing when the rubber perishes. See https://www.fiatforum.com/500/452534...er.html?452534
Maybe someone has borrowed yours for that reason...

Ask your FIAT dealer for the part, it’s not expensive. You want the gloss-black version for the Lounge, rather than the matt black Pop/Sport/Abarth version.

I think heís being sarcastic, saying in a backhand way that obviously a FIAT dealer is the source rather than any other dealer

Re: Vanished panel replacement

Many thanks all, very much appreciated and it explains why it might have vanished. I was hoping someone might have one from breaking a 500 but didn't realise there were gloss and matt versions (thanks again typecastboy) Now I'm in the know I'll contact the local dealer.
