So my car was parked in a the garage the other night, and one of my family members just had to get some beach chairs from behind a shelf for the following day. As I was reaching for the chairs, I told my family member to watch on the radio boxes so it doesn't fall. Of course the little 2 pound box fell and hit the trim of my car on the passenger side door. I called kia to get a replacement part, it’s about $30.00. The only problem is, the panel of the door has to come off from the inside to screw new clips that broken off.
Personally I think the trim on the kia soul is poorly designed. The clips are cheap plastic and broke off without hardly any force. The box was not that heavy and barley touched the trim, but that’s all that needed to break off the tiny little clip on the trim. The 30.00 part is not what I am angry about. It’s the labor cost involved in taken the side door panel off is what I am pissed about.
I wonder If I can myself remove the door panel, or hopefully find a car buddy of mine who can do it for way cheaper then $75.00 and hour that the kia delarship will most likley charge.
