After our little bump a few weeks ago, we had quotes for doing the small area, best part of £400 plus VAT.
We are going to have a bash (literally!) at getting it out, but also looked at getting a new panel, or a secondhand one.
The complete rear quarter panel is £600+ and includes the light/corner panel. The corner panel can be bought for £220 plus VAT.
Looking at the job in RAVE, it is an all-bolted assembly, the corner panel though is spot welded to the quarter panel, and I'd guess you'd want to pull the lot to do a proper job.
We picked up a secondhand corner panel and window from Skan4X4, no aerial in the window, but that's not a problem.
You get the corner of the body structure as well, so it's quite a lump, with sharp edges where it had been cut out of the bodyshell.
Had some time to play today, so we tackled getting the exterior panels that we want, off the bodyshell corner which we didn't.
Word of advice: Take a GOOD look at it all round before you start. The main fastenings are M6 drive bolts, plus other stuff hidden behind trim and under the wheelarch.
The black sealer is 'very' tenacious, we had to gently prise the panel away from the bodyshell and run a Stanley knife down the joint to cut the strands of sealer.
There's a row of bolts at the top inside which we missed. There is also a stiffener brace at the very bottom of the main panel which is rivetted to the panel.
It gradually came away with no damage or distortion, we cut the bodyshell remains up, but salvaged a few bits like door strikers etc first.
Then we had to clean off the sealer.
There is a light beige putty-like sealer along the top exterior joint and the black mastic stuff everywhere else.
The black sealer dissolves in thinners, but we found that it could be rolled up with a thumb and pulled off.
So, we next have to get the window glass out, and that sealant removed before we can get the panel rubbed down and painted.
