    A while ago know some thoughtful soul liberated my tomtom from my car, by sticking a screwdriver through the door where the lock is. It's quite a small hole (i missed it at first), but now i'm thinking of selling the car in the next month or so andit obviously doesn't look great. Without replacing the whole door, could anyone recommend a way to cover it up? A friend of mine recommended popping a scratch cover up sticker over it, but despite looking i couldnt find what he meant.

    It's a 206 in moonstone blue, thoughts anyone?

    A second hand door would be cheap enough mate if you find a decent scrappy, or you could pop on 206info.co.uk and see if any of the forum members have a moonstone door for sale

    Did they knock the lock barrel into the door? I wonder how you can sell with a possible security issue or if the car has rcl if it fails how do you get in?

    Sorry for the late reply, thanks for the info guys! The key stickers look like a good fix, will probably go for those.

    DVD-Man - I wonder too, but you'd have to ask peugeot! The RCL is still intact and the lock functions as normal, i would imagine the mechanism to open the door runs near to the lock barrel itself, and my jamming a screw driver in you can manually release the latch. Not 100% on this though!
