B3 sill panels

Post by Zed. » Sun May 07, 2017 12:42 pm

My '89 B3 has decided that it's suffering from tinworm :shock: so instead of patching the sill I'm looking for a decent panel, any ideas?

Ideally I'm looking for a full sill that joins along the door-rubber seal's 'lip' so any suggestions greatfully received B-)

All the he ones I've seen advertised have generic images and a few I've enquiries about the sellers didn't have stock so it would have been luck as to the fit, size & quality :???:

Any ideas?

The part numbers for the cills (side member) of an 89 B3 are:

357809675 Left

357809676 Right

They are the same part for the saloon and the estate (item 12 in the attached diagram).

There is a seller in Estonia who lists both sides at €17.83 each, which seems pretty cheap to me. The website does not say if they ship internationally, but it is available in English as well as other languages so you could try contacting them through their site or at this address:


Given that Estonia is in the EU I imagine that they probably will send to the UK, (at least for the time being!).

Hope this helps to keep another B3 alive.
