For some reason Fords have left this on my car on both sides at bottom of door, I have never seen them on any other fiestas.

Its starting to look a mess with the black around the edges.

Stone chip guard, if that was the case would they not be on sills aswell.

No other fiesta i have seen has them on. And my mate has a brand spanking new one, and that does not have them on.


Am not bothered what it's for, whats the best way to remove them.

Warm it with a hair dryer or heat gun to loosen the glue and it should peel back.

Then thiners to try and remove the left over glue. Then soapy water. Finally T Cut. If you dont get it all you will end up with dirt / dust sticking to them bits and looking even worse.

Its not a 5 min job.

thinners won't take the paint off. wd40 or tar remover, just about anything solvent will do it.

Thinners is great for cleaning surfaces.
It can leave a residue which buffs off with a cloth.
I used to prep cars with it before applying vinyl never a problem.
It evaporates when applied.

Thinners will clean your paint brushes wink
