2017 Black Side Bottom Molding

I am so disgusted with myself...I have ruined the bottom trim below the doors on the driver and passenger side of my new Outback! I somehow drove through a lane of newly painted white line on a highway and it splashed only on the bottom trim and the splash guards. Thinking it was soft enough, I used a mild scouring pad to try to get the paint off. My trim is now scratched and grayed. It did not affect the molding on the bottom of the doors however.

I've looked on many websites and can't find the molding nor the part number. Any ideas for a part? Is this something I can replace myself or something the dealer should do? I also thought about trying a bumper paint made by Duplicolor. Any thoughts on that?

2017 Black Side Bottom Molding

Try a quality black restorer or aerospace 303. Mine have little pits from sand on the wavy back part of the black under trim. Is soft but better a little damage here than in painted surface.

Each little imperfection when new stings!

Why not just drop by your dealer's parts department? They will gladly look up the part numbers for you.

The dealer is not convenient, but that's what I'll have to do. I'll probably wait for my first maintenance appt. Maybe they'll have something that will help without costing me an arm and a leg!

I am sorry to hear this but it can be replaced and the car will be as good as new

These moldings can be ordered from the following links:
https://subaruonlineparts.com/oemparts/91112AL56A
https://subaruonlineparts.com/oemparts/91112AL57A

Now would be a great time to order some maintenance items as well like filters or wiper blades as orders over $99 ship free!

Please let me know if you have any questions,
Benny
