one of mine is completely missing, ive rung about 15 local wreckers here in adelaide and they are the first parts to go. and you think $167 is bad for a brand new one? Mazda over here quoted me $219 just for one! i reckon they secretly gold plate them

Bugger that, just cut a piece of aluminium or something to shape, paint it, and figure out how to secure it. Lol, then write a how-to for everyone else.

Both of mine are gone now. We really need to figure out a cheap solution. $100's of bucks for a piece of plastic? This is dumb. lol

There is a solution.
Multiple, but still requires a good set of A-pillars.

Take a fibreglass mould of the A-pillar. For someone to do this and recover labour and material costs, you would be selling at $30ish each.
But requires effort and a bit of skill.

I would have done so.. But I sold my BG... So it's a waste of time for me now.

What I would recommend to any Bg owners.... Do t wait for these things to snap...
Go buy a little DIY fibreglass kit (even bunnings sell them) and lay down a couple of layers of glass on the inside of the A-pillar, making sure that you reinforce the mounting tabs too.

Guarantee you will not have any future problems.

Prevention is the key to not continuously forking out stupid money for a piece of plastic.
