Decorative Sill Covers Fitted To Škoda Yeti

Yesterday I fitted front bumper decorative strips to my Yeti.
Today, I will fit these decorative sill covers.

My Yeti, as most, left the Škoda factory with silver off-road trim to the front and rear as standard

But on the sills... nothing.😕
So these decorative sill covers should finish off the rugged off-road look that I’m going for with my Yeti.
I ordered them online (and a Yeti mouse mat).
They arrived fast.
Let's lay things out and see what's what.
I am also going to need cleaning spirit, double-sided foam tape and my trusty Torx screwdriver set.

By the way, the PE-Foam tape is the same that I used when I fitted
Clearly, I trust it.
The best money can buy if you ask me.

I use the cleaning spirit to lightly wipe over the sills.

what product for cleaning car sills?
There are seven Torx screws to undo.

what is holding a yeti sill?
I think I'll blast them with penetrating fluid or else I risk shearing them.

Good job I keep a can of WD-40 in my Yeti because I'm doing this job in a car park😮

All seven Torx screws are out and they put up no fight.

Now let's offer up a sill cover and check flushness before rushing to bolt it on

Looks like good times.

So let’s put a strip of double-sided foam tape on the outer edge of the sill cover and then reattach the seven Torx screws.
And repeat everything on the other side...

Just a heads up: many of my posts contain affiliate links of products I have bought for my Yeti.
If you buy something from one of these links, you will not pay a penny more.
I will get a small commission, although not every time.
The extra pennies help me to pay the annual cost of the domain name.
I thank you for your support.
