Golf MK6 Paint Question

I recently bought a used Japanese import Golf which had plastic wind deflectors attached to the doors. They were all attached with double sided foam tape and came off easily, except for one spot where the previous owner must have used superglue or similar. While removing, it's left a residue of approx 1cm x 5cm on the passenger door frame.

The sensible thing to do would be to give it to a bodyshop to fix, but I think this glue residue could be removed with some patient wet and dry and perhaps a polish but I'm cautious that I could go through the paint quite easily as it's quite uneven.

The paint code for the car is LC9X which is a metallic deep black but the section around the doorframe looks like a more basic gloss black and I figure if I do need to retouch the paint here I'll need to get some of this paint as well as a suitable primer and lacquer.

Firstly, does anyone know what paints I'll need to do this is and secondly, once I've bought them all as well as the fine grit paper and bought a polisher etc, would it be worth just giving it to a bodyshop?

Based in Auckland, New Zealand if it's helpful.

I could be wrong here, but I think those pieces are actually plastic and can come off easily.

You might get lucky using rubbing alcohol and a blue scotch brite without damaging it.

Golf MK6 Paint Question

That part is plastic, I damaged one of mine a while ago in an auto car wash that turned out was faulty, I actually bought two by accident and still have a new one but I think itís for the other side!
Hereís one on Ebay http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/OEM-Black...-/161750465963

They are also reasonably cheap at the dealership.

Golf MK6 Paint Question

To fit it you need to open the rear window and door the pull away the rubber seal in the glass channel and also the strip at the top of the door/bottom of glass intersection, this will reveal 3 torx screws in the window channel if I remember correctly then itís just a case of fiddling with it until it comes off, fitting is just the same but in reverse, you might have to mess with the rubber that seals the rear door up to the front door too but I canít remember as it may have just slipped under that piece!

BE CAREFUL NOT TO DROP THE SCREWS INTO THE DOOR!

Thanks so much guys, that's really helpful and looks like it will be much less of a job than expected. Much appreciated.
