Unsuccessful break in, damaged door part question.
I've been absent for a while on here, and my first post was supposed to be about my new interior seats not about some jackass trying to break in and fail at doing so, but as a result left me with a "souvenir"
I don't know what or why ... whoever tried to get into my car was a complete dumbass, I'd rather be happy with having my window smashed than this.
In my 4 door, the left rear door, the thin pillar got all pried off and bent out of shape, I don't know if the "thief" thought he could get the small window out or what, but before he succeeded my alarm went off and off he went.
Now I have a damaged pillar and weather strip.
My question is, can that small pillar be replaced by itself, or is it a part of the whole door/window frame?
I'm attaching a diagram of what exactly got damaged to make it more clear. If anyone has any ideas I would kindly appreciate it!
i Think you can get that part But you will have to Ask the dealer to get it or search ebay for Parts cars and email the seller to just get that part

Thanks for the responses guys. The car is a 2000 323i. I will dig around some more to see what I can get. I will try one of the junk yards and see if I can get it that way.
Last month they stole my roof spoiler and trunk spoiler, I got over it, replaced it and this time used a super bond to keep it in place. I hate thieves, especially when they steal from other BMW owners to trick their own.
Thank slimx. I was looking at that part earlier, but it turns out that this is actually the inner rubber seal that is inside the car not outside. I found it on another site where they actually have a full size photo of it. So am still wondering about the metal piece outside. I will probably end up removing the rubber seal and see if this is somewhat attached to the exterior part of the door.
But thanks for looking it up for me!! Much appreciated!
