    W203 estate tailgate striker/hoop loose

    Tha hoop thing that the tailgate catches on is very loose on my car, how do I get to the bolts holding it? I've removed the 4 screws holding the surrounding trim but it won't budge and even if it did, is that the right way to go about it? Thanks

    Looking to buy one of these, anyone with experience? I Like the look at Robomower RC304, really only because it looks to be good at edges so leaves very little for the trimmer.
