It's probably been asked to death but I'm after the latest info on sources for rear quarter repair arches for a W208 CLK430.
I've just brought a snotter off EBay which I already love but it needs some TLC
Thanks in advance
I've got one w208 clk320 with the very nice original brabus body kit.
I was going to break but decided to bring it back to its glory. Planing to sort out the rusts I've got on rear wheel arches and needed clean rear wheel arches.
If anyone is breaking one with clean body please give me...
Hi guys. I have a 2002 W211 with rust on the lips of both rear arches whichI want to catch early. I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who has had it fixed and how long it lasted.
I can see where detrius collects behind the lip. I'm thinking pressure wash regularly to hopefully delay...
So I've had a black series body kit on my CLK 500 for a few months now, just recently I'm noticing a few parts of the arches are sort of "denting in", if that's somehow possible, one part, the paint has a tiny crack seemingly where it's changed shape with the dent and cracked a bit, I will...
Hello all, you may have seen my other post about new car (new to me)
it needs some money spending on it
one of my main gripes with the car is a faulty electric wing mirror
the passenger wing mirror will not adjust electronically, interesting it will fold in electronically so it must...
I have seen a very nice w123 but it has had chrome wheel arches fitted for over 20 years, car has been garaged so no fading on paintwork.
Question , how are these horrible things fitted and how do you remove them?
Hi any recommendations for reasonably priced body shop or repairer to sort out my rear wheel arches, in newcastle area please, they're starting to bubble up and won't get better by themselves! Thanks in advance
I know the general feeling on them but I am looking for good quality ones that clip on and not screw on. They are going to be used to cover up some rust but it will all be treated and sealed fully but I won't have the funds to paint so chrome is my way forward.
Hi all ! I have a 109 cdi vito I'm looking to tidy her up and she's suffering from the dreaded rear wheel arch rot! Can anyone recommend or know of a company that does replacement arch panels?
Well after wanting a 190 for years, I took the plunge and bought a barn find 2002 3.2 Avantgarde W208 in red for a really silly price!! Mechanically and body could best be described as poor - 3 years in a barn hasn't helped the MB rust reputation! However, mechanically it's now sorted...
Anyone with an estate & probably the saloons too, do yourselves a favour & jack them up, remove the rear wheels & wheel arch liners. The mud & crap build up behind them is unbelievable! I just did mine this morning, around a kilo of mud was removed. Its now all washed down, dried off & waxoyled...
I put on some AMG AERO 1's onto my W124 estate today, I was expecting them to stick out past the arches but it was to a point where I couldn't even turn the steering wheel without it rubbing on the arches! :( what's the resolution for this guys? Thanks, Ash
