my 2006 c220 cdi sport edition rear outer right sensor played up, im trying to figure out how to remove the rear bump strip which houses the sensors. it is a one piece bump strip going all the way round the bumper.
Went and ordered this when I was drunk the other night
Looks a mare to fit, has anyone fitted one of these:confused:
Must of been off my box :p cost me £34 for a bit of red 3M tape:wallbash::D I thought it was a plastic trim :D that'll teach me for going on Ebay drunk

I managed to mess up last time i was cleaning the car.
I somehow got stuck with the microfiber cloth at a small trim piece at the left side door, when wiping the car clean after washing.
It got partly ripped off.
Now half of it is sitting 2-4mm out, away from the door.
The piece is located...
Has or is it possible to vinyl wrap the aluminium door strips, or does anyone know how hard they are to remove, is it a simple DIY jobbie?
Will I need to get a set of trim removal tools

Does anyone know how to safely remove the chrome strip on the boot on a W205 - i want to either coat it in gloss black or hydro dip it carbon to match my upper and lower heckspoiler (boot lid spolier and lower diffuser/tail pipe surrounds on C63S)
Looking for either the chrome strip or a donor piece of trim including the chrome for a facelifted W124 coupe.
Trim piece is the one directly behind the drivers door on the drivers side.
Old one came loose one end and got bent off in a carwash :(
Finding it hard to source
The offside roof strip (the one that runs front-to-back wit the points for attaching a roof rack) has suddenly decided to lift at the back of the E220.
It looks for all the world as if some kind of clip has failed but I can see anything broken. It just obstinately refuses to go back down and...
Recently I plasti dipped the chrome strip on my tail gate but I wasn't happy with the finish so today I vinyl wrapped it. Sure I could have done it with it still on the car but as I love to fettle I decided to remove it to ensure a perfect finish.
No photos of the first bit but tbh none...
The piece of chrome strip that sits in the plastic immediately behind the front drivers door, in front of the rear arch came loose at one end.
One visit to the carwash just now and it has bent right out.

If it came with some...

Can anyone tell me how to replace the chrome strip on the doors of an 08 E Class? I have the new strip which you can only buy new with the whole door strip but having tried tentatively to pop the old one off it didn't seem to want to move far
Does anyone have any experience of stripping either the 717.413 (W124) or the 717.417 (W202 or W210) manual gearboxes ?
Why do i ask ?
i've converted a 717.417 to suit my W124 (replacing her broken 717.413 gearbox) but would now like to take one completely apart.
