Im sure a coathanger is cheaper. Mine are posh, they are 316L food grade stainless welding rod....

Yes, the hanger is a lot cheaper and so are the wiper blade metal strips, it's just that these seem to have exactly the correct angle & sized hooks. And what about the moulded grips? ;) But, I got to admit 316L sounds far more impressive! :D

I bought a comand from MBenzNL about 10 years ago and this set was included in the box, as you say a great purpose made tool... he also included the official mb long wedge tool.:bannana:

Just reckoned it was worth posting these which are for sale on eBay. Worth the eleven quid as they are so handy and saves messing about making a d.i.y set.

Just read you post, these pullers are still available at £12.99 (nowt gets cheaper?) so thank you, I only want to clean the glass/perspex as there's dust on the inside!

As Alps I have always pushed the cluster out from behind, as I have seen some nasty damage done to the cluster from the incorrect use of the pullers.

Good tip on the push from behind method. I have used pullers before, not a pretty sight when they lose grip.
