Hi, i have searched 4 mercedes forums! all with diff answers ?? some say unscrew - some say pull off - some say you have to take of the door panel! now you can see why i'm asking for some one that has done it and knows 100%

Cant remember now, but it has been covered before do a search.

Is that the same for the W211?

rear ones on the w211 are pigs, they do screw out but are really tough and are shorter than the front ones which screw out easily

Quick update! just replaced my Door locking pins to the new original mercedes chrome ones, it took all of 3 mins to do, as some members have said its only unscrewing them and screwing the new ones on, thanks to the members that replied, :) car looks that little bit classier :)

got some of flea bay, with the black amg on the top, coming from the states though as most of the stuff was from china, and i never like the quality. but in todays world most things are made in china, it seems to be one of the only manufacturing economies that exist
