    Lots of Mercedes!
    its pretty easy my friend.

    Buy some trim fix adhesive spray from ebay.

    Open bonnet all the way up so its vertical.

    Put some sheets over your engine.

    Clean away old bonnet mat carefully with a scraper.

    Spray lots of adhesive on the bonnet and on the back of the mat. fix it into place with an assistant. You will only have a few seconds before it starts to set!

    Then you will have to keep pressing on it to get it to stick evenly. I normally use a couple of large brroms to hold the centre of the pad and then just work my hands around the pad until the glue sets.
