    I need to remove the front towing eye cover on my UK right hand drive 2003 SLK 320, as the car needs to be winched onto a truck to take away for a repair. Questions I have are : 1. What side is the towing eye on, nearside or offside, as both towing eye covers look the same ? 2. How best to remove the towing eye cover, as I have already tried to remove the offside one, but it doesn't seem flexible enough to easily remove ? Many thanks !

    The towing eye on your 320 is behind the bumper grille on the off side. You can remove the grille by grasping the left and right sides together, tilt it downwards and pull it firmly. To reinstall it's just the reverse, and you'll hear it click back into place.
