    Hi, I want to take off the trim mouldings on my w210 estate that go along the doors and continue onto the bumper in order to paint them from scratches from cars opening their doors etc, is this easy , how do you remove the bumber ones and also the moulding strips on the doors?

    One other thing as my car is white these mouldings appear to be a slightly darker white greyish white I heard Mercedes say in the dealers . Where is this code also.

    thks

    There is a screw on the inside of the door which you need to undo completely then pull along the length of the door backwards and the pieces should slide out. Be careful otherwise you will break the plastic fittings.
