    W211 E320 CDi Estate, R129 Brabus SL500 (SOLD)
    I needed to remove mine to get to the bolts to replace a dented front wing.
    Straightforward to remove but getting it back on is another thing!
    It's the top white clips I cannot get to fit, no matter what angle i approach the skirt from and where or how much I apply pressure.
    The same clips seem to be used on the CLS and S class of the same era.
    The clips are like these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/20x-Trim...152621008150?_trksid=p2385738.m4383.l4275.c10 I should have taken a pic but I have it secured just by the lower screw and clips. It's secure enough but doesn't fit flush along the top edge.
    Anyone with experience let me know.
