Hi all ..

Been a while since I was on here last but .. during the recent ice and snow my car ran off down my daughters quite steep drive .. unfortunately her car was in the way !!

Now I know you guys on here are a fountain of knowledge from past experience so .. can anyone please explain how to remove the Passenger side Door Card from a 2005 - 2 Door A class

Ive looked at it and can't begin to figure how to get it off .. but have this afternoon bought a Hilka Trim & Upholstery set .. in the hope one of you can help .. then I can just kick the dent out !! .. I wish ??

Good news is that Dronsfields have a spare door if all else fails !!

Cheers
Malcolm

Hi Malcolm,

Not that long ago, I put together a few files on W169 doors, including the front door lining (card) removal.

Here's the link: https://we.tl/KrhDXPJkDO

My pleasure :)
Really glad I could help!

I've done a few mods on my car - which is exactly the same: 3-door 169 coupé - so if there's any interest, I'd be happy to share ;)

Of course, feel free to contact me - here, or my email is david.glk @ mail.com (not gmail, just mail)

Those WIS pages are okay, if sometimes a bit brief, but if you follow without rushing it up, you'd be alright :)
