Hello

Wanting to give the car a good clean and around the boot there are plastic trim pannels that seem to be dirt traps. Car is a 2010 cabrio e class.

Anyone know how to remove them?
Looks like little plastic rivet type things, do they just pop out? They don't have a hex or slot for a screw driver

Those rivets lift out to remove the locking pin then the panel should pop off looking at that pic.

As above they do just pull out carefully. The pin can be pushed back out so as to re use them.
The part is “expansion rivet A 000 990 8492 should you need any.

With some of those type retainers, you have to push the centre pin inwards, and then the clip pops out,,,,,problem with this kind is that sometimes, its impossible to find the centre pin afterwards.....:geek:

Those pins pull up, shaped like a T.
