Hi,
I am in the process of fitting C36 sills to my C230K CLK 208 very similar if not the same, they are held by plastic fixings under the car, and along the door shut line, the holes in the door shut are hidden by either a plastic or sticky strip, you may possibly have to remove the weather strip that runs the length of the door to give the sill clearance.
At the front and rear arches they will possibly use an existing wheel arch liner bolt under the car.
To bring the skirts to the body you will have to remove the existing black rubber strips, in front of and behind the door there is an adhesive kit with material like velcro that brings the skirt close to the body either side of the door, then you will have to fit new trim where the skirt meets the body in front of and behind the door.
I have just ordered all the parts for fitting mine, not cheap, £147 and thats with 10% discount.
Keep us updated on your progress.

Yes you can fit them but you will have to buy some specific fittings to do it.
See my previous post, though it is for a w202 the 208 skirts are fitted exactly the same way.
Full set of clips seals and brackets cost approx £150.

Much easier when you have done it Andy,,,I sent him the papers,,but the real ones come when you buy the complete kit from MB and assume that you have done this.

Thank you for your help

Real ones???

I haven,t fitted my C36 skirts on my C230K as yet, they still need to be painted, but spent a good while and an hour on the EPC at the dealer to Identify the correct items, providing the skirts hes got aren,t the AMG version, these parts i believe are correct.
I to have got the WIS work instruction to fit the skirts but it isn,t very clear, i got just as much info from the EPC as once you sight and see the correct parts to fit the skirts it becomes a lot clearer, and generally quite self explanatory, i found it to be quite confusing though in the case of the 202 it did give a conscise pt's list of all the stuff needed.
