My door grab handles are a bit chipped and i would like to replace or paint them.
Has any one removed the inner one from there door card??
How is it fixed as i know on some other MBs its plastic welded onto the door card and you have to drill it out.
I see you can buy both parts but does the inner one need to be plastic welded on ??.

Car is a R170

It appears the handle is screwed to the liner (3x screws).

Ive just ordered the paint from volico in germany.
What kind of primer should i use??
I cant seem to budge the outer cover so i guess i.ll have to mask the handles up
