It's been a while since I've been here. February to be exact. Partly due to computer probs shortly after my last posting. Anyway, I've had a search for answers to my problem and couldn't find any, so can anyone tell me how to safely and non destructively remove the side rubbing strips on my '99 W202 behind the front wheels and ahead of the rear wheels, and also the plastic sill covers? I need to embark on round two of my attempts to erradicate and repair the inevitable rust on the wheel arches and this time around I think I need to get the trims off to do a better job. My Haynes manual doesn't seem to cover things like removing body trim, and my impression is that I'm going to break something if I try to pull it off and then it won't go back! Cheers.
