Do the trim pieces in the rear bumper of a facelift SLK come out and if so how? I've looked on the Russian parts site but it's not clear.

I'm planning to fit reversing sensors to mine tomorrow and want to fit them in this trim so that I don't have to drill the bumper. So before I dive in and break something :Oops: can someone please tell me how to remove this trim?

It would be nice to have some piccys as i would like to do this mod.Is the reversing sensor kit the one that runs off the reversing lightwire and just bleeps or has it a display as well??
The wireless type looks great but do they work??

I took loads of pictures as I did the job so I'll post a thread detailing what I did as it might help others.

The kit I used was the buzzer type with no display as I didn't want one of those. It was just under £20 off Ebay and I'm very impressed with the quality.
