Hi all!

I was really clever today and cracked my gloss black front bumper trim :(

I want to replace it obviously but I have no idea how to remove it

I don't have access to car Jack's or a lift!

Help and advice appreciated

Thanks

One of those days huh?
You could try and remove the under tray or just drop the front part down (not sure how the W205 is) and put you’re hand through and have a feel around for clips and see if you can push the piece of trim out!
Have you got any pictures?

Thanks for getting back to me!

I have attached some photos - hopefully they show what's occurred and how the car is shaped

I’m just guessing here but you could try and drop the front of the skid tray underneath the car usually should only be a couple screws, because I bet this will just push out.
I couldn’t find any helpful images but they’ll be a row of bolts at the front holding the skid tray in place try undoing them and see if you can drop it down and then have a feel to see if that piece of trim is clipped in.
Sorry I couldn’t be any more help!

Sounds like a good idea!

I noticed the pan underneath. I notice there are some push pins holding the centre black trim in place. I'll start there and hopefully make good progress!

Is there any instructions for replacing this sort of stuff?

Also note to self - dont park in parking spaces that have trees in them.... the concrete surround is taller than you think :(
