2002 CLK clear bumper lens installation

I recently purchased clear bumper lenses for my 2002 CLK 430. They didnt come with any screws which leads me to believe that they may just clip in/out. I dont want to go digging around my stock lenses with a screwdriver if that is not the case. Could someone who has done this type if installation explain the process? Or perhaps point me to a good web site, or mercedes repair manual? That would rule.

Check the w220 forum, I believe that they pry right out.

Talking Clear Lenses

That's the easiest thing you'll do to your car. Flat head and the slide right out. Remove the bulb with with counter-clockwise turn. Look in your owners manual if you want but it's really that easy!!!

Mods: 20" Foose Speedstars (225/35), 3M 20% tint, Chrome sports grill w/ 6.5" star, flat hood ornament, chrome shift surround, chrome headlight and tailight rings, chrome exhaust tip, and clear side markers. Audio: Phoenix Gold OCTANE-R 9.0:5 and SX65 Boston Acoustics.

Just changed mine the other day. I had the same concerns about chipping my paint. I used a thin piece of rubber as a cushion for my miniature flat head screwdriver. Just do not let any metal contact the paint. Use a business card as a cushion, if nothing else. Using the smallest flat head screwdriver, carefully pry out the front end side of the lens. The whole lens will pop out the second you place the slightest pressure. Carefully remove the bulb with a twist; insert the bulb in the new lens with a twist; slip in the back end side of the lens; line up the front end side of the lens; a quick slap with the palm of your hand, and your are done. The simplest mod I have ever done. It takes less than five minutes to do both sides.
