Post Help! Need to remove scratches from center console simulated wood cover


I have a 2006 E350 sedan (Minnesota.) My 2 yr old daughter just scratched the finish on the simulated wood center console cover (the sliding cover over the cup holders.)

The scratches are only in the finish (i.e., the plastic laminate covering.)

Searching the internet I found the following products in a cadillac forum - the interior in CTS' is simulated wood, but with a black lacquer finish. Althought it should work the same for my MB (honey/walnut finish?), but just checking if anyone has any advice.

Thanks in advance.

I didn't think Mercedes used fake wood in any car. I believe it is real wood that is heavily clearcoated. I could be wrong, but before I tried anything I'd talk to a detalier that may have some experience with the car.

Agreeing about the real wood/clearcoated. Once scratched these are not easy to fix well. Search around on the Deatailing forum and you should find a couple threads on this.
