Front Bumper Filler Piece Removal Euro Mercedes Star License Plate
I am thinking of removing the filler piece from my front bumper, so that I can get the longer narrower European license plate for the front of my W124. I currently have a partial filler that accommodates the shorter US license plates and I want to try to remove it. There are some screws visible and what looks like a spring mechanism of some kind. It might be very simple to remove, but I wanted to ask before I gave it a try and did some damage. Please advise me on how to remove my partial filler piece.
As a second question, I want to know where to get a European version of the Black powder coat license with a chrome star. I often see the US version of the star license plate, but I have not seen the longer narrower European version. There are lots of places to get a custom Euro plate with whatever letters you want, but I want the black license plate with the chrome Mercedes star. I will certainly ask the dealer, but I thought it was worth asking here on the forum.
