I knew I needed a new door stop (check ?), but I haven't had time to take it in. I just opened the rear door and now it won't close. I applied a decent amount of pressure but no luck. Anything I can do to close it temporarily so I can drive the car ???

Is that easy to replace for someone who does not normally work on cars ? That way I can get the part and replace it tomorrow (weekend) instead of waiting to take it in on Monday.

Help is appreciated.....

The hardest part is removing the interior panel. The strap itself is just held in place by 3x10mm bolts at one end and a metal pin at the other that just taps out when you pull the circlip off.

Thanks to exceptionally detailed set of instructions on an older post by Geeky1, and a few others I was able to take the door panel off with relative ease and remove the stuck door check.

Thank you for your help....

PS: I was not too terribly impressed by my first experience with Mercedes Roadside Assistance.
