The salvage yards are all online now. You could do your own search or go to a body shop and ask for help locating a good used door trim.

Hey C-Rod on the passenger door the material has a bubble in it like the material is coming apart from the door. Anyway the dealer wants over 500.00 for it so I'm trying other routes. I heard you were thinking of changing your bumper hows that going? I do like the newer style bumpers.

Thanks for asking.....l was able to get my hands on a 02 rear bumper...l like the detail on the bottom...l purchased it from virtualjunkyard.us ..good guys to deal with.....But of course, when l was recently at my dealership, he asked, if l would be interested in selling.....To be honest, the W164, for some strange reason, isn't that appealing to me.....l thought, seeing it, in person at the Detriot Auto show would help, but it didn't...l've always wanted a ML 55, so l asked the used car manager at the dealership to keep at eye out for a 01, or 02 ML 55...We agreed in principal, to about $22,000 for my ML..so my wife gave me the O.K.....l'll keep you abreast of the on going developments.....lf it goes through....would you be interested in the 02 rear bumper???????it needs to be painted, and of course, retro-fitted a bit....but as l said, l'll let you know...l hope this pans out!!!!!!

Have you had an upholstery shop look at it? I had a similar problem with the dash padding on a car years ago and they were able to shoot some glue into the bubble with a hypodermic. It left the tiniest of puncture marks on the vinyl that only the repair guy and I would ever notice. You can often find guys with these types of skills and equipment hanging out on used car lots.

Hey Rodney thanks I'll check into that, a repair would be better than 500 bucks for a new door panel.

That's a great idea if it can be done. As a suggestion, they ought to be able to shoot the glue from the back side, since it's really easy to pop off the door panel. This would prevent any visible holes in the door panel.

Well I tried to repair the door myself and messed it up bad my wife was laughing at me. Went through the salvage yard online and within 2 hours I had a new door for 150.00. I guess If I had to pay to get it fixed it might have cost 100.00 anyway. Thanks for the help.

Anybody know if the 2000 and up interior door panels with the leather with fit 1998-1999 plastic models? Are the airbags in different places? I always wanted to beef up the door panels. I know stefan used Gucci on his 1998 and it came out nice.

I'd be surprised if they moved the airbag but the airbag itself may be different to work with the new panel. Someone needs to look behind their panel for you.

C-Rod, how much did it cost you to have that bumper shipped to Canada?
