My SO, aka "the destroyer of Benzes" (wrecked my last 500SEL), has managed to rip out the plastic panel on the passenger side door by catching it on a high curb and pulling on the door. The panel is still held to the door from the upper attachments but is flapping like a doggie-door because nothing holds onto it at the bottom. What parts do I need to repair this? It seems like plastic holding pins were broken in the process...

Ha snap! Except I pulled mine clean off, and didn't realise 'till I got home!

Mine just popped back on, but it had the earlier crinkled panels. I know the later smooth ones are a bugger to get back on as the little platic clips just snap. Easy enough to replace though.

I have the later "smooth" panels (the ones colored the same as my paint and without the ribbed pattern)... It seems like there's a white plastic screw/retaining clip thing involved and that has broken clean off.

I suppose the dealership's probably a good place to get a replacement. How do I remove the panel to replace the broken pieces?
