Folks, need some help. 1998 ML 320. Both bulbs are out and the screws are stripped and rusted, broken off (that hold the lenses in place), I was able to remove the lenses and access the bulbs. I need to remove that plastic trim housing that houses the lights. I barely removed one phillps head screw, got the other one to start spinning, now stripped and cannot be pulled out. It is recessed, so I will figure it out. The part that I need to remove is 163 740 01 93. From photos, looks like 2 screws that I addressed, PLUS 2 studs one the side. Are these studs for the door lock mechanism so I need to remove the inside trim? Do I slide the trim to the left (has right angle traps for the heads of the studs)? Received a repair order from the police. Any help appreciated. I am able to remove this plastic trim, I will get new housings (lenses are still available) and I will make stainless backer nuts (epoxied in).
