Many covers on these cars are held in by one or two screws, and then you lift a bit, and pull towards you, revealing tabs that fit in slots away from you.
There are not any screws here, however, you may be able to pop the grille off.
You have to remove the rear seat back in order to remove the rear speaker grilles. After removing the seat back you very carefully slide the whole speaker cover forward. There are tabs that slide into the rear parcel shelf.
There is a ball attachment on the front edge of the grill, in the center. Pry up gently to unsnap the ball, then slide the grill forward to remove. I did not need to remove the seatback to do it. As with most aged plastic bits, pateince is a virtue, don't be in a hurry.
I've not had to remove anything to pull the rear speaker covers off, either, though mine is a Bose system...might be different for others.
Just gently, very gently, slide the plastic covers toward the front of the car, and the tabs will let go of the parcel shelf's housing. I've yet to be able to get my driver's side one back on without the slightest bit of fabric wrinkling, the parcel shelf 'carpet', but so it goes.
The fronts, to remove the grills, you need a short, small Phillip's screwdriver. A short #1 should do it, but you might need a large 'electronics' screwdriver, the kind which go from really small to I-can-tell-it's-a-screwdriver size. They usually have tops which spin....
Sun + plastic = very brittle plastic needing only a slight touch to turn to powder, in many cases, so after 20 years, expect to hear some bad noises as you take apart interior pieces. It doesn't help the rear speaker covers have that nice, large window under which to bake.
I have a chance to install an awesome wood/ leather steering wheel on my 88 SEC. My car is one that was equipped with an air bag from the factory. The new wood wheel is a non air bag unit. I know I can remove the old wheel and simply remove the air bag indicator light and it will work but my...
This is my first Merc, I mainly mess around with 80's bimmers and have a couple e30s and an e28. I decided to try my luck with this 420sel, as it was running and driving and was only 350$. The car has a list of problems that I will address later, but the most prevalent mechanical...
Searched, and a couple of questions on the Gen II front brake upgrade on my 1984 500SEC with 15" 560 wheels.
I am a street driver who needs new callipers and rotors, so this is a good time to upgrade.
Is the Gen II swap currently the biggest bang for the buck option? - Uber expensive...
If this is duplicated, please let me know. I searched for a similar (what did you do to your 123.....) thread here, but did not find one, so I will start off:
The dash in my 300SD was so bad (even the Coverlay dash cap was cracked!), I decided to replace it with one I got a while back. I am...
