On my SLK 320 the rubber trim along the bottom edge of the body needs replacing.
The pieces under the doors are good but to each side of the doors those pieces are what really needs replacing.
What do you call these pieces?A
ny clues on where to get them?
Is this is a DIY or if you need a shop to do it?

Tried a search on here but obviously don't know the terms to use to bring this topic up if its on here.

Been looking online can't seem to locate these parts. Also can't read the parts list to see the name of these.
If anyone knows of a direction to look please let me know.

I'll check in on this later as I'll be out to dinner! :grin:'

The cost is definitely do-able! I am ready to order but I am wondering if anyone has taken apart this part of the car and if this is a DIY job for a novice like me or if I would need a body shop? I've been looking for something online to show me the procedure of replacing these "covers" but have not found anything as of yet.
As with most of us, I would love to be pointed to some pics/video or step by step instructions.
This is a spot on the car that I think really looks crappy (see pic-piece under door is good but front and rear trim is cracked with missing pieces).
I can't wait to see this repaired/replaced!

Get new clips - they will probably break on removal. They are not all the same so make sure you get the right ones.

Hey McSLK - any luck with your trim replacements? I have the same problem on my wife's 2001 320 but I've been holding off on buying the replacement parts because I am unsure of the clips required for the job. As usual, Jeff has been superb in responding but even the pdf parts file is unclear as to which clips are required for the "covers".


Anyway, if you were successful please let me know about the clips and I will get this fix done.


many thanks
