Check that the boot lid sits right and does not slamming to close.. Check for space around the boot lid is even all the way around to determine if the panelling as been moved . Check the area around the bumper mounts and check for wrinkles and signs that normally flat sections are bent.. Check that the area where the bumper is close to the body that the paint has not been bruised or damaged.. Check tail light assemblies are still fitting correctly in the holes . Best have an experienced panel beater have an inspection as they are trained to spot blemishes from accidents.

SOURCE: I'm not sure how to remove the exterior door trim

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect any other wiring that may be attached to the door. Then you need to pull back the weather seal and then you can disconnect the screws and clips that secure the outside trim to the door.

Stereo installation

There are 2 types of wood trim on the s-class. One is a solid piece and the other is split in the middle. Remove the ac pushbutton panel, remove the shifter trim and remove the cigar lighter insert. If it is a solid panel, then you will unscrew two screws underneath where the ac panel was and I believe that with the ac panel out of the way you can reach in and pull the radio head out. If you need to remove more, then be very careful with the wood-very costly. If it is the split wood, look for a screw on the back of the cigar lighter wood trim(you've already removed the insert, right). You need a 1/4 in. ratchet with a screwdriver bit to access. You only need to loosen it up and slip it off. With the wood out of the way, look for two hidden screws on the inside front edge of the center console wood panel-right behind the wood cover you just removed. These will have to come out as well. Once they are out, pull up gently on the front of the rear wood panel(around the shifter) and slip out, There are likely two more screws underneath this panel. Take them out to remove upper wood trim.
