Question about Mercedes-Benz 190-Class

3 Answers

I have a replacement rear bumper/fender (the plastic shell) for my '93 190e 2.0, but its different to the original - the right dimensions, but its one piece that fits right around from one wheel arch to the other. Problem is there;s 3 pieces to the original - main piece across the back (easily removed) and smaller sections just behind the wheels on each side. The brackets on the new shell are right where these two are sitting. So what I'm stuck with is, how to get these off safely, and, if I do, will I then find that I can fit my new one-piece shell in their place? If not, I guess I'll need to put them back on and find a buyer for my new shell! Thank you for any thoughts. Dylan

    thank you Darklord, thats a good idea but I hope someone out ther might have done this already!

  • Dylan Devon Jul 17, 2008

    Not sure if I've misjudged what fixya is all about, but I'm pretty sure I could have come up with either of those ideas on my own without thinking too hard. Thank you for the contributions, but I'm just hoping one of the premium experts that I've been promised might be able to offer something a bit more advanced.

    Thank you DARKLORD, that is indeed really useful - my last posting was directed to a rather less helpful suggestion.
    Your input is much appreciated.

    BTW are you sure you got the correct part, they usually have european and american models, one is wrap around (complete) and the other is in 3 parts.. If you cant get the original you may need to do some modifications to get it to fit and bolt up.. Anyway here is the source of that info and this can basically allow you to fix ANYTHING IN YOUR CAR http://www.10w40.com/pages/manuals_shipm...

How can I replace rear bumper?


Plastic buttons(they break) hold this on mostly, Top and bottom. At the fender wells you will find screws/bolts you have to remove. Nothing is hidden. Follow the perimeter of the bumper and you find the buttons and screws. To easy.

How do you remove the rear fenders on a 2001 vw beetle do you have to drop the gas tank?


no the gas tank has nothing to do with it ..first thing is that the two rear fenders and rear bumper cover are bolted together and must be removed as a unit. First thing remove the inner fenders on both of the rear tires then look up and remove the T30 torq bolts and 10mm nuts on bottom the brake light housings must be removed from inside of the trunk there are 2 covers in the corners pop them out and ther will be a plastic knob remove taking care not to drop them then pop out lights with a small flat tip screwdriver unplug lights then take loose the gas door screw and remove clip holding the latch then pull out latch taking care to not break it. then remove all the screws on the outside under the rear deck lid T30 torq .gently pull on fenders and pull off the rear fender/bumper cover assembly taking care to not pull out oo far then take off 8mm nuts from heat shield on left backup lamp and unplug lights ..there u go the all u have to do is unblot the fenders and ur good to go

I want to remove the right front fender and would like to know where all the nuts and bolts etc. that need to be removed are and the easiest way of going about it?


I just did this.
Remove the fender liner
Remove the mud guard

There are several 6mm flange bolts with 10mm heads.
3 along the inside of the hood
1 behind the top of the door accessible with the door open
2 on the bottom of the door behind the mud guard
2 behind the bumper cover, the headlight is attached to one of these.
There is a screw holding the end of the bumper to the fender. Remove it and pull the cover away from the fender. There is a large plastic clip inserted into the fender next to the two bolts that holds the bumper cover but should release when you pull the cover.

The headlight has two dowel pins that insert into the fender, removing the headlight may be better but you have to remove the bumper to get to some of the headlight assembly bolts. There are 4 bolts holding on the bumper that are accessible through the turn signal holes. The bumper will "fall" about an inch and sit on some collar bolts so it can be lifted off without one side falling (a neat feature). The turn signal is held by one Phillips screw accessible through a special hole on the inboard side of the bumper with your longest Phillips screwdriver.

I neede to remove the headlights for my 2008 E 350 and need instructions. OIt appears that removing the front bumper is needed ? Thanks


Here's some instructions for removing bumper and headlights.

E-Class W211 front bumper removal (standard body style).

Tools needed:
- Automotive wheel ramps (Rhino ramps from Autozone).
- 1/4" drive socket set with 8mm and 10mm sockets.
- #20 torx bit.
- Floor jack, optional but useful.
- Flat blade screwdriver.

Instructions for bumper removal:

1) Turn front wheels full right to remove push-pin fastener at lower front corner of left wheel well plastic splash guard. It's difficult to remove this fastener once the car is up on the wheel ramps.

2) Turn front wheels full left to remove push-pin fastener at lower front corner of right wheel well plastic splash guard.

3) Drive car up on wheel ramps. Block rear tires. Open hood.

4) Remove lower mesh plastic grille. There are five attachment points on the top edge of the grille. You can get to three of them with your hand by reaching between the radiator and the back side of the grille. The two outer ones can be released with a screwdriver also reaching in between the grille and radiator. Once the plastic tabs are released, you can remove the grille by pulling it out from the front of the car.

5) Remove the plastic panel located immediately behind the bumper from the bottom of the engine compartment. This panel is held in place with nine sheet metal screws with a 8mm hex head. Five screws are on the bottom of the car and there are two screws in each wheel well at the inner lower edge. After removing all nine screws you can work the panel free.

6) Disconnect the cable from each fog light and remove both fog lights. They are held in place by two sheet metal screws with a #20 torx head.

7) Remove the side marker bulbs. The one on the passenger side turns clockwise to remove and the one on the driver side turns counter-clockwise.

8) Remove the temperature sensor from its socket on the driver side.

9) If you have a floor jack, raise the car at the jack point on the cross member below the engine. You do not want to raise it off the wheel ramps. But it helps to have more clearance above the tires to work in the front wheel wells.

10) Remove three of the plastic nuts holding the forward half of the plastic wheel well liner in place. It's not necessary to remove the plastic liner. You just need to loosen it up so that you can pull it away from the fender to gain access to the screw and bracket securing the bumper to the fender.

11) Pull back the wheel well liner and remove the sheet metal screw from the rear end of the metal bracket . There is only one sheet metal screw (#20 torx head) holding this bracket in place. Don't attempt to remove the bracket yet. I used a #20 torx bit in a 1/4" socket with a 6-inch extension for a 1/4" drive wrench. The head of the screw faces the ground.

12) Remove the 5mm bolts (8mm hex head) holding the bumper to the headlight assembly between the small lens and large lens (both sides).

13) Remove the two 6mm bolts (10mm hex head) on either side of the large grille area opening.

14) Remove the two 6mm bolts (10mm hex head) securing the bumper to the bottom edge of the crashbar. You can access these bolts through the front where you removed the plastic mesh grille.

15) Remove the three 5mm bolts (8mm hex head) holding each headlight assembly in place. Two longer bolts are on top. One at the rear outer corner and one at the front inner corner. The third bolt is accessed from the bottom. It's in the area above the fog lamps. You don't need to disconnect the headlight cables and remove the assembly. But it helps to allow the headlight assembly to "float" freely while you disengage the bumper from the fender.

16) At this point all of the fasteners holding the bumper in place have been removed. The only thing left to do is to remove the two brackets "clamping" the bumper cover to the lower front edge of the front fenders. Before you do this, position some cardboard boxes, bags of packing material, six packs of paper towels, or other suitable items to protect the bumper in case it falls off the car.

17) The bracket holding the bumper cover to the fender has a "pin" that slips into a slot at the front edge of the bumper cover. There is a matching slot near the front edge of the fender. It's not possible to see this pin from the bottom of the car. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the bracket away from the bumper/fender and towards the center of the car. The bracket will "hinge" on the pin at the front end of the bracket. After you swing the bracket away from the bumper, you need to slide it forward to remove it from the slot in the bumper cover and fender. You will probably scratch some paint off of this bracket with the screwdriver. I recommend repainting the scratched areas of the bracket before reinstalling it.

18) After removing the bracket from each side of the car you need to deal with the small plastic "hook" holding the bumper cover to the very front tip of the fender. This hook is an integral part of the bumper cover. Disengaging this hook from the fender is probably the most difficult step of removing the bumper. Simultaneously raise the head light assembly slightly, push the leading edge of the fender outward slightly, and push the bumper cover inward toward the headlight assembly. Don't get too aggressive with the fender. It's aluminum and you will make a real mess if you apply too much pressure on the fender. It took me about 20 minutes to free each side from this hook. It should take you less time, since you now know that the hook exists!

19) Gently pull the bumper forward and away from the car. This is one step where a second person would be helpful. But I did manage to do this step alone. There is a "pulley" like attachment point on each side just below the fender/bumper seam.

To re-install the bumper, reverse the order of the steps above. When re-installing the bracket between the bumper cover and fender, I smeared a thin coating of car wash soap on the bracket to facilitate snapping the bracket back into place.

Rear bumper on mazda mpv


Removal of the rear bumper on an Mazda 2004 to 2006 MPV.
It's afairly simple task: 1) Open the rear hatch or (door) remove the torx screws at the bottom of the weather strip. 2) Remove both tail lights by unscrewing the two phillip screws on each light, once removed the lights pulling toward the side of the van. Let them hang from the wires. You will see a clip (white in color),pry it out from behind the bumper material and go to the next step. 3) Remove three 8mm head screws in each fender well and three plastic clips. Then remove an 8mm screw at the top corner of the bumper against the rear fender. If your car has splash guards remove them as well. 4) Remove the two clips at the bottom of the bumper attached to the under carriage. 5) Pull the bumper toward the back of the vehicle be careful with the tail lights. Remember, they are hanging loose.
And that's it, you have done it.
