Question about 1998 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Posted by Anonymous on
There are three solutions to this problem. 1. Remove the fibreglass backing completely. Remove all screws, etc., and carefully remove through the left hand passenger side door (on RH drive cars) and visa versa. Buy a used backing from breakers. Instal. 2. With backing out of car, remove all traces of foam padding from lining and backing. This has to be done properly or the next step won't work. Buy +- 3m of padded material from upholstery suppliers and +- 1L of contact adhesive. Apply contact adhesive to both sides of material, wait for it to become tacky and stick down. Let stand for about 6hours. Now cut apertures for mirror and grab handles, etc., and instal. 3. With backing out of car, slowly peel off lining without tearing, remove all traces of foam padding. Apply contact adhesive to both cleaned lining and backing as evenly as possible. Remove the metal frames by bending the lips back. Wait about 30 minutes and, with backing in a VERTICAL position, starting with the mirror aperture at the top, slowly contact the lining to the backing. You might want to get assistance here. Work your way down slowly. Don't worry too much if there are minor creases. With a mild hairdrier they can be removed after about 24hours. Obviously you want as few creases as possible. Try to line up the apertures as close as possible. Instal the metal frames. Your lining can now be re-installed. It won't be as soft as the original but it won't sag!
