If the teak is bare teak --- a light sanding with a sanding block should be good and then follow that with a good rub down of teak oil ( sea-fin teak oil is a good brand ).
if the teak is finished teak --- and you want to remove the old finish and sand out any stains(?) then you will need to use a more aggressive sand paper and finish off with a lighter sand paper,, clean up with acetone, use a good tack cloth and start applying varnish -- the best varnish that I have ever used is a brand called ' Epiphanes ' and you will either want to use a ' matte ' finish or a ' gloss /semi-gloss ' finish. personally I have found the 'matte ' finish to look better and it brings out the true beauty of the teak itself. ( make sure you follow the sanding instructions between coats as this will give you a nice smooth and sharp look ).
enjoy the water ---

How do I remove black water stains from normally oiled teak wood?


well 1st you need to determine what stains are made from ? if there a food stain then there most likely made from a grease of some sort , if this is so then denatured alcohol will take them off (with a bit of rubbing ) if there a rust or mildew stain then you'll have to use something stronger like muriatic acid (diluted w water 50/50) also note never add water to acid but instead add acid to water (yes it makes a huge difference) , this is dangerous stuff and all safe precautions need to be taken with it , this will also require all the teak oil finish to be reapplied after acid is neutralized with say baking soda and water (paste) and dried in air as this rough chemical will remove all the woods natural oils

while teak is a nice wood to have (beautiful looking) when something like this happens to it , it sure is a expensive wood to maintain

Can not get rear passenger door panel off


there should be a screw behind the handle to open the door and a few more behind the wood trim panel. then the panel pops off.be sure not to loose the gaskets that are on the retaining clips.the wood trim pops off too. be careful. the wood is delicate.the shade assy should bolt to the inside of door not interior panel.

02 jaguar xtype how to manually open doors if handle is broken


Hi

if the door is locked and wont open from the inside or outside then you have to remove the interior door trim, this can be tricky as the seat is in the way, you can often just remove al the top brackets holding the door trim on and get your hand down inside the door to pull the metal bar than opens the door.

Do you need a step by step guide? you can do this your self, quite an easy job just takes a little patience.

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.
