Check in the trunk near to the back seat backrest and the carpet may cover it. There may be plugs over the access holes also.

Remove the rear seat


What type of vehicle? Most rear seats you push down and back on front edge to unlock the clip that holds seat in place, but some have bolts along front edge.

hi you need to remove back seat and maybe the back seatbelt brackets on each side as they can get in the way then you can get to the 3bolts that hold the top of each shock in with a small socket or angled spanner

How replace the rear shocks on mercedes 420 sel


You will need to remove the rear seats to access the hole just above the shock. Remove the bottom seat cushion first, then find the small bolts that hold the upper seat to the frame. Once removed, you will see access to the top of the shocks (might have a plastic covering the hole).

How do i replace the back shocks?


if you bounce the car by putting your weight on the rear bumper with your knee you can test the rear shocks. If the car bounces more than once on the way up you need shocks. I generally replace shocks on new cars with factory installed shocks anywhere from 40,000 - 50,000 miles. There are bolts at the top and bottom of the shocks that will have to be removed. You can do this a little easier by removing the rear wheels and placing the car on Jack Stands.
