I now know why no one responded. I spent two hours trying to get at the thing today and got only as far as the rear deck cover. I beleive somone has performed this job on some MB somewhere in the world before. However, it was such a traumatic PIA that they do not wish to relive the details
. So if there is a brave soul out there that can handle the night sweats that surely come with rehashing this procedure then I will listen. All seriousness aside, what is the trick!!!
