Howdy fellas,

5 questions,

1-How do you replace the headliner on a 1995 e320?
2-How do you replace the wood on the console box on a 1995 e320?
3-How do you replace the grill on a 1995 e320?
4-How do you replace the antena mast ( not the motor) and the rubber boot that surrounds it on the outside of the rear fender
5-How do you find a NICE SWEET girl friend who is as good looking as you?

The last one is a joke, but your responses to the 1st four would be greatly apprecated, and the estimated DIY costs and shop prices.

Any input would be appreciated fellas.

I wasn't supposed to tell you, but yes you've been blacklisted. There's a long standing rule in the secret society that four hard questions followed by a joke is grounds for automatic blacklisting. But since you're from Texas and probably didn't know any better I will try to help, at some risk to my personal safety.

Headliner - Don't know.

Console wood - First remove the black trim around the shifter - it just lifts up. Then you have take out the console glove box, with the sliding wood blind. This comes out by removing two screws deep in the front of the box, and then lifting up in front of the box. This will expose a screw holding down the rear of the console wood. Remove that screw and the wood will lift up - unless it's stuck around the window switches, which it often is. Then you have to be very careful not to crack it. Try rocking it by lifting both from the rear and from the shifter opening. It should come up eventually.

Grill - pretty straightforward - six or eight bolts - take them out and the grill pulls right out. I don't think there's even a trick to it.

Antenna - This too I believe is pretty intuitive. There's a two side chrome nut on the outside. Loosen that with an adjustable wrench or open end wrench. I can't remember if you have to take out the trunk liner to secure it on the inside or not. The mast has a plastic geared band that moves around a gear on the antenna motor. To remove the mast you have to turn the radio on so the power unit extends the motor. Then to put it back you turn the radio off to pull it back down. I'm a little hazy on this but hopefully someone else will break ranks and provide more detail.
