I own a 1995 C280 and the vinyl armrests on the MB-Tex front door panels have dscolored and turned dirty - is it possible to replace them w/o buying an entire new door panel? The parts guy at my local dealer says so, that they screw off, and are attatchd to the door panel buy screws, but they look like plastic pressure scres to me. Anyhow, can they be replaced and obtained individually? Please advise on how you would do that. Also, they squeak in hot weather - not the handle part of them, but the armrest part of them. I would appreciate any help in this matter. Thanks,

Assuming that you have thoroughly cleaned them with the proper juice - try a variety of them, including white wall tire cleaner and a brush, and they are still discolored, you can buy a spray vinyl finish at many auto paint stores that will give you a new vinyl look. Be sure to do a clear top coat over the color coat as it greatly improves the wear.
