I need to remove the front door panels to install new speakers. Does any one know how to do it? I don't want to start pulling without some instruction and some idea where screws, etc might be located. Also, the airbag is a question.

THANKS

The airbag is mounted onto the steel part of the door and doesn’t come of or doesn't need to be disconnected when you take off the door panel.
There is a screw behind the plastic SRS-badge and there is one behind a plastic cover in the arm rest, one near the door handle and...as far as I can remember that is about it (it has been a while since I last removed one).
The door panel itself is attached to the steel plated door by plastic clamps that need to be pulled away straight from the door (be gentle since the clamps are just plastic --> mercedes way of saving money) and the top of the door panel along the window has to be pushed upwards along the window after the plastic clamps along the bottom and sides are all loosened.

good luck & greetingz,

Are you saying that there are three screws?

BTW, I tried to check out your web page but had trouble with the download times. Is that on my end or yours?

Thanks again.

If I remember correctly, there are three screws. The screw behind the SRS tag and at the top of the door handle are for sure, the screw in the armrest is an almost certain faint of my memory.

It may take some time for my website to start and you will probably look at a white screen with html> in the upper left corner...this is due to the host that is displaying my website. Their sites are not the fastest sites to load...Take some time to get it loaded and have a look at my insanity (or hobby as some people call it).

greetingz,
