stupid question - jack hole cover w124

Hi,

The cover for the hole where you put the jack doohickey to lift the car is attached to the body by a plastic strip. 1994 w124 model.

How does this strip connect to the body? One of my hole covers has this strip, but it just comes out. I'm afraid someday I may loose the hole cover if it happens to fall/pop out.

Thanks for your time. I know it's a really stupid question, but it does bother me - I've tried using a dentist mirror and flashlight to see how the other cover strips are attached, but no luck.

Just like the end that is attached to the rectangular hole cover, there is a T on the opposite end also. It fits through a small hole on the inside of the plastic rocker covering.

So, another stupid question. I just got a '95 W124, and it has the square covers, not the round ones. Do I just put a screwdriver (with a towel over it) and pop out the covers from the bottom?

I don't want to break any external body parts. I've got a mint condition body.

Scratch that, got it off without damage

Jack support points are alot smaller on the '95 W124 over the '89. My jack stands will damage the underneath. Gotta figure out some sort of adapter.

Steven, use a hockey puck under the lift points to avoid damage to the underside of the lower trim.
