W204 Illuminated Sills - DIY

Fitted these at the weekend and did a DIY for anyone who wants to do this. Did it in PDF form so it can be printed off.

Hope this helps anyone wanting to do this.

Regards
Mark

Ok, for now I made this a sticky until such a time that more DIYs are assembled. Then the responsible mod for the W204, with begging from the membership, might combine all DIYs into one sticky. But that means the membership has to complile them all together and not expect staff to do it for them.

The whole kit was 420 in sterling. Everything comes with the kit but the EPC shows each part as orderable seperately so I guess a dealer could order individual parts. Certainly the CAN module has its own part number.

i guess i wasn't clear enough...

"them" = illuminated door sills... not Mercedes illuminated door sills.

it would have been quite awkward to pick up a 650 with Mercedes sills . i do also prefer the blue light over the orange of the bmw.
