DIY and How to Guides for w204 All Together

Here is a list of all the DIYs I could find in the w204 section of the site. Sometimes the search is tricky and does not return the results one might be looking for. Many of these have been helpful in my experience. I did not make any of these, just put them together so they are easy to find on the forum. Thanks to those who took the time to make them.

The easiest one to remove, pop off grille with a butterknife, front part first, then the speaker is secured with two torx 25

There is no more room or "Edit" Option on my first thread, so I cannot add to the initial list. Maybe the admins can? Idk

May be the second one can put them in the 2nd post (Savage)

otherwise it will be a mess....

Or any Admin can give you more space...

And if not, may be they can delete the posts with no DIY link.....


(like this one ;-) )
