As asked in the C63 section, are these w204 specific? How do the rear ones install? AZN_300 purchased a set from Brabus and the set was not w204 specific and he had to modify to fit the rear ones IIRC. Hope he chimes in.

actually, mine were the 204 ones. fronts are screw ons so no problem. although true the rear caps can fit over the existing rear pins, it will look ugly as they don't fit over the whole length of the oem pin, just the upper thin part. this was unacceptable to me as i wanted them flush when locked. to do so, you'll need to pull out the existing pin, then either rubber pressure fill like ron jr did, rubber cement fill, or more difficultly, remove door panel, shave existing pin down, and press cap over tightly.

make sure the pin model number is 204-819-00 not 203-819-00, as Brabus mistakenly put the wrong model number for their pins on the 204 catalogue. 204 rear pins should be shorter and wider than fronts. more than one shop has made that mistake using the outdated original 204 catalog.

So, how do you get the front ones off then?
And in the back it means taking of the entire panel?

Front ones screw off, very simple though they may be VERY tight. My passanger side would not budge so I used some needle nose vice grips that I covered with masking tape. Came off no problem and with no scratches. Unfortunatly the rears have to be pulled off, which destroys them.

My kids already pulled off the ones on the back doors, so what did you use to "rubber pressure fill" the new rear pins?
