hello, does anyone have any idea how to detach the mercedes star from the trunk. I want to replace it with a black one. this is the new star that opens when you drive backwards with the camera. according to the garage it is not possible to have it wrapped because it has a new coating and the wrapping then curls up

I ordered a gloss back star from ebay and took it to a shop for install. It didn't work out. It looks bad right now because the star isn't the correct size.

I went ahead and ordered the star part # 09981085003589 from MB. It comes with the star and the paint matched background. In my case it is Jupiter Red. I will wrap/plastidip it black when it gets here and then I'll take it to my friend at the MB dealership by me for installation if I can't figure it out.

It is a lot more difficult than any other MB I've owned.
