2007 Mercedes Benz C180 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 20,000 miles
I have been told that the whole front bumper has to be removed for respraying, and that I must therefore pay part of the cost, even though only the paint on the sensor strip is faulty. I have seen new front bumpers for sale where the strip that houses the parking sensors is not included, and the bumper has slots where the strip that holds the sensors can be fitted.
The sensors were factory fitted.
Can the sensor strip be removed, repainted and refitted separately to the front bumper?
