    Hello All:
    Some general questions - I know I've seen a post on the door trim, but haven;t been able to search it out.

    1) I've lost the link to a graphics supplier that had union jack graphics that were oval shaped and designed to extend from the side scuttles of a Gen 2, much like the Sidewalk edition graphic - but now I can't find the site. Can anyone help?

    2) The piano black door rings on my '07 MCS are scratched.I'd like to replace them or buff them out. I can't recall if they are easily replaceable - I seem to recall they had to be drilled out? Has anyone done this?

    3) Does anyone have directions on how to replace the cigar lighter? Mine no longer stays clipped in the console when I remove a phone charger (actually, it's been this way since I bought the car used).

    4) Finally, does anyone else get their pant leg caught around the seat adjuster when they exit the car? I do this all the time!

    Thanks so much for any help!

    PM me, I have contact info at home

    Not sure how scratched they are, I have the same thing on mine and have used Griot's plastic polish and plastic cleaner to great success

    These inserts are of course part of the door panel that 'wraps' around the center part of the door, have never ventured into removing inserts themselves. My *guess* is you need to replace the entire panel



    Thanks so much for any help![/QUOTE]
