Inside grab handles, the upholstery on the center console cover, and door trim panels can delaminate. Most commonly replacement of the affected part is necessary.

    The passenger door handle is so broken/lose/weak/, I tried gluing it and it didn't work. Door handles are cheap and not sturdy at all.

    Replaced both door grabs on the inside of the vehicle. The first was covered under the 50,000 warranty and second just cost me $237.00. Is this a recalled item by Mercedes?

    Both inside handles came off - the top part. It seems to be a defect if this occured at the same time. It sucks that something so simple can cause so much incovenience. How can Mercedes Benz allow this?

    Car's got relatively low miles for her age & I way barely 100 pounds. Happy to learn that I didn't break the door pulls with my "brute force".

    Both Handles one side popped out first, later broke the entire handles. I purchase the parts from Benz dealer for $45 each, paid $150 for labor.

    Inside door handle - front seat passenger side. Top part of handle broken. Second time this has happened - first time at about 32,000 miles. Had first one fixed at dealer for ~$200. This time I ordered the part on ebay from Keenan Motors LTD for $37 plus $5 shipping. Will fix it myself this time. And I will have the broke piece to see if I can glue in a reinforcement for when it fails again.
