Life Hack: W124 Facelift Ashtray Mod

If you're not a smoker and find yourself using the ashtray for your coins or for holding whatever you can fit in there, there's a small tip to make life easier to remove whatever's in there. 

This only applies to the facelift models, the pre-facelift models have a molded plastic insert in their ashtrays, the facelift models have a chrome trim ring around their plastic inserts. 

The chrome rings have little tabs that hold the ring to the plastic molding. You can bend these back a tad and remove the ring.

Then you end up with this. If you have big hands like me, you'll be thankful that chrome ring is gone.
