Hoping you can help me outâ€¦ Okay you know how some of the W140 owners have the rear side door "SunBlinds"â€¦ well I wanted a set too and put in a order with my local dealership off the part numbers that I got off our forum prior to doing so I did ask others in the forums if the sun blinds came in any other colorsâ€¦ and was told no just black!
Well first and foremost I have a 1999 S500â€¦ when I gave the dealership my VIN # they stated that under my vehicle VIN # there werenâ€™t any "SunBlinds" available as original equipment for the vehicle and under original accessories there wasnâ€™t any available for my vehicle eitherâ€¦ and I told the parts department manager thereâ€™s no way that they canâ€™t be available and that I have seen these SunBlinds on a number of W140â€™s (I even went as far as to email him a picture of a set on a W140) and he stated to me that they were aftermarketâ€¦ I stated no they are notâ€¦ so hereâ€™s the problem that I ran into and am still in (added note they would not tell me what the part number for the product was so I gave them the part number I had insteadâ€¦ â€śPartâ€™s Managerâ€¦ was like wow itâ€™s a valid part number and added we donâ€™t give out part numbers but we can order parts for youâ€ť)â€¦ what the heck does that mean?
Part numbers that I got off of our forum postingsâ€¦
B6-6-69-1323 left rear sunblind (Color: Black) good
B6-6-69-1191 (Number was updated from B6-6-69-1324) right rear sunblind (Color: Brown) problemâ€¦
B/C I ordered it they said they couldnâ€™t return itâ€¦ and I told them I have no problem paying for the parts but come on one Black and one Brownâ€¦ I donâ€™t think so and had to talk to the dealership manager to get this item reversed on my credit-card (after having raised hell in front of every single person in thereâ€¦ not good I know)â€¦ reiterated to the dealership manager that I have no problem paying for the item but coming on what am I going to do with one Black and one Brown "SunBlind"â€¦? He stated that they were just going off the part numbers that I gave themâ€¦ and I told him that when I placed the order I asked (like 5 times do they come in any color other than blackâ€¦ was told that B/C the part doesnâ€™t show that it is for a W140 of my year he couldnâ€™t tell me but that he didnâ€™t think they came in any other color â€śPartâ€™s Manager statementâ€ťâ€¦
So please helpâ€¦
What model year W140 did they make this part forâ€¦ (B/C it doesnâ€™t show that its available for the 1999 S500 W140â€¦ but the part numbers I gave them are validâ€¦ go figure)!
What is the part numbers for the right side in blackâ€¦ (B/C they have no clue)?
What are the different colors that the SunBlinds come in and what are their part numbersâ€¦?
