thanks for the help so far...curious about getting part info
I recently purchased a 99 clk430 (39k mi...whoop whoop), and had the problem with the sunroof opening intermittently and only shutting with the tilt...thanks tstakumi for the reset trick!! (hold down the close button for 10 secs..i did it for 20)
So, before I discovered this awesome site and found the solution, I opened up the "trim panel" that houses the sunroof switch and the interior lights to look around. I found that there was some tricky supergluing done to hold the passenger side lens on, and that, the plastic "molding" is broken up and is only really being held in place by one of the two clips (driver side).
Well, I don't want to rig it back up there. This is my first mercedes and I don't know much about the vehicles. I was hoping you guys could hook me up with some info. I was thinking I could get lucky and try searching some junk yards first.
For this specific part and for future reference, I was wondering what other model years I could pull the part from.
Also, I was thinking I could try the other CLKs...yes/no, any other models?
If this doesn't work, are there any good sites that you all could recommend for getting parts like these?
Any other advice or recommendations for a newbe would be greatly appreciated!!
