Sorry to bump a dead thread.
Very sorry to bump a dead thread, but i'm desperately looking for a w163 skyview wind deflector, either the full kit or the plastic visor.
I need to find a replacement for a broken plastic visor/deflector on a 99 ML320 skyview model. All other parts (brackets, bolts, etc) are fine, only the actual deflector is damaged and needs a replacement.
I'm aware that these things are virtually impossible to find nowadays, but i'd be eternally greatful for hints on how to find parts. I'll take either a full kit or just the plastic deflector. Would even consider buying a reasonably priced salvage vehicle (under 1k) just for the part.
I'm in the DC metro area and am in the process of checking local junkyards (e.g. Potomac German, etc), since dealers advise that this item is not in production anymore.
If I can't find it anywhere, I'm considering having a replacement plastic deflector custom made, since that seems to be my last recourse. Hoping someone on Benzforum can offer advice before it comes to that, though.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
